ODOT to improve SE 82nd Ave from SE Foster Road to Lindy Street

Now in design is a SE 82nd Avenue ODOT project that encompasses the following:

  • Repaving in both directions (except for stretches recently repaved)
  • Installation of two Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (at Cooper and Clatsop streets)
  • Throughout the corridor, installation of curb ramps that meet ADA requirements
  • New sidewalks in certain locations (between Clatsop and Lindy streets)

The foregoing is not part of ODOT’s January 2018 82nd Avenue Implementation Plan

(https://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/Projects/Project%20Documents/Implementation-Plan-17PF120.pdf).  Instead it appears to be due to coordination between ODOT and the City of Portland with a view to the eventual transfer of jurisdiction over 82nd Avenue.  This sort of coordination is a goal of PBOT’s 2019 82nd Avenue Plan: Planning for a Future Civic Corridor.  

Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2022.  For more detail, see https://www.oregon.gov/odot/projects/pages/project-details.aspx?project=21177
