Report a streetlight problem

Report a streetlight outage, a light going on and off (cycling), a streetlight that's on during the day, vandalism, or any other problem with a streetlight. The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) relies on reports like yours to fix issues with our 55,000 streetlights.

A report should take 5 minutes to complete. Simple repairs may take up to 2 weeks.

Call PBOT's Signal and Street Lighting team

Please provide your name and daytime telephone number. Be prepared to provide as much information as you can about the location including the closest address and the side of the street. Map and pole numbers can typically be found on the "pole tag," a 3-inch round metal plate about eye level on the streetlight itself. Not all streetlights have a pole tag, but if they do, these numbers will help ensure we get to the right problem.
