Would you walk in your neighborhood if there was a safe and accessible route?
(January 23, 2015) If you live, work, go to school or play in the neighborhoods near Barbur Boulevard situated between Capitol Highway and Taylors Ferry Road then you are invited to attend the Tryon-Stephens Headwaters Neighborhood Street Plan Open House. Tell us where better local streets and pathways are needed and why. We want to hear what you would like to see improved and what should be preserved.
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) and the Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) are working together on the Tryon-Stephens Headwaters Neighborhood Street Plan. The objective of the street plan is to establish a more connected local street and pathway network and to improve stormwater management systems within the area.
This area has steep slopes, soil that does a poor job of absorbing rain and sensitive natural resources. All these factors require an integrated approach to street and stormwater improvements. In addition to coordinating PBOT and BES investments in the project area and aligning transportation and stormwater system needs with community priorities, the Tryon-Stephens Headwater Neighborhood Street Plan will:
- Create a strategy to improve local street connectivity and access to important neighborhood destinations, and
- Define the primary walking and bicycle networks in the area
