SE 136th Paving + Sidewalks to Opportunity

street view


The aim of the SE 136th Paving and Sidewalks to Opportunity project is to improve neighbors’ connections to community amenities in the Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhood and surrounding areas.

This project combines 4 million dollars of investments from Fixing Our Streets to repave 136th and 2.7 million dollars of TSDCs to build new sidewalks and curb ramps.  TSDCs are an abbreviation for "Transportation System Development Charges," these are fees that the City collects from developers to offset the cost of new construction and to improve the City's transportation system.

Destinations in this area that will notice improved multimodal access as a result of this project include: Powell butte nature park, Gilbert Hydro Park, Gilbert Primary Park, Leach Botanical Garden, Zenger Farm, Lincoln City Park, Lincoln Park Elementary School, Gilbert Heights City Park, Kingsley D. Bundy Park, and Gilbert Heights Elementary School. 

Further, because 136th is served by TriMet routes 17 & 10, improvements and crossings will help residents more safety access transit.
