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.
