Division Streetscape Project Update: August 28, 2014

Division Streetscape Project Update: August 28, 2014

Environmental Services and the Portland Bureau of Transportation are working together to improve the Division Street transportation corridor, repair and replace older sewers, add green infrastructure to manage stormwater and make sewers work more efficiently, and improve watershed health.

Attention Hosford Middle School Parents and Students

Construction crews will be paving during the first week of school. This process involves large equipment and hot asphalt. Please be aware of the pedestrian detours that will be in place and obey the flaggers when crossing SE Division between SE 26th and SE 34th avenues. This process will last the entire first week of school and possibly into the next week.

Grinding and Paving Continues on Division

  • 26th-34th avenues – Scheduled the week of August 25.
  • 34th Avenue-Cesar Chavez Boulevard – Tentatively scheduled the week of September 8.
  • Grinding and paving will occur during regular work hours, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, but the contractor may schedule work during the same hours on Saturday.
  • Get more information at
  • Go to for information about TriMet line #4.


Revised Detour

During grinding and paving on SE Division Street, west bound traffic will use Division. East bound traffic will be detoured to SE Powell Boulevard at SE 26th Avenue. The city modified the original detour plan to redirect motor vehicle traffic to SE Powell Boulevard in order to avoid conflicts with pedestrians and cyclists using the Clinton Neighborhood Greenway. The Portland Police Bureau has agreed to provide additional traffic enforcement on SE Clinton during the detour period.

Construction Schedule

Below is the estimated Division Streetscape construction schedule for the next three weeks. Construction will move from one site to another as crews complete work on each segment. Please be aware that this schedule is subject to change due to conditions underground, weather, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules and availability of materials.

  • 31st Avenue and Division, southeast corner – form and pour ADA corner
