Hawthorne Boulevard Project Extents

SE Hawthorne Pave and Paint is coordinating with other projects on SE Hawthorne Blvd, including Central City in Motion's Project 12 (SE Hawthorne / Madison Multimodal Improvements) and the Sunnyside South Sewer and Green Street Project.

 

What’s happening now?

Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) staff are currently conducting a technical evaluation of design alternatives. These alternatives are ones we’ve developed after hearing ideas and needs from the community in January-March 2020. We plan to share this evaluation through virtual opportunities in the upcoming months.


Read the Project Report, Part 1 for a summary about background information, existing conditions, and results from community input. It also describes the alternatives we are currently evaluating.

Project Background & Description:

SE Hawthorne Boulevard is due for maintenance paving. PBOT is scheduled to repave the street from 24th Ave to 50th Ave during summer of 2021. PBOT is looking at ways to leverage this opportunity to improve safety and make other changes to better serve people and businesses on SE Hawthorne Boulevard. PBOT’s Vison Zero team has identified SE Hawthorne Boulevard as one of 30 high crash corridors within the city.

  • What is the scope of this project?

    PBOT will repave and restripe SE Hawthorne Boulevard from SE 24th Ave to 50th Ave. The project will also reconstruct curb ramps that don’t meet Americans with Disability Act standards. As part of this project, PBOT will evaluate different striping options, including street crossings and lane markings. We will also identify further changes that PBOT may be able to make in a potential separate future project; these may include changes between SE 12th and 24th avenues.
  • What is the project timeline?

    PBOT is currently evaluating how COVID-19 may impact the project timeline. At this stage, we continue to work towards project construction in early Summer 2021.

Anticipated schedule for construction

  • Hawthorne is included as a Rose Lane Project proposed candidate pilot. 
    The SE Hawthorne Pave and Paint project will evaluate potential transit priority treatments in coordination with the Rose Lane Project. Rose Lane pilot transit priority treatments may be included as part of the SE Hawthorne Pave and Paint or with a separate project.
