The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) and TriMet recently completed the SW Alder Street Rose Lane Project, with the goal of improving speed and reliability for transit riders. The project improved SW Alder Street between SW 18th and 2nd Avenues. The project supported a route change to TriMet Line 15 from SW Salmon Street to SW Alder Street, added asphalt transit platforms and shelters at new bus stops, and provided a bus and bike lane between SW 4th and 2nd avenues.
