This project is currently in design with construction expected to begin during late summer/early fall 2023.
Project Background and Description
This segment of N Willis Blvd was identified as an important connection for students and families attending César Chávez K-8 School in the Roosevelt cluster of Portland Public Schools (PPS) District. Walking routes and challenging connections were highlighted by school communities during a Safe Routes to School outreach process held throughout 2017.

The Fixing Our Streets 10-cent citywide gas tax was approved by voters in May 2016 and again in May 2020. Safe Routes to School was allocated funding by Fixing Our Streets for school access improvements across Portland.
