(July 10, 2017) The transportation package passed by the state legislature will invest in critical safety and maintenance improvements that will make a big difference for Portlanders and all Oregonians, said City Commissioner Dan Saltzman, who oversees the Portland Bureau of Transportation.
"This is an exciting and impressive package of transportation projects and maintenance funds for our entire state but also the City of Portland," Saltzman said. "I look forward to working with community partners, our employees and the private sector in bringing good projects and needed maintenance to Portland’s streets due to this unprecedented level of investment. Thank you Oregon legislators and Governor for working hard and making this happen."
Highlights of the transportation package's investments in Portland include:
The City of Portland strongly supports investment in transportation infrastructure to improve public safety, grow the economy and help reduce carbon pollution. The $5.3 billion package is the first new funding for transportation since the legislature approved House Bill 2001 in 2009.
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is the steward of the City’s transportation system, and a community partner in shaping a livable city.
