SW Multnomah Blvd Pedestrian/Bicycle Improvement Project Open House

Thursday, February 17, 2011 - drop-in between 6:30 - 8:30 pm

Multnomah Center auditorium (7688 SW Capitol Hwy)

How would you improve pedestrian and bicycle conditions on Multnomah Blvd?

Please join staff from the Portland Bureau of Transportation and Bureau of Environmental Services to learn more about a project to provide sidewalks, stormwater management, and improved bicycle facilities on SW Multnomah Blvd between 21st and 31st Ave.
This project is a great opportunity to improve pedestrian connections between SW Barbur Blvd and Multnomah Village, while also improving safety for both pedestrians and bicycles. Current funding will allow for improvements on the north side of Multnomah Blvd between SW 21st and 31st Ave. in conjunction with the Bureau of Environmental Services sewer main project. The project also intends to develop a design concept for the entire corridor up through Multnomah Village to SW 40th Ave for future construction phases. The open house will present background information and design options for public review and comment.
