Environmental Services is constructing a green street and planting street trees on SW Capitol Highway in Multnomah Village between SW 35th and SW 36th avenues (see map below). Construction began in March 2013 and will be complete in June 2013.
Capitol Highway is an important parking area for Multnomah Village and a major neighborhood thoroughfare. When it rains, stormwater runoff from this high-use area washes pollutants from the highway into nearby Vermont Creek. New street trees will absorb rain to reduce runoff and the green street facility will collect and treat stormwater to protect water quality and enhance the neighborhood.
The project includes widening sidewalks and reconfiguring parking on both sides of SW Capitol to benefit pedestrians and cyclists.
Additional parking is available during construction at the Multnomah Arts Center Lower West Lot.
