On narrow or busy sidewalks, it can be tough to get around. The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) and Prosper Portland are partnering to fix broken sidewalks, add street trees, and improve accessibility on N Lombard Street.
What’s happening now?
Construction is expected to begin in September 2020.
