New Speed Limit on SE Flavel Street

From Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT):

This week the Portland Bureau of Transportation will be updating the speed limit on two segments of SE Flavel Street. The new speed limit will be 25 mph from 52nd to 92nd avenues and from 112th Avenue to Deardorff Road.

The reduced speed limits support the City of Portland’s Vision Zero goal to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries. Speed is a factor in nearly half of deadly crashes that occur in Portland. Lower speeds result in fewer crashes. When crashes occur, lower speeds make it more likely that people will survive (see image below). You can learn more about the City of Portland’s Vision Zero work at http://visionzeroportland.com.

If you have questions or concerns about the new speed limits, please contact matthew.kelly@portlandoregon.gov or at 503-823-5831.
