Street Improvements + Paving

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) manages a wide array of projects that improve Portland's streets. Planning for these projects may be done years in advance for major projects or spur-of-the-moment for emergencies and minor repairs. Regardless, PBOT is constantly working to keep our streets in the best condition possible with the local funds we have and the state and national funds we seek.  

Below is a table of significant projects that are currently funded and scheduled. For a list of unfunded projects for Portland, visit the Transportation System Plan. We are not including minor repairs because there are too many done every day to efficiently record in a table.
