Portland’s Bureau of Transportation, Bureau of Environmental Services, and Water Bureau are working in coordination on street, stormwater, water main, and fire suppression improvements on SW Capitol Highway. This project will improve safety and mobility for all modes of travel while improving stormwater management, protecting water quality in local streams, and updating water supply infrastructure to meet modern demands.Working together ensures successful outcomes—including reduced costs, improved efficiency, and enhanced service delivery to the Portland community.
If you have a question about the road improvements, stormwater facilities, or water upgrades, or you would like to learn more about what is happening near your property, please join us for “office hours” this October. Members of the project team will be available for in-depth consultation on the dates listed below. We encourage you to sign up for a specific time in advance, but you should also feel free to drop in.
The Capitol Highway: Multnomah Village to West Portland project will provide pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure and stormwater management facilities along SW Capitol Highway between SW Garden Home and SW Taylors Ferry roads. Design of the transportation and stormwater elements will be integrated.
The project is currently in preliminary design. Further design refinements are expected over the next year in preparation for construction. Construction is expected to begin in 2019 and last approximately one year. More information will become available as project design progresses.
