UPDATED: What is happening now?
View PBOT presentation to the Russell Neighborhood Association on NE San Rafael traffic calming project and NE Sacramento-Knott greenway project.
2023 projects are moving to contracting and construction is expected in fall 2023 (weather dependent), including N Portsmouth, N Lombard to N Columbia, NE Ainsworth, NE MLK to NE 15th and SE 135th, SE Stark to SE Division.
Recently installed or refined projects include speed cushions on NE Fremont, 122nd to 141st, and the SW Burlingame traffic chicane pilot.
2024 projects in design include: NE San Rafael, 125th to 138th, SE Harold, 92nd to 122nd, and NE 139th, NE Glisan to SE Stark.

Map of 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 automobile 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.
SW Burlingame Ave is home to a pilot traffic chicane project. Collaborating with the neighborhood, PBOT installed traffic chicanes using more temporary materials. The pilot project's goal is to determine if chicanes can reduce speeds more cost-effectively on narrow streets compared to speed bumps. Other streets in consideration are SW Dolph Ct, NE 118th Ave, and SE 62nd Ave.
Traffic speed data is collected both before and after implementation to determine impacts to the street. SW Burlingame Ave is the first location in the pilot project.
Why traffic calming on SW Burlingame?
SW Burlingame is identified as a Safe Route to School priority investment corridor. Safe Routes to School corridors are where PBOT focuses investments to help families walk, bike, and roll to school safely.
SW Burlingame is an important route for families accessing the Ida B Wells High School and Reike Elementary campuses.
Public Involvement Opportunities
Please contact Scott Cohen at 503-823-5345 or email@example.com if you'd like to connect with PBOT staff about upcoming projects.
View past presentation to the Woodlawn Neighborhood Association about the NE Ainsworth Street, NE MLK Blvd to NE 15th Ave.
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.
