SE Division Street is part of the High Crash Network for people driving, walking and biking.
The City of Portland is making safety improvements and conducting outreach on outer SE Division Street starting in 2017 and continuing into 2021. PBOT will continue talking with community members through 2017 to finalize design details for the safety projects.
See the illustration, map, and table for details, or download a printable document about the work.

PBOT thanks the community for their leadership in identifying needed safety changes on outer Division Street. Special thanks to the Jade District, the Division Midway Alliance, the East Portland Land Use and Transportation Committee, and others who contributed to the East Portland Action Plan and East Portland In Motion, planning efforts that began in 2009.
Segments of Division are Civic and Neighborhood Corridors, and are close to many 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.
Neighborhood Corridors are narrower main streets that connect neighborhoods with each other and to other parts of the city.
|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.|
