NE 102nd Avenue Corridor

NE 102nd Ave & NE Prescott St


NE 102nd Ave Safety Project

The NE 102nd Ave Safety Project will be improving safety for all people walking, biking, taking transit, and driving on NE 102nd Ave between Weidler and Sandy.

This nearly two-mile corridor is on Portland’s High Crash Network, which means it is one of the top 30 streets for crashes in the city. This corridor is surrounded by homes, businesses, community centers, and schools, including Prescott Elementary School and Mt. Hood Community College.
