It’s hard to believe we last posted on the Division Streetscape and Tabor to the River projects over eight months ago.
Since then, crews have been busy on SE Division Street, constructing the 64 green street facilities, repairing and improving old sewers, and making transportation improvements. The Division Streetscape Project is a combined effort between Environmental Services and Portland Bureau of Transportation.
Environmental Services is also building 13 more green street facilities nearby, at SE Ivon and 41st and near SE Madison and 57th. In addition, two older facilities at SE Grant and 29th are being retrofitted. Learn more about that project here.
Thanks to everyone who lives, works, and travels through the Division Streetscape area for your continued patience with this major construction! A more safe and beautiful street with modern sewer and stormwater infrastructure will be the result.
All of these projects are part of the part of the Tabor to the River Program. When the Division Street and Ivon-Madison green street facilities are complete, there will be a total of 215 completed green streets in the Tabor to the River area, keeping millions of gallons of stormwater runoff out of sewer pipes and adding nature to the busy Division Street corridor.
What’s next for Tabor to the River? There are more green streets in design now for the Brooklyn neighborhood (the Lower Powell Sewer and Green Street Project). The project will replace and repair about 4,000 feet of pipe, construct about 20 green street facilities to keep stormwater out of sewers, and plant trees to absorb rain and reduce runoff.
