Pacific Avenue Streetscape Project


The Pacific Avenue Streetscape project included installation of right-of-way improvements in a ten block area on Pacific Avenue from South 7th to South 17th streets. Key components were innovative stormwater design and pedestrian, bicycle, public transit and vehicle complete streets concepts. Improvements included new and upgraded sidewalks, new curbs and curb ramps, landscaping, public art, street furnishings, historic streetlights and roadway repaving. A new Eurocobble intersection at South 8th Street and a crisscross overhead lighting system from South 7th to South 9th streets create a new event space. Lastly, fourteen rain gardens now treat stormwater prior to it entering the Thea Foss Waterway below downtown.

Project Update - May 8, 2014

Final Pavement Striping - May 12 and May 13

With the pavement modifications now complete at South 7th Street, the contractor will be completing final striping activities at South 7th Street (crosswalks and stop bars), South 9th Street (ADA parking stall), South 11th Street (stop bars), and South 14th Street (I-705 off-ramp related striping) on Monday and Tuesday, May 12 and 13, 2014, pending weather.  Traffic will be temporarily impacted at these locations while the work is in progress.


Thank you for your patience and support as the final weather-dependent construction tasks are completed.
