KOIN 6 Local News Update on our $500k grant


This $500,000 grant will fund projects at Atkinson Elementary, Cesar Chavez K-8 (formerly Clarendon at Portsmouth), Harvey Scott K-8, Humboldt K-8, Lent K-8, Mill Park Elementary, Rieke Elementary and Russell Academy. These schools joined the Safe Routes program in the 2007/2008 school year.

The funded projects were recommended and prioritized by Safe Routes school teams at each school. Made up of school staff, parents, concerned neighbors, and, on occasion, students, the school teams worked with an engineer from Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) to identify safety challenges around their schools and prioritize improve­ments. This grant will fund improvements including pedestrian islands, curb ramps, speed bumps, street lighting, and raised crosswalks.

PBOT plans to begin construction on these projects this summer.
