SW Naito Parkway (I-405 to Jefferson)

SW Naito

The project includes grinding and paving SW Naito Pkwy between I-405 and SW Lincoln and full road reconstruction on SW Naito between SW Harrison and SW Jefferson.

Construction Schedule: 

  • Work begins July 2020 and is expected to run through August of 2021
  • Residents and nearby businesses can expect construction noise.
  • People travelling on SW Naito can expect significant delays.

This project is exploring a number of additional features including, a two-way separated off-street path between SW Harrison and SW Clay Street and incorporating an on-street, two-way bike facility between SW Clay and SW Jefferson. A full pedestrian signal at SW Jefferson with connections to Tom McCall Waterfront Park and a two-way on-street bike lane connection north of Jefferson are possible, as well. A new traffic signal on the Hawthorne Bridge to improve traffic operations for vehicles approaching from SW Naito Parkway is also a potential project element. 

All of these improvements will increase safety and efficiency while decreasing conflicts between road users. Fixing Our Streets funds are also leveraging additional Oregon Department of Transportation funding. Construction is expected to start in early 2020.

Project Budget: $1,600,000 from Fixing our Streets and other funding from Transportation Development charges and other sources
