PORTLAND, Ore.– Ask anyone who lives in a part of Southeast Portland that doesn’t have sidewalks or has to dodge a pothole every 2 or 3 feet, and they will tell you how important it is to get those things fixed.
The Portland Bureau of Transportation has just announced an $11 Million fix.
The project is formally called the East Portland Access to Employment and Education Project. It will build sidewalks, street crossings, bike lanes, paved paths and other safety improvements in multiple neighborhoods of East Portland.
It will provide workers and families of all incomes access to jobs, businesses, and education opportunities.
