Environmental Services has completed construction on two green street planters that will collect stormwater runoff from SE Foster Road that currently flows untreated directly into Johnson Creek. The project will protect public health and water quality in Johnson Creek. The green street planters will be without plants until they are planted in June.
The Portland Bureau of Transportation has constructed a sidewalk near the new green street on the south side of Foster Road to connect with the existing sidewalk. The sidewalk improvements will provide safe pedestrian access along that section of SE Foster Road.
