Throughout the city, there are currently key crossings that do not have sufficient street lighting. This project will provide streetlights and poles at up to 25 different locations, which will increase safety and security in our communities. 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. Locations for streetlights will be determined based on Vision Zero as well as considerations for equity and community concerns. This project is expected to be complete in 2017.
