Division Streetscape Project Update

From the City of Portland:

Environmental Services and the Bureau of Transportation are working together to improve a deficient transportation corridor, make the sewer system more reliable and add green infrastructure to treat stormwater and make sewers work more efficiently, and improve watershed health.

During design and through construction we have heard concerns from businesses along SE Division Street about how construction might impact their holiday business. To address this concern, there will be a limited holiday construction moratorium in place for the Division Streetscape Project. The moratorium will apply only to Division Streetscape Project work. Private construction may still continue.

Beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, November 22 and running through Wednesday, January 1, travel lanes, parking lanes and sidewalks will be open on Division from 11th Avenue to 13th Avenue, from 19th Avenue to 22nd Avenue, and from 30th Avenue to Cesar Chavez Boulevard.

Construction will continue in other areas along SE Division and on side streets. The city and the project contractor will continue to work with local neighbors and businesses to maintain access to properties and keep areas clean and safe throughout the holiday season.

Below is the estimated Division Streetscape construction schedule for the next two weeks. Construction will move from one site to another as work on each segment is completed. Please be aware that this schedule is subject to change due to a variety of factors, including conditions underground, weather, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules and availability of materials.

Install lateral sewer connections and inlets from 28th Place to 32nd Avenue
Pour curb, sidewalk and ADA ramps at 27th and Clinton
Prep and pour curb, sidewalk and driveway on the north side of Division near 20th Avenue
Excavate and pour green street facilities along north side of Division between 19th and 20th avenues

Tabor to the River Program
This project is part of the Tabor to the River Program, which combines innovative stormwater management techniques with sewer repairs and improvements to stop basement flooding, manage stormwater more naturally, and to restore watershed health. The program area extends from Mt. Tabor to the Willamette River between SE Hawthorne and SE Powell boulevards.
