High Crash Corridors

High Crash Corridor

Fixing our Streets:  Vision ZeroAs a Vision Zero city, Portland is committed to eliminating fatalities and serious injuries on our streets. An ambitious goal like this demands a comprehensive strategy that includes better street engineering, robust education initiatives and effective enforcement actions.

Such an approach is especially important on Portland’s High Crash Network. These are the streets where a disproportionate number of fatalities and serious injuries occur. Nearly half of the deadly and serious crashes occur on only seven percent of Portland streets.

The Fixing our Streets High Crash Corridor projects are focused on improving safety on some of our city’s most dangerous streets. The nearly four million dollars in investment will fund engineering solutions to reduce speed, improved street lighting to make it easier for people walking, driving and biking to see each other and enhanced infrastructure such as pedestrian refuge islands to improve safety.

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