Proposed Projects for STREETS: Lighting Portland

If the measure passes, what projects would be completed? 

Using a data-driven Vision Zero approach, PBOT has identified street lighting as a way to make certain streets safer. Recent analysis indicates several streets in some of Portland’s neighborhoods would receive lighting projects if the measure passes. 

What would be the impact on streets?   

If the measure passes, additional street lights would be added that would increase visibility for everyone and could reduce fatalities and injuries.

Proposed Project locations:

  • Designated streets in the Vision Zero Action Plan based collision history
  • Streets wider than 48 feet
  • Streets with bus service
  • Streets with lighting on only one side
  • Alignment with city goals


Proposed Locations for Additional Street Lighting Projects

NE Glisan Street (102nd to 162nd)

NE Killingsworth Street (42nd to Portland Highway)

SE 122nd Avenue (Stark to Powell)

SE Stark Street (122nd to 162nd)

SW Capitol Highway / 49th Avenue (Barbur to Stephenson)

TOTAL Proposed Street Lighting: $4.5 million
