Bureau of Transportation seeks input on 11 major roads for East Portland Arterial Streets Strategy.

PMG PHOTO: ZANE SPARLING - A man crosses the street while cars whizz by at the corner of Powell Boulevard and 122nd Avenue in Southeast Portland. The Portland Bureau of Transportation is seeking input from East Portlanders regarding their "transportation experiences and investment preferences" along major streets in that portion of the city.

The East Portland Arterial Streets Strategy involves eleven roadways — nine of which are considered high-crash corridors — with four or more traffic lanes that are east of 82nd Avenue. The goal of the plan is to reduce risk for all road users.

"In addition to changes to driving, the team will also look at how changes to the street could make walking, using transit, or riding a bicycle safer and more convenient for those traveling in East Portland," the bureau reports.

The survey closes to respondents on July 15. You can take the survey here.
