EPASS: East Portland Arterial Streets Strategy


epass concept designThe East Portland Arterial Streets Strategy will develop a design concept for every city street with four or more lanes east of 82nd Avenue, based on safety analysis, traffic modeling and community input. Street designs already in progress will be included as well.

These heavily-used “arterial” streets - like Division, Stark, Glisan and 122nd – see a disproportionate number of serious and fatal crashes, so PBOT is taking action with 15 different safety projects. 

But many are asking us: What happens to traffic patterns when we change multiple streets in the same area? And are we sure we’re using the most appropriate and effective tools to reduce crashes while making sure people can get to their jobs, schools and other destinations on time, whether by walking, biking, taking transit, or driving?

EPASS seeks to answer these questions, and in doing so, provide the people of East Portland certainty as to how their major streets will look and function into the future.

EPASS also will recommend several new, community-supported projects for potential inclusion in future funding efforts.
