(May 22, 2024) Thank you, Portland voters for supporting the Fixing Our Streets Program and investing in our work to provide basic maintenance and safer streets. Projected passage of this program for a third four-year period means we can continue to repair potholes and make safety improvements on some of our busiest streets, school routes, and neighborhoods throughout the city. Portlanders know the need for safety and maintenance far exceeds the city's resources. While we are thrilled with this outcome, we now look forward to working with the state legislature to provide additional critical transportation funding for state and local governments.
