Project background

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. 

Planned cross section of SW Capitol Highway between SW Alfred Street and SW Stephenson Street:

 

 

Project Scope

  • Restripe 4-lane roadway to 2 lanes with center turn lane
  • Enhancements to existing crossing at SW Alfred
  • New pedestrian crossings with median islands and lighting at SW Coronado and SW Dickinson
  • Plastic bollard or parking protection to existing bike lanes
  • Posted speed reduction from 35 MPH to 30 MPH
  • Marked crosswalk across SW Capitol Hwy at SW 49th
