PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Portland Bureau of Transportation proposes to stop repaving major roads for the next five years.

That would save more than $4 million a year as the bureau deals with lower-than-expected revenue from the state.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/9LWBK4) the bureau has a $250 million annual budget but is committed to several big projects, including replacing the Sellwood Bridge and building a MAX line to Milwaukie.
