We do lots of planning and write plenty of grants, so don't mind us if we get excited when all that work comes to fruition. That's right, we're building stuff! Well, not us really, more our contractor. But they're doing a great job - check it out...
New Sidewalk at Faubion School in NE Portland
The beginnings of a new crosswalk near Chief Joseph Elementary in N. Portland
Installation of a green curb extension near Chapman Elementary in NW Portland.
This work is all part of a $500,000 grant we got from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) for Safe Routes infrastructure projects. We're also constructing projects at Capitol Hill Elementary (SW), Forest Park Elementary (NW), Gilbert Heights (E. PDX), Kelly Elementary (E. PDX), Rosa Parks Elementary (N. PDX), Sacramento Elementary (E. PDX), and Sunnyside School (SE). The projects at each school were identified by a team of school and community members in conjunction with one of our traffic engineers. All the work is scheduled to be complete by the end of January.
