Project Overview

This PBOT project prioritizes investments for critical safety and maintenance improvements along NE Halsey Street from NE 112th to 162nd avenues.

Project Background

Portland’s High Crash Network makes up 8% of Portland’s streets and is where 57% of serious injuries crashes and fatalities occur. Using a data-driven Vision Zero approach, PBOT has identified street lighting as a critical improvement to make these streets safer. Recent analysis indicates a number of our High Crash Network streets in some of our most diverse neighborhoods lack adequate street lighting. In addition, public engagement work by PBOT has found that people of color feel less safe walking on poorly lit streets.

The project addresses deficiencies in illumination along NE Halsey Ave by filling the lighting gaps between NE 112th and NE 162nd Streets.

Project Funding

$750,000 from General Funds
