Crossing Improvements

RFB at 142nd and Division

Fixing our Streets:  Crossing ImprovementsIntersections that are well designed, managed and maintained have an important role to play in a safe and efficient transportation system. It is at intersections that the various users of Portland’s streets come together and that means the potential for conflict and crashes is higher than on other parts of our network.

Given the importance of crossings, the Fixing our Streets program will make over $3.3 million in investments to improve key intersections. These investments will fund a range of safety and traffic upgrades, including better street lighting, rapid flashing safety beacons, enhanced signage and striping and better infrastructure like ramps and pedestrian islands.

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