Map of Projects

View a map of the projects.

This is a map showing projects to reduce speed on neighborhood cut-through routes.  It shows the locations for speed bumps, speed cushions and other traffic calming projects on streets throughout the city. PBOT understands that this map is not accessible for users of assistive technology. Due to the complexity of the information the map provides and the currently available map platforms at the city, it will take some time to make adjustments.  We thank you for your patience while we work on a technology-based solution. As we work toward providing accessibility, please contact email address and/or program name phone number to reach PBOT staff who can assist you to get the data you need from the map. You can also contact PBOT’s ADA Coordinator at Lisa.Strader@portlandoregon.gov or at 503-823-5703.

Again, thank you for your understanding and patience.

How were the projects chosen?

PBOT developed an evaluation matrix combining traffic operations like speeds and volumes, policy considerations like priority safe routes to school corridors, and equity impacts using PBOT's Equity Matrix. Streets with the highest speeds and traffic volumes in areas of highest needs were prioritized.

Will my street be considered?

Please contact 311 to report speeding or other safety issues. You can also look at the last 10 years of PBOT's traffic data available on this web map. This will show you similar data that PBOT staff use to evaluate traffic operations.
