Sidewalk Improvements

Sidewalk improvements in Portland

Fixing our Streets:  Sidewalk ImprovementsPortland’s sidewalk system is made up of three elements: sidewalks, corners, and curbs. Sidewalks are a crucial safety tool. Research has shown that sidewalks that are physically separated from streets can help to prevent 88% of crashes involving pedestrians. Sidewalks are also an important community amenity.
