Project Background and Description
This segment of NE Shaver Street was identified as an important connection for students attending Parkrose Middle School. Walking routes and challenging connections were highlighted by school communities during a Safe Routes to School outreach process held throughout 2017.
You can read more about the planning process and see a map of citywide project locations and routes at SafeRoutesProjects.com.
Planned project elements include:
- Build new sidewalk on the south side of NE Shaver Street between 115th Avenue and existing sidewalk at the western edge of Parkrose Middle School campus.
- Build four new ADA curb ramps at the NE and SE corner of the 115th Avenue intersection, and the SW and SE corners of the 116th Avenue intersection
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.
