What's Happening Now?
PBOT is currently in the process of designing the early implementation Critical Fixes investments, which include new signage and striping, new crossings, and new street lighting.
82nd Avenue is in disrepair and needs urgent maintenance and safety repairs. PBOT will invest $80 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to deliver more lighting, safer crossings, smoother pavement, sidewalk and accessibility improvements, and upgraded traffic signals.

|Street Lighting||$2 - 5 million|
|Crossings||$12 - 15 million|
|Corridor Safety||$12 - 15 million|
|Pavement & Curb Ramps||$35 million|
|Traffic Signals||$15 million|
Critical Fixes will take place through the end of 2026. Beginning in 2022, PBOT will consult with neighboring property owners about nearest-term investments. New signage and striping, 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.
