Throughout 2018 and 2019, the Central Business District will be the site of multiple projects to repair and replace aging sewers, bridge structures, streets, and other infrastructure. Projects with long-term benefits will cause short-term disruptions to residents, businesses and visitors. Environmental Services is coordinating with multiple agencies to schedule and complete construction, minimize disruptions, and help people get to where they are going. For information about other projects that will affect travel in and around the Central Business District, visit www.MovePDX.net.
If you have other suggestions on outreach methods, please let us know. We are committed to working with residents, businesses and local organizations to provide communications that meet their needs.
