This project is upgrading intersections across Portland using tools proven to help prevent pedestrian crashes.
The project is focusing on intersections with signals because nearly half of pedestrian crashes occur at these locations (see graphic).
We are prioritizing locations with a history of pedestrian crashes, those on the High Crash Network, and areas with relatively high numbers of lower-income individuals or people of color.
This project will include:
- Pedestrian head starts that provide a "WALK" signal seconds before a green light
- Accessible Pedestrian Systems at more locations with pedestrian head starts to help people with limited vision cross streets safely
- Protected left-turn signals that separate left-turning drivers from people in crosswalks
