PDC Town Hall – share your priorities for Foster Rd

How should the Foster Corridor be improved?

The Portland Development Commission (PDC) and the Foster-Lents Integration Partnership (FLIP) have opened “PDC Town Hall,” an online forum where you can spend an imaginary $500 among these ten scenarios and tell us where you think we should focus these investments.  Visit PDC Town Hall, read what others are saying and then post your own priorities here: http://www.pdc.us/our-work/urban-renewal-areas/lents/current-projects/flip/flip-forum.aspx.

PBOT requests $2.24 million for Foster Rd safety improvements

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.”
