*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%.
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).
|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.
This map identifies safety improvement projects along Marine Drive that are complete, planned and funded, and unfunded.
