SWCR's Blood Drive March 27th

Are you looking to make a stranger’s lucky day this March? Here’s the perfect way: donate blood at SWCR’s Blood Drive with Bloodworks Northwest. On Wednesday March 27th from 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm South Waterfront Community Relations is partnering with Bloodworks Northwest again to host another blood drive in the South Waterfront. The Bloodworks Bloodmobile will be located at SW Bonds and SW Gaines (right in front of Subway across from Elizabeth Caruthers Park).

Lair Hill Traffic Access Management Project

PBOT held it's first public open house event for the community to learn more about the project and provide public comment. Many Lair Hill residents attended where questions were answered and comments provided by PBOT representatives.  

The purpose of this project is to mitigate the impacts of non-local cut-through traffic accessing the Ross Island Bridge on neighborhood livability.  Traffic congestion related to commuter traffic trying to access the Ross Island Bridge creates incentives for that traffic to use local streets adjacent to the bridge as cut-through routes.  The project proposes testing targeted traffic management changes to the local street network to discourage use of local streets. There are three main components to the regulation of the local street network immediately south of the Ross Island Bridge proposed for testing. 

Please follow this link to the official PBOT webpage where you can find more detailed explanation of the project and the slides used for the Open House presentation:  https://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/78510
