SE Clay Green Street Project

Environmental Services completed construction on the SE Clay Green Street Project in winter 2014. The city will add plants to the green streets in spring and fall 2014. The project removes stormwater from the city sewer system and gives local neighborhoods safer access to the Willamette River.

Clay Green Street Project Highlights

  • 24 green street planters along SE Clay Street from Water Avenue to 12th Avenue collect an average of two million gallons of stormwater annually
  • Worked with the community on neighborhood, business, freight, pedestrian, bicycle and environmental objectives
  • Creates a design theme that acknowledges the character and history of area
  • Includes public art and informational signage
