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.

Errol Heights Online Survey – 3 Days Left!

From PBOT:

Do you support a shared street design or a sidewalk on one side of the street?

The biggest design question that we are currently working through is whether to advance the design with a shared-street concept or to include a sidewalk on one side. This design applies to 48th, 49th, 51st, Tenino Drive, and Nehalem. The rest of the streets in the project area require sidewalks. Several people used our yellow and red dot map at the open house to indicate their preference, and we’d like to hear from everyone else.

To help inform the decision, we have put together an info sheet about both designs available for download here.

If you haven’t already, please take a few minutes to fill out our brief survey by January 5, 2018.
Take the survey >>

This feedback will directly influence the final design for SE 48th, 49th, 51st, Tenino Drive, and Nehalem St.

Next steps

  • Property owners fill out online survey stating preference for a shared street or sidewalk on one side design by January 5th, 2018
  • PBOT analyzes feedback and makes final design decision by the end of January 2018
  • LID meetings scheduled for February and March – more information forthcoming

Contact us via email with questions in the meantime.
