SW Stephenson and SW Hamilton Drainage and Road Shoulder Improvements

The Fanno and Tryon Creeks Watershed Management Plan (2005) identified roadside ditch improvements as an important management tool to help protect southwest streams, improve roadside drainage, and address recurring maintenance problems. Environmental Services, the Portland Bureau of Transportation and community members selected ditches along SW Stephenson and SW Hamilton streets for improvement.The city completed work on Maplewood, Garden Home and other roads in 2012.
