Construction

This page provides information on construction activities for the Division Transit Project, including current impacts. Construction work occurs weekdays, unless otherwise noted.

The project will conduct three phases of construction: utility relocation; civil work; shelter and amenity installation. Construction includes stations, adjacent crossings and modifications at major intersections along the route.

 

TriMet and the Portland Bureau of Transportation are working together to make Division Street safer for all users. Learn more about the projects’ protected bike lanes, raised center medians, street lighting and other improvements.
