---------------------
23rd Avenue Reconstruction Project - NW
Provides reconstruction between the existing curbs will allow for a 20-plus year life span of the pavement.

    Why This Project?
NW 23rd Avenue needs to be repaired and repaved. The street shows severe cracking, rutting and potholes. In places, the asphalt has worn down enough to expose the old streetcar tracks and bricks.
    The roadway improvements are necessary to ensure access and maintain the vitality of the neighborhood. Reconstruction between the existing curbs will allow for a 20-plus year life span of the pavement.
    What Work Will Be Done?

The project extends from the West Burnside intersection north to NW Lovejoy Street. The project will include excavating the existing roadway, reconstructing the base, and repaving the surface.

The project will also install curb ramps on corners where they are needed and rebuild existing ones to meet new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. Crossing improvements with new curb extensions are planned at NW Westover and at NW Johnson. The existing pedestrian island at W Burnside will be rebuilt to meet new ADA standards.

How Much Will The Project Cost?

The project is estimated to cost $3.245 million. The project budget totals $3.029 million which is $216,000 under the total estimated cost. The funding includes $1.641 million of Federal transportation funds and $1.388 million in Portland General Transportation Revenues (GTR)
 
 
 
 

30th and Barbur Traffic Signal - SW

92nd Avenue, Powell to Holgate - SE

Funding -

The estimated total project cost (design engineering, construction, and contingency) is $3.5 million.

The project has received a $1 million grant from the Oregon Dept of Transportation's Transportation Enhancement Program.  The balance of the project cost comes from the Lents Urban Renewal District.
 

SE 92nd Ave serves as an important collector street connection to the Lents Town Center for all modes of travels.  However, due to the lack of sidewalks, street trees, bicycle facilities, and stormwater drainagethe section between SE Powell and Holgate Blvd currently does not have most of the features of a safe and efficient City standard street.

In 2004, The Lents Urban Renewal Advisory Committee endorsed the use of urban renewal funds to improve this section of 92nd Ave to support the revitalization goals of the Lents Town Center Urban Renewal District.  A project development process was initiated in the summer of '04 to work with the community and local residents on the street to define a preferred design alternative.  A preferred alternative was selected and endorsed by the Lents Urban Renewal Advisory Committee in the fall of '04 to proceed to construction.
 

When completed in 2006, the project will reconstruct the entire street to provide a new roadbed, paving, sidewalks, on-street parking, bicycle lanes and 'green street' stormwater drainage facilities between approximately 91st Place near Powell Blvd and Holgate Blvd.  In addition, an existing water main will be relocated and upgraded.  Completion of sidewalk improvements near Powell Blvd will occur within the following 2-3 years as part of Tri-Met's I-205 Light Rail Project improvements to the Powell Park and Ride Station.
 
 
 

102nd Avenue Street Improvement Project
