Phase 1: Critical Safety & Maintenance for 82nd Avenue

PBOT is investing $80 million in 82nd Avenue to deliver basic safety and maintenance repairs to the corridor, including crossings, lighting, safety improvements at intersections, and sidewalk improvements.
2021 to 2026

82nd Avenue hosts one of TriMet’s busiest bus lines, serves up to 30,000 vehicle trips a day, and is also one of Portland's highest crash corridors. The street is in bad shape and needs urgent maintenance and safety repairs. PBOT will invest $80 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act funding to deliver new crossings, more lighting, improved sidewalks, traffic signal upgrades, new pavement, and safety improvements at intersections. Because the project is federally funded, PBOT faces a tight timeline to deliver the needed repairs. All projects must be built by 2026 or PBOT will lose the money.

To meet this deadline, PBOT will rely on insights from the extensive community engagement the bureau and other agencies conducted over the past 10 years, including the ODOT Avenue of Roses Implementation Plan, PBOT's 2019 82nd Avenue Plan, and Metro’s Get Moving 2020 regional funding measure. PBOT will have the opportunity to consult with the community on specific locations for some of the repairs. This consultation will start in spring 2022.

Project Timeline

This graphic shows the anticipated project timeline for Phase 1 of the 82nd Avenue Program. More lighting and new crossings will be constructed along 82nd Avenue by the end of 2023. 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) including improved sidewalks, traffic signal upgrades, new pavement, and safety improvements at intersections by the end of 2024. Construction of these improvements must be built by the end 2026 or PBOT will lose this federal funding.
