82nd Avenue is in disrepair and needs urgent maintenance and safety repairs. By the end of 2026, PBOT will invest $80 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to deliver:

Project planning for Critical Fixes was completed through past planning efforts, such as PBOT’s 2019 82nd Avenue Plan. Beginning in 2022, PBOT will consult with neighboring property owners about nearest-term investments. More lighting and new crossings will be constructed along 82nd Avenue by the end of 2023, shown in the graphic as “Early Implementation.” In addition to lighting and crossing improvements, PBOT will develop and design other safety and maintenance improvements (as identified in the 2019 82nd Avenue Plan) by the end of 2024. PBOT will work closely with businesses owners during construction to minimize impacts and clearly communicate how employees and visitors can access their location. Construction of these improvements must be built by the end 2026 or PBOT will lose this federal funding.

When all of the Critical Fixes are completed, 82nd Avenue will have more:

  • Street lighting
  • New and enhanced crossings
  • Updated traffic and street signs 
  • Smooth pavement
  • Curb ramps
  • Modern traffic signals and beacons
