Division Street Goes Green!

0 Comments

Watch for construction to start this spring on the Division Streetscape Project.  The project, a partnership between Environmental Services and the Portland Bureau of Transportation, includes significant streetscape, stormwater management and sewer system improvements on SE Division from SE 11th Avenue to SE Cesar Chavez Boulevard. 

In addition to transportation improvements, the project includes construction of 55 green street facilities and planting 124 new street trees.  This new green infrastructure will manage stormwater runoff from streets and improve watershed health. The project will also replace over 4,900 feet of sewer pipe in poor condition and replace 32 manholes, which will help relieve sewer backups and increase sewer system reliability as part of the Tabor to the River Program.  The Division Streetscape Project is the result of the vision and participation of community members throughout the planning and design process, and a great example of using green infrastructure to provide multiple benefits.  The city is in the process of hiring a contractor now, and then construction will take about 18 months to complete.
