About sidewalk and curb ramp work
You should expect:
- Curb ramp construction at corners with outdated corner designs. Curb ramp design requirements are in place to help prevent unsafe situations, such as people falling out of wheelchairs or scooters, or tripping while using a cane or walker. Expect some curb closures and temporary signs restricting on-street parking next to construction. (Want to learn more about how we build curb ramps that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act? Watch PBOT Crew members explain how they build new sidewalk curb ramps for all Portlanders).
- Accommodation for pedestrians when existing pedestrian routes are impacted by construction.
The Parking Climate and Equitable Mobility Transaction Fee was designed in alignment with the recommendations from the Pricing Options for Equitable Mobility Task Force, a community advisory group convened in 2020-21 to consider if and how new transportation pricing strategies could be used in Portland. The 20 cents per transaction fee was implemented in July 2022 and sends a price signal about the externalized costs of driving and supports investments that advance our transportation climate and equity goals.
