Portland City Council will consider an ordinance to accept ownership of 82nd Avenue from NE Killingworth to SE Clastop streets at 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 28. The transfer of ownership is supported by a $150 million commitment from the State of Oregon and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), and a $35 million commitment from the City of Portland for improvements to this crucial corridor.
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) will invest the first $80 million in critical safety and maintenance projects from now through 2026. Projects will include new street lighting, pedestrian crossings, and pavement rehabilitation and new accessible curb ramps and other improvements. At the same time, PBOT will begin a process to confirm the community’s vision for 82nd Avenue and determine how the remaining funds should be invested beyond 2026 to support that vision.
