SE Hawthorne / Madison Multimodal Improvements

What’s happening now?

The project team is currently refining concepts to 15% design plans and preparing for open houses in February 2020.

Project description and background

Hawthorne and Madison are critical east/west connections for the Central Eastside due to their connections to the Hawthorne Bridge. This project will upgrade transit stops, bike lanes, and pedestrian crossings on SE Hawthorne and Madison streets. A bus and turn (BAT) lane is also under consideration on Hawthorne. This project will benefit the 17,461 people who ride Line 2, 10 and 14 into and out of the central city. The project also benefits people who walk and bike along the corridor.

View the 2018 conceptual design here. Note this conceptual design is currently being refined and a 15% design plan will be available for public review in early 2020.

Current Status: Design

Construction: Fall 2020
