The East Portland Rapid Flash Beacon Project will improve pedestrian and bicycle crossing safety at 17 arterial intersections in outer eastside Portland. The project implements safety improvement recommendations from the East Portland in Motion (EPIM) Plan, adopted by City Council in 2011. EPIM is a five year implementation strategy for enhancing active transportation in neighborhoods east of 82nd Ave, which identified over 80 priority construction projects and programs. Funding for the Rapid Flash Beacon Project comes from a grant from the State of Oregon through Representative Shemia Fagan.
