SW Moody Avenue Reconstruction
In the South Waterfront district, the TIGER Grant will help construct approximately 3,200 linear feet of SW Moody Avenue from approximately SW River Parkway to SW Gibbs Street. SW Moody Avenue will include three traffic lanes, dual streetcar tracks, and pedestrian and bicycle facilities. The roadway will be elevated with an additional 14 feet of fill, allowing redevelopers of adjacent brownfields to offer “tuck under parking” without disturbing capped contaminated areas. The elevated street also integrates mixed-use developments with street-level transit facilities, encouraging transit ridership and reducing auto trips.
SW Moody Avenue is the main access point to the district. The new construction will increase roadway capacity and introduce urban development standards such as fiber optic, sewer, stormwater and water infrastructure to support future development. Rendering large parcels adjacent to SW Moody Avenue developable and incorporating additional transit modes along SW Moody Avenue will be vital to the economic success of the South Waterfront district. This investment in roadway and streetcar facilities also supports the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail extension and streetcar extensions including the Close the Loop (connecting eastside and westside streetcar lines) and the Portland to Lake Oswego lines.
