Construction on Foster Road is done and we’ve lined up community and PBOT-hosted events to get you out and about. Enter to win one of four Visa gift cards by collecting a secret letter at each event you attend.
While not required, we hope that you can try walking, rolling, biking, or riding transit to these events! We've created a map that highlights the walking, biking, and transit facilities in the area.
The project extends from SE 50th Avenue to the western edge of the Lents Town Center at SE 90th Avenue. The changes to the street and urban design transformed Foster Road from a high speed, auto-oriented corridor into a more balanced streetscape that is safer and more accessible for people walking, biking, taking transit and driving. Additionally, the new design supports and enhances the growing mix of businesses and residences in the neighborhood.
Among the improvements on SE Foster Road:
Funding for the $9 million Foster Road Project came from the Fixing our Streets Program, the Lents Town Center Urban Renewal District, Portland Transportation System Development Charges and a federal grant.
