Project Scope & Background
The Portland Bureau of Transportation's (PBOT) 2022 Traffic Signals Superbundle project will construct seven new signalized crossings (SW Naito Parkway & SW Whitaker Street, SE 52nd Avenue & SE Woodstock Street, NE MLK Boulevard & NE Going Street, E Burnside Street & SE 16th Avenue, SE Washington Street & SE 86th Avenue, SE 148th Avenue & SE Main Street, NE Glisan Street & NE 113th Avenue) and will add additional street lighting on NE Glisan Street from NE 82nd to NE 162nd Streets. PBOT will also construct related ADA and stormwater improvements as part of the project.
Most of the traffic signals in the 2022 Signals Superbundle project emerged from the 2017 Safe Routes to Schools public involvement effort and will help children cross busy streets to get to school. Each traffic signal has its own dedicated funding source, including from Fixing Our Streets, System Development Charges (SDCs), general fund, and Cannabis Tax.
