Right now, the street lighting on SE Powell does not meet City standards. This project would work with the Oregon Department of Transportation to add streetlights to key crossings on this road. This project will increase safety and security in our community. These improvements are part of Portland’s commitment to Vision Zero, which is the belief that one traffic related fatality is too many and that we can take steps (such as adding new streetlights) to make our streets safer and reduce fatalities. In addition, current streetlights will be retrofitted with LED lights, which are more cost and energy efficient. The project is expected to be completed in 2020.
