The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has announced three open houses where you can learn more and offer input on their High Crash Corridor Safety program.
High Crash Corridors are roadways that, according to PBOT, "have exceptional concentrations of crash activity." By identifying these corridors and putting them into a coordinated program, PBOT is able to target limited funding to make them safer. Current roads on the list include Portland's most notorious arterials like SW Barbur, SE 122nd, SE Foster, SE 82nd, SE Powell, Marine Drive, SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy, SE Division and others.
We all know these roads kill and seriously injure Portlanders far too often. These open houses give you the chance to do something about them.
