Better Naito Improvement
DEA is providing project management and civil, structural, and traffic engineering services for the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s (PBOT) development of a two way cycle track through the City’s downtown core, from SW Harrison Street to the Steele Bridge. The project focuses on creating safe, functional pedestrian and bike facilities, applying an “all ages and abilities” design philosophy. This approach includes incorporating innovative design features like protected intersections to provide more separation between pedestrian, bike, and auto traffic.
DEA’s work on the project is divided into two separate contracts, with the SW Naito Improvement Project (extending from SW Harrison St to the Hawthorne Bridge) funded through PBOT’s Fixing Our Streets program and the Better Naito Forever project (extending from the Hawthorne Bridge to the Steele Bridge) funded through the Central City in Motion program.
