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).

Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) installed “left turn calming” in our neighborhood at SE Flavel Street & 52nd Avenue. This is a new tool that PBOT is piloting to improve safety on our streets for people walking, biking, and driving!
Update on the SE 45th Avenue Repaving and Restriping project from Scott Cohen at Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT):
Repaving is scheduled to begin on September 13th, 2019. The project is scheduled for 14 days of work, however some additional signage and striping work may continue after the paving. The work and schedule are weather dependent.
This signature collection form is now closed. We hope to hear the results of the TGM grant application in Fall 2019.
Most of Brentwood-Darlington and parts of Mt. Scott-Arleta lack sidewalks, local commercial amenities, and adequate transit and street safety. The City of Portland’s Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is applying for a large state grant to engage the residents of our two neighborhoods in planning for improved transportation, housing, and economic opportunities. We invite you to support this application by providing your name and address. Add your email address if you’d like to receive our newsletter. Thank you!
