Fixing our Streets:  Paving

Well maintained streets are vital to getting Portlanders from place to place easily, safely, and sustainably. PBOT is responsible for maintaining over 4,800 miles of city streets. Sixty percent of those are neighborhood streets. The rest are busy streets that Portlanders use daily to get to work and school, that our businesses use to move freight and get their goods to market, and that buses use to get transit riders to their destinations.

PBOT focuses our paving work on keeping streets from falling into poor or very poor condition. This approach saves Portland money because the worse a street’s condition, the more expensive it is to fix.

The Fixing Our Streets paving projects detailed here will not meet all of Portland’s street maintenance needs, but represent a significant step in the right direction. They will help Portland close the gap and get more streets into the condition that Portlanders expect.
