Division Streetscape Project Update: April 30, 2014

Division Streetscape Project Update: April 30, 2014

Environmental Services and the Portland Bureau of Transportation are working together to improve the Division Street transportation corridor, repair and replace older sewers, add green infrastructure to manage stormwater and make sewers work more efficiently, and improve watershed health.

WHAT WE’VE HEARD FROM YOU

We’ve heard there have been some challenges for pedestrians crossing Division where corners and other crossing are under construction. We are currently developing some options for pedestrians to use in these circumstances. Crews are currently working on temporary ramps and the construction team is exploring ways to stagger work locations that would improve crossing during construction. Please be patient. Even as we work on solutions, there may still be locations where options are just not available.

CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE

Here is the estimated Division Streetscape construction schedule for the next three weeks. Construction will move from one site to another as crews complete work on each segment. Please be aware that this schedule is subject to change due to conditions underground, weather, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules and availability of materials.

NOTE: Construction crews are moving “Businesses Open During Construction” signs as they move from work site to work site. Sometimes it may take a day or two to get them completely moved, so please be patient.

Tabor to the River Program

This project is part of the Tabor to the River Program, which combines innovative stormwater management techniques with sewer repairs and improvements to stop basement flooding, manage stormwater more naturally, and to restore watershed health. The program area extends from Mt. Tabor to the Willamette River between SE Hawthorne and SE Powell boulevards.
