High Crash Corridors

High Crash Corridor

Fixing our Streets:  Vision ZeroAs a Vision Zero city, Portland is committed to eliminating fatalities and serious injuries on our streets. An ambitious goal like this demands a comprehensive strategy that includes better street engineering, robust education initiatives, and effective enforcement actions.

Such an approach is especially important on Portland’s High Crash Network. These are the streets where a disproportionate number of fatalities and serious injuries occur. Nearly half of the deadly and serious crashes occur on only 8% of Portland streets.

Fixing Our Streets projects on our High Crash Network focus on improving safety on some of our city’s most dangerous streets. This nearly $4 million dollar investment will fund engineering solutions to reduce speed, improve street lighting to make it easier for pedestrians, drivers, and cyclists to see one another, as well as enhanced infrastructure such as pedestrian refuge islands to improve safety.
