On May 17, 2016, Portland voters made a strong statement about the importance of sidewalks, safe routes to schools and basic transportation maintenance. They approved Portland’s first local funding source for transportation safety and maintenance, joining nearly 30 other Oregon cities that have local funding.
We are grateful for this vote of confidence in transportation.
This four-year investment will make a big difference in neighborhoods across Portland. It will help us expand preventive maintenance that saves money and prevents potholes. It will reduce fatalities on High Crash Corridors and make it safer for children to walk to school. We will work with our community oversight committee to make sure we follow the will of the voters as we better maintain our transportation system and make it safer for everyone.
We want to keep Portland moving safely and efficiently.
