Keep Portland Moving: Utility Coordination Scoping Project

Portland streets are one of the City’s most significant investments. Unfortunately, frequent utility work in the right of way results in pavement cuts, trenching, and repaving, which degrades the streets and causes traffic disruptions for the public. With a recent City Innovation Grant, the Portland Bureau of Transportation is exploring how to better coordinate right of way work among City agencies and utilities. Through this effort, PBOT has found ways to significantly increase coordination, resulting in more efficient use of limited transportation dollars, better preservation of Portland streets, and fewer disruptions to the public. These documents describe how PBOT will do it.
