SE 45th Ave Paving Update

Update on the SE 45th Avenue Repaving and Restriping project from Scott Cohen at Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT): 

Repaving is scheduled to begin on September 13th, 2019. The project is scheduled for 14 days of work, however some additional signage and striping work may continue after the paving. The work and schedule are weather dependent.

The concept for the restriping has changed based on community feedback and updates to our engineering guidelines on street designs. Please visit the website to see latest design.

The goals of the project remain the same:

  • A safer SE 45th for all users of the street.
  • Designing the street for future pedestrian facilities, including crosswalks, and adding on-street connections where sidewalk is missing.
  • Improving bicycle infrastructure by adding more space to the existing bike lanes.
  • Creating a street design that provides more space for people and reflects the neighborhood character of the corridor.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Scott Cohen, Neighborhood Greenways and Bikeway Missing Links Coordinator, directly with questions about the project.
