Work on the reconstruction of SW Moody Ave. began in January of 2011. Over the past 21 months, crews have worked to rebuild the street with streetcar tracks, large sidewalks, a two-way cycle track, and track crossings for the Portland-Milwaukie light rail line. Construction on the project reached 'substantial completion' this past March, on-budget and nearly three months ahead of schedule. The track crossings for MAX are currently under construction, with the new light rail line scheduled to open in 2015. The new street is also 14 feet higher than the old one, making it less susceptible to damage in the event of a future Willamette River flood. The project was funded by a $23.3 million grant from the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act as well as local and state funding.
