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 people walking. Sidewalks are also an important community amenity. They make it easier for people to get around their neighborhoods, access transit and walk to local businesses, parks and schools.

The Fixing Our Streets sidewalk improvements will make an immediate impact by addressing long-standing needs for better and safer pedestrian connections to schools, community centers and other key services.
