SW Capitol Highway has been identified as a High Crash Corridor on PBOT’s Vision Zero Network. Vision Zero is a top City of Portland transportation priority that aims to eliminate deadly and serious injuries from Portland’s streets. This vision includes improving safety so that people feel comfortable walking, biking and taking transit along all Portland streets.
The project will make capital improvements to improve pedestrian crossings and access to transit, reduce crashes, reduce speeds, and enhance existing bike facilities between SW Alfred Street and SW Stephenson Street.
