'Springwater Connector Neighborhood Greenway' project progresses
A $2 million Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) project designed to connect "Neighborhood Greenways" continues, in the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood – where it's intended to improve its connection with the Springwater Corridor Trail.
COVID-19 coronavirus concerns and the choking August wildfire smoke slowed the "Springwater Connector Neighborhood Greenway" project, but it certainly didn't stop it.
"The sidewalk on S.E. 75th Place has been constructed, and the corner ramps at 78th Avenue are complete," PBOT Communications Coordinator Hannah Schafer told THE BEE.
Neighbors driving along S.E. Flavel Street noticed construction in progress on the east edge of Flavel Park late in 2020, as construction crews laid out the area to be paved, and put down surface treatment along the pathway.
"We are waiting for a dry spell to pave the Flavel Park path and the 75th Place roadway," Schafer explained.
After the paving has been completed, they'll proceed to install other amenities along the path, including lighting, she said.
