Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has been sending Brentwood-Darlington lots of street improvements that mean more safety for our residents, especially our kids! Some projects include the 45th Avenue repave, a pedestrian crossing with refuge at SE 52nd and Knapp, left-turn guiders at SE 52nd and Flavel Street that slow traffic, a fully-marked crossing at SE 74th Avenue and Duke Street close to Woodmere Elementary, and (just outside B-D) a pedestrian crossing with refuge at SE46th at Henry Street (for students of Lewis Elementary). And now we have big white zebra stripes painted all around the intersection at SE 72nd and Duke Street. Thank you, PBOT!
This signature collection form is now closed. We hope to hear the results of the TGM grant application in Fall 2019.
Most of Brentwood-Darlington and parts of Mt. Scott-Arleta lack sidewalks, local commercial amenities, and adequate transit and street safety. The City of Portland’s Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is applying for a large state grant to engage the residents of our two neighborhoods in planning for improved transportation, housing, and economic opportunities. We invite you to support this application by providing your name and address. Add your email address if you’d like to receive our newsletter. Thank you!
Please note: Your information will be provided to Portland Bureau of Transportation as support for this grant only.

Couldn’t make it to our April 18th, 2019 meeting on Alternate Walkways with Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT)? Here is partial video of the meeting to discuss types of alternative walkways, especially along Safe Routes to School, in Brentwood-Darlington! Hosted by the Land Use and Transportation committee of Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association (BDNA) with special guests from Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT).
(We are aware the video quality is pretty bad, but felt the audio was important. We’re working on better technology to connect our community to advocacy opportunities. Are you great with video and want to volunteer with BDNA? Contact us at email@example.com!)
Wednesday, February 6th, 2019, board members Chelsea Powers and Stephenie Frederick testified at City Council on behalf of accepting the intergovernmental agreement for the Safe Routes to School sidewalk infill grant. The motion passed with full support of the commissioners! Our thanks to the hard working folks at Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) for keeping this project moving through the lengthy process. Look for your neighborhood representatives after the 4:12:00 mark in the official City Council video linked below. To view the presentation given by PBOT in detail, click here.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Testify in person at the February 6th Portland City Council meeting or send your written letters of testimony to the Council Clerk: Karla Moore-Love, 1221 SW 4th, Room 130, Portland, OR 97204
In 2016, neighbors and board members, some with small children in tow, testified before Metro. This key piece of advocacy secured over $5M for sidewalk infill and more in Brentwood-Darlington, thanks to a Regional Flexible Funds grant. Now, the intergovernmental agreement (IGA) for accepting that grant goes to City Council on the morning of Wednesday, February 6th. With the completion of the IGA, the funding finally starts flowing and Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) can start design engineering! Please show your support of the City accepting this grant money and let them know how ready we are for our new sidewalks!

Signal upgrades at Foster, Woodstock & Flavel
Project description: This project will install upgraded traffic signals and install sidewalk curb ramps that meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards at the intersections of SE 82nd Avenue and SE Foster Road, SE Woodstock Boulevard and SE Flavel Street.
Schedule: Construction began in April and will continue through the fall at each intersection.
Traffic impacts: Currently, travelers should expect daytime single lane closures from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays at each intersection and pedestrian and cyclist detours.
The majority of the work will be performed Monday-Friday, 6 a.m to 3 p.m. Some night work may be necessary. Expect single lane closures at these intersections over the entire construction period. Pedestrian and cyclist access will be available and identified at each intersection, including access for people with disabilities. Some TriMet bus stops may be temporarily closed or moved during this period. For updated service alerts, go to trimet.org/alerts.

Project description: This project will remove old driveways and replace them with regular sidewalks at 17 locations along 82nd Avenue (near SE Main Street, SE Wodtock Boulevard, SE Harney Street and SE Clatsop Street). This means fewer tripping hazards, as well as less confusion for drivers about which driveway to use.
Schedule: Construction began in May and is nearly complete.
Traffic impacts: No traffic impacts.
