82nd Ave Construction Updates

Signal upgrades at Foster, Woodstock & 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 began in April and will continue through the fall at each intersection.

Traffic impacts: Currently, travelers should expect daytime single lane closures from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays at each intersection and pedestrian and cyclist detours.

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.

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 Wodtock 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 began in May and is nearly complete.

Traffic impacts: No traffic impacts.
