The Powell-Division Transit and Development Project builds upon current and past community work and planning. Provided below are brief descriptions of related projects.
Division-Midway Neighborhood Street Plan, City of Portland
The street plan will define the primary active transportation routes and identify new opportunities for street system connections in the project area, which is centered on SE Division St from SE 112th to 148th Avenues, and roughly one mile north and south to SE Stark St and SE Holgate St.
Outer Powell Boulevard Design Plan, City of Portland
The plan identifies improvements and right-of-way width requirements that will allow Outer SE Powell Blvd to serve vehicle traffic movement while also improving safety, accessibility and the aesthetic environment for pedestrians, cyclists and transit riders over the next 20 years.
20's Bikeway Project, City of Portland
This project will plan, design and construct safety improvements to this important 9.1 mile north-south bicycle route. The route uses a variety of local residential streets and neighborhood collector streets between NE/SE 26th and 29th Aves, and runs from NE Lombard Stat the north end of the City to connect to the Springwater Corridor at SE 45th Ave at the south end of the City. The project is funded through a $2.4 million federal grant.
Eastside Service Enhancement, TriMet
TriMet’s Service Enhancement plans are multi-year efforts to plan for new and improved service in the region. The process will look at growth and engage local communities to determine where new service should be located and how to improve existing services for future growth. The Powell-Division Transit and Development Project will be coordinated with TriMet’s overall Eastside Service Enhancement plan.
East Metro Connections, Metro
This two-year effort analyzed present and future transportation challenges to prioritize solutions that reflect community values. Working within the cities of Gresham, Fairview, Troutdale,Wood Village as well as Multnomah County, the East Metro Connections Plan relied on collaboration across jurisdictional boundaries to advocate for the prosperity of the East Metro area.
High Capacity Transit System Plan, Metro
The plan calls for a focus on three transit corridors for investment in the near-term: Powell Boulevard, connecting Gresham to downtown Portland; Barbur Blvd/Highway 99, connecting downtown Portland to Tigard and possibly Sherwood; and the WES commuter rail corridor that connects Beaverton to Wilsonville, which could see WES service upgraded to all-day service with trains running at 15-minute intervals.
