Contractors are wrapping up with street sign upgrades along the corridor and have begun installing high-visibility crosswalks at signalized intersection. This work will continue through September. 

In addition, the project team and contractors are preparing for construction on a package of crossing and street lighting improvements, including:

Minor utility work activity is anticipated this summer related to these improvements. The project team will provide a more detailed construction schedule as soon as available.  

Lastly, the project team is wrapping up public engagement with property owners and residents along the corridor about the 82nd Avenue Major Maintenance project and concept design. 

March 2023 Update

PBOT released a draft concept design and solicited feedback on the largest Critical Fixes project, the 82nd Avenue Major Maintenance project. As part of the design process, PBOT staff engaged with property owners and residents along the corridor through presentations to community organizations, door-to-door canvassing, phone banking, and one-on-one meetings.

January 2023 Update

PBOT began its multi-year effort to bring urgent safety and maintenance repairs to 82nd Avenue with the installation of new speed reader boards and traffic signal controllers on the 7-mile corridor.

Nine signals will be rebuilt along 82nd Avenue to include modern safety and traffic operation technology. Click here to learn more about projects delivering traffic signals.


Critical Fixes will take place through the end of 2026. Beginning in 2022, PBOT will consult with neighboring property owners about nearest-term investments. 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.

Community calls for Critical Fixes

The jurisdictional transfer of 82nd Avenue and Critical Fixes investments are the culmination of years of work by community and their state and local representatives. Community advocates have put lots of resources into developing a vision for 82nd Avenue and have worked hard to hold local governments accountable for addressing the urgent repair and safety needs along the corridor.
