Plan will help improve local connectivity in East Portland neighborhoods
Next Thursday (March 13th, 2014) from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, the Portland Bureau of Transportation will host an open house to discuss the Division-Midway Neighborhood Street Plan. The open house will be held at the David Douglas High School North Cafeteria, 1001 SE 135th Ave.
PBOT is developing the Division-Midway Neighborhood Street Plan to help improve local street and pathway connectivity in several East Portland neighborhoods. The study area is bounded by SE 112th Ave, SE 148th Ave, SE Stark and SE Holgate and includes portions of the Hazelwood, Mill Park, Centennial and Powellhurst Gilbert neighborhoods.
The open house will include an overview presentation at 6 PM. Participants are welcome to drop by anytime between 5 and 7 PM to talk to staff and take a self-guided tour of several stations presenting the existing conditions, needs, opportunities and constraints, and proposed candidate connections to improve local street and pathway connectivity. PBOT staff also wants to hear from Portlanders about where better local streets and pathways are most needed in the area.
The open house will also include information about several other projects in the area:
- Powell-Division Transit and Development Project – Planning effort is underway to improve transit service and bring supporting development and investment to the corridor.
- TriMet East Portland Transit Service Enhancement Plan - Planning effort is underway.
- East Portland Access to Transit Project – Project is in design to build pedestrian and bicycle improvements.
