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 will transform 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 will support and enhance the growing mix of businesses and residences in the neighborhood.
Among the changes coming to SE Foster Road by Fall 2018:
Funding for the $9 million Foster Road Project comes from the Fixing our Streets Program, the Lents Town Center Urban Renewal District, Portland Transportation System Development Charges and a federal grant.
