Fixing our Streets:  Paving

Well maintained streets are vital to getting Portlanders from place to place easily, safely and sustainably. PBOT is responsible for maintaining over 4800 miles of city streets. 60% of those streets are neighborhood streets. The rest are busy streets that Portlanders use daily to get to work and school, that our businesses use to move freight and get their goods to market, and that buses use to get transit riders to their destinations.

PBOT focuses our paving work on keeping streets from falling into poor or very poor condition. This approach saves Portland money because the worse a street’s condition, the more expensive it is to fix.

The Fixing our Streets paving projects that are detailed here will not completely meet all of Portland’s street maintenance needs. But they are a significant step in the right direction; they will help Portland close the gap and get more streets into the condition that Portlanders expect.

Scoping for these projects is underway. Check back soon for additional details.
