In 2011, former Mayor Sam Adams committed $16 Million for sidewalk infill on arterial streets in Southwest and East Portland. Learn more below about the sidewalk projects in both areas that will be advanced to design and construction in 2012 and 2013.
East Portland Sidewalk Construction
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) will build over 7 miles of priority sidewalk infill projects on several arterial streets and school routes in East Portland (generally east of I-205). See the able below for details. The sidewalk projects to be built were identified through the East Portland in Motion (EPIM) effort, a 5-year implementation strategy for active transportation.
