8th Street & Market Street Transit Boarding Island

Service Affected
Neighborhoods Affected
Route(s) Affected

A new transit boarding island is coming soon to 8th Street between Market Street and Stevenson Street. In coordination with a sewer upgrade effort, construction will begin in late-September and will last until late-November. 

The transit boarding island will provide more space and reliability for transit passengers, and a protected space for bicyclists between the sidewalk and boarding island.

Traffic/Transit Impact

  • Please follow posted signage to locate the closest 19 Polk bus stop during construction.
  • At times, there may be temporary lane closures as crews perform work resulting in possible travel delays. Please plan to allow for extra travel time during construction due to possible delays.
  • Traffic will be routed around construction activity as necessary, but will not be detoured. Pedestrian pathways and access to driveways and commercial/residential buildings will be maintained at all times.

You can find additional information related to Phase I of the 7th and 8th Streets Safety Projects at Phase II of the 8th Street Safety Project – extending the parking protected bikeway and other safety upgrades from Harrison Street to Townsend Street on 8th Street – is currently moving forward. Be on the lookout for an update about Phase II in the coming weeks.
