Portland’s Bureau of Transportation, Bureau of Environmental Services, and Water Bureau are working in coordination on street, stormwater, water main, and fire suppression improvements on SW Capitol Highway. This project will improve safety and mobility for all modes of travel while improving stormwater management, protecting water quality in local streams, and updating water supply infrastructure to meet modern demands.Working together ensures successful outcomes—including reduced costs, improved efficiency, and enhanced service delivery to the Portland community.


The SW Capitol Highway: Multnomah Village to West Portland project will provide sidewalks, bike lanes, stormwater management facilities and water system upgrades along SW Capitol Highway between SW Garden Home and SW Taylors Ferry Roads.

Project Schedule
The project is currently in design engineering. Further design refinements are expected over the remainder of 2019 in preparation for construction. Construction is expected to begin in January 2020 and last approximately 18 months. More information on construction will become available as project design and contractor procurement progresses.

Total Project Budget
This joint PBOT-BES-PWB project is funded through the Fixing Our Streets city gas tax, Transportation System Development Charges (TSDCs), Oregon Lottery-backed bonds, Bureau of Environmental Services funds, and Water Bureau funds. Fixing Our Streets will contribute roughly $3,310,000 of the total anticipated budget of $18-26 million. Cost estimates will continue to be refined as design advances.
