The Hawthorne Pave and Paint Project was described in the August edition of The Southeast Examiner. 

Three alternatives were identified which would ultimately result in changes to Hawthorne Blvd.’s lane configurations, on street parking and pedestrian/bicycle amenities from SE 20th Ave. to SE 49th Ave. 

In September 2020, Portland Bureau of Transportation (PDOT) published an alternatives evaluation based on public input and City staff analyses. The final staff proposal recommendation was expected by November but that did not happen.  

Hannah Schafer, Project Coordinator, at PBOT commented on the status of the project. saying, “Our second round of outreach has stretched a bit longer than originally anticipated. We are now analyzing the input we gathered and are following up on some of the suggestions and questions from these conversations. 

“At this point, we are anticipating that we will provide an update on our direction in January/February 2021, following the holiday season.”

Schafer further encouraged those interested to sign up for project updates.
