Our 2nd Street project in the heart of downtown Lake Oswego has come to an end, and we wanted to show a few photos of the finished product. With the slight narrowing of the curb to curb width of the street, the City transformed the street into a beautiful modern streetscape within the core of the downtown business district. Widened sidewalks, street lights, benches, driveways, street trees, and unique stormwater planters were all delicately knitted together by the design team to deliver a streetscape project that will benefit the surrounding business community while protecting the urban watershed.
This project included a number of significant design elements such as:
- Lined stormwater planters and curb extensions that will manage approximately 1,000,000 gallons of urban runoff while protecting adjacent commercial basements
- Structural soil tree wells that extend under sidewalk to provide and additional 10 cubic yards of additional root space per tree.
- Efficient inlet design to ensure stormwater capture on a steep street
- Unique low fencing around facilities patterned after fencing at City’s Millennium Park Plaza
