Our crews are in 24-hr emergency response mode as we work to treat the roads across #pdx. Watch as our teams prepare salt trucks and snow plows and head out into the field. If you see a PBOT crew member on the road today, be sure to give them a wave! 👋👊👍 #pdxtraffic #pdxtst #pdxsnow

The @theportlandtram will close for scheduled maintenance from 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 14, reopening at 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday, February 20. The work is scheduled for the President’s Day holiday weekend, when the tram experiences lower than normal use and also normally closes for the national holiday.

The closure will allow crews to shorten the tram’s haul rope. The haul rope, used to propel the tram cabins from one station to the other, stretches over time and must be shortened approximately every 18 months.

During the closure, shuttle buses will run between Oregon Health & Science University’s South Waterfront and Marquam Hill campuses. Passengers can catch a shuttle bus from the South Waterfront at SW Whitaker between SW Bond Ave and SW River Pkwy and on Marquam Hill at the Kohler Pavilion roundabout at 808 SW Campus Drive.

Shuttles will run during the Tram’s normal operating hours. The shuttle hours will be:
Wed. Feb. 14: Tram closes at 8:30pm; shuttles run 8:30pm to 9:30pm
Thurs. Feb. 15: Shuttles, 5:30am to 9:30pm
Fri. Feb. 16: Shuttles, 5:30am to 9:30pm
Sat. Feb. 17: Shuttles, 9am to 5pm
Sun. Feb. 18: No shuttles or Tram (normal Sunday closure)
Mon. Feb. 19: No shuttles or Tram (normal holiday closure)
Tues. Feb. 20: Tram is open, no shuttle, 5:30am to 9:30pm
More shuttles will run during peak travel times (7 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m.) Nonetheless, people should plan to add as much as 30 minutes to their usual trip. If possible, it is also advisable to avoid scheduling meetings and appointments on the hill and at the waterfront on the same day.

Shuttles will be accessible to people using wheelchairs or other mobility devices. Since the tram is normally closed on the President’s Day holiday, the shuttle service will be closed as well. Fare will not be required to board the shuttles.

Free yard signs to promote 20 mph speed limits!
The City is providing FREE “20 is plenty” yard signs and bumper stickers to raise awareness about Portland’s new 20 mph residential speed limit.
Yard sign pick-up times and locations are:
• Feb. 24, 9:30-2:30 p.m., Madison High School, 2735 NE 82nd
• Feb. 26-Aug. 31, Mon-Fri, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., City of Portland Bureau of Transportation, Congress Center Building, 1001 SW 5th, Suite 500 (5th floor)
• March 3, noon-4 p.m., Midland Library, 805 SE 122nd
• March 10, noon-4 p.m., Zenger Farm, 11741 SE Foster
• March 31, noon-4 p.m., Multnomah Arts Center parking lot, 7688 SW Capitol
• Additional locations to be announced at http://visionzeroportland.com
In an effort to increase safety, speed limits on Portland’s residential streets are dropping to 20 miles per hour following a recent Portland City Council decision. The new speed limit will take effect citywide by April 1, 2018.
The 20 mph speed limit is part of Portland’s Vision Zero work to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries. A pedestrian hit by a driver at 25 mph is nearly twice as likely to die compared to someone hit at 20 mph.
PBOT is doubling the number of residential speed limit signs, installing approximately 2,000 across the city. Not every residential street will have a speed limit sign, but the 20 mph speed limit will be in effect on all residential streets.
View a map of 20 mph residential streets and get more details on yard signs at http://visionzeroportland.com.

Thank you for supporting safe streets by promoting the new speed limit and by driving 20 mph or less on our residential streets!

This morning, @pbotinfo Director Leah Treat and @portlandpolice Captain Michael Crebs help change first residential speed limit sign from 25 mph to 20 mph - the first of about 2,000 signs that will cover nearly 70 percent of city streets, making neighborhoods safer. "It is unacceptable for anyone to be killed by traffic violence," PBOT Director Leah Treat said. "Today we are poised to take a significant step forward in making our neighborhoods safer and more livable. Five miles an hour may not sound like much, but when it comes to reducing the severity of crashes it makes a big difference. By reducing speeds from 25 to 20, we can make it nearly two times more likely that a person will survive a crash." #20isplenty #visionzero #pdxtraffic #trafficsafety #portland #portlandor #portlandoregon #pdx #pdxlife #pdxnow

Heads up #pdxtraffic! Installation of the fixed speed safety cameras planned along NE Marine Drive near NE 33rd and NE 138th has started & will continue through mid-February 2018.

Why is the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) doing this? Speeding is a top contributing factor to deadly crashes across the Portland region. Traveling at excessive speeds has been consistently linked to higher crash risks. The faster people drive, the longer it takes them to recognize a dangerous situation and to bring their vehicle to a stop once they have hit the brakes. The Vision Zero action item for speed includes a speed safety cameras pilot. The pilot encompasses four high crash corridors in the first two years (and to expand the program after the pilot). The first three fixed speed safety cameras are currently operating along Southwest Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway, SE 122nd Avenue and SE Division Street.
Safe speeds save lives. Learn more about the Fixed Speed Safety Camera program on our website (link in profile)
