82nd Avenue Construction Updates

From Oregon Department of Transportation

Signal upgrades at Foster, Woodstock, and Flavel

Project description: This project will install upgraded traffic signals and install sidewalk curb ramps that meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards at the intersections of SE 82nd Avenue and SE Foster Road, SE Woodstock Boulevard and SE Flavel Street.

Schedule: Construction is scheduled to begin in late April and will continue through the fall at each intersection.

Traffic impacts:

  • The majority of the work will be performed Monday-Friday, 6 a.m to 3 p.m. Some night work may be necessary.
  • Expect single lane closures at these intersections over the entire construction period.
  • Pedestrian and cyclist access will be available and identified at each intersection, including access for people with disabilities.
  • Some TriMet bus stops may be temporarily closed or moved during this period. For updated service alerts, go to trimet.org/alerts.

SE Lindy Street to SE King Road

Project description: This project will pave SE 82nd Avenue from SE Lindy Street to SE King Road and install new sidewalk curb ramps.

Schedule: Construction began in April and will continue through the fall. This spring, sidewalk and curb ramp work will take place. This summer, paving will take place.

Traffic impacts: Currently, travelers should expect daytime lane closures from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays on SE 82nd Avenue and pedestrian and cyclist detours.

  • Pedestrian detours. Safe and accessible detour paths will guide pedestrians around sidewalk construction areas.
  • Temporary bus stop locations. TriMet bus stops may be temporarily relocated in construction areas. Plan your trip at trimet.org/alerts.
  • Lane closures on 82nd Avenue. There will be single-lane closures and traffic shifts during day time and night time hours:
  • Daytime sidewalk and curb work with lane closures on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Nighttime paving on weekdays from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Weekend work as needed from 9 p.m. to 10 a.m.

Sidewalk Improvements

Project description: This project will remove old driveways and replace them with regular sidewalks at 17 locations along 82nd Avenue (near SE Main Street, SE Woodstock Boulevard, SE Harney Street and SE Clatsop Street). This means fewer tripping hazards, as well as less confusion for drivers about which driveway to use.

Schedule: Construction is scheduled to begin in late April and will continue through the summer.

Traffic impacts: 

  • Expect single lane closures at the driveway locations. Most lane closures will take place during the day. It will take about 1 week  to reconstruct each driveway as sidewalk.
  • Pedestrian and cyclist access will be available and identified at each intersection, including access for people with disabilities.
  • Some TriMet bus stops may be temporarily closed or moved during this period. For updated service alerts, go to trimet.org/alerts.
