Building a Better 82nd: August 10, 2023 Update

Biweekly email updates about Building a Better 82nd

Civic Corridor Investment Strategy

In-person District Workshops - Thank you for joining us!

PBOT, along with other agency and community partners, hosted District Workshops this summer focused on three different segments of 82nd Avenue: North, Center, and South. These workshops provided additional opportunities for community members to discuss transportation opportunities and challenges. Next, the project team will summarize the community input gathered through a variety of formats – focus groups, online surveys, stakeholder interviews, and in-person events – to inform the creation of a longer list of projects that address safety and maintenance on 82nd Avenue.

Over 160 community members attended one of three district workshops in summer 2023.

Critical Fixes: Near-term safety and maintenance improvements 

Project team wrapping up initial round of public engagement this summer

In the past six months, PBOT’s 82nd Avenue Critical Fixes project team has been reaching out to the 82nd Avenue community about upcoming construction along the corridor. So far, the team has given 11 presentations to community organizations, gathered feedback from 200+ respondents to an online survey, reached 200+ businesses during door-to-door canvassing and phone banking, met one-on-one with 30 property and business owners, and mailed thousands of postcards and letters. We are doing our best to get the word out and offer conversations to folks who want to learn more about the projects, but we know our work isn’t done!  

We’re wrapping up our first round of engagement this summer, and we still want to hear from you. View the 82nd Avenue Critical Fixes Major Maintenance draft concept design here: 

If you have feedback about the concept design or you want to speak with project staff about improvements coming in 2023 to 2026, email us at or call 503-865-8282.
