The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has submitted a grant application to the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for safety improvements to Foster Road:
“The SE Foster Road Safety and Sidewalk Enhancement Project will design and construct elements of the Foster Road Transportation and Streetscape Plan (adopted in 2003 and updated in 2013) along SE Foster Road between SE 50th Ave and SE 90th Ave. It will primarily focus on pedestrian and bicycle crossing safety and access to transit, followed by streetscape improvements in the priority Districts identified in the Plan. Improvements will include:• Pedestrian safety crossing improvements along the corridor • Bus Stop Improvements. (e.g. seating, shelters, ADA landing pads) at multiple locations along the corridor, to be determined in coordination with TriMet • Signal synchronization equipment upgrades • Bike parking, facilities and crossing improvements along SE Foster.”
