‘Waterloo’: Downtown public restrooms scheduled to come online in November

Published in Community Impact Newspaper

Dubbed the “Waterloo,” a pair of new, stainless steel, solar-paneled public restrooms could be ready for use by Nov. 8, according to the city’s public works department, capping off what will be a nearly four-year project to get the 24-hour access restrooms downtown.

The restrooms will locate at the corner of 4th and Trinity streets and outside the current municipal court at 700 E. Seventh St. A third facility, which is on hold until further funding is available, will get placed in the area of the 500 block of Brazos Street.

The Oregon-based company Madden Fabrication, will design the new single-occupancy restrooms after their Portland Loo public restroom system. The facilities will include solar panels to power the LED lights, angled slats to allow for airflow and provide enough width for wheel chair access all within a stainless steel design to block graffiti and allow for easy cleanup.
