Here’s some good news for anyone that rides SE 9th Avenue in Sellwood.
The old trolley tracks on SE 9th between Linn and Marion Streets (see image below) are being removed by PDOT.
Tipster Paul says, “That’s good news for Sellwood cyclists. Those old trolley tracks were a wheel trap…you really had to zig-zag to avoid them.”
Paul adds that according to a notice he received in the mail, crews will tear up the existing pavement and apply a new layer of asphalt. The project is set to take three weeks and should be finished by the first week in November.
