Marine Drive is part of the High Crash Network for people driving.

Street safety improvements on N/NE Marine Drive Timing
1900 block to 4,000’ east of 33rd: centerline rumble strips* Complete
33rd, TBD: speed safety cameras 2017
122nd: new traffic signal. Due to potential difficulties associated with drilling on the levy, the construction schedule could change.
112th-185th: fill gaps in the multi-use path
112th: rapid flashing beacons where the multi-use path crosses Marine Drive.
138th: rapid flashing beacons where the multi-use path crosses Marine Drive.
112th-122nd: buffered bike lanes with bike modified rumble strips in the buffer area (this section is part of the multi-use path).
33rd-185th: shoulder rumble strips* 2019
4,000’ east of NE 33rd to 185th: centerline rumble strips* 2019

*19% of crashes on Marine Drive are lane departure crashes where a person drives out of their travel lane. On average, centerline rumble strips reduce all crash types by 9% and head-on or sideswipe crashes (which are often serious) by 44%. On average, shoulder rumble strips reduce crashes by 36%.

Future growth: Connection to Portland's 2035 Comprehensive Plan

Unlike many HCN streets, the Comprehensive Plan does not identify Marine Drive as a Civic Corridor, and Marine Drive is not close to any Centers (see definitions below).

Corridors Centers
Civic Corridors are Portland's busiest, widest and most prominent streets. They connect centers, help unite Portland with the region, and carry out key transportation functions for traffic, freight and transit. Centers provide the primary areas for growth and change in Portland over the next 25 years. They are compact urban places that anchor complete neighborhoods.

This plan includes a project overview, crash data, issues to address, a safety action plan and project matrix.
