Construction continues on 82nd Avenue Crossings 

Initial work is underway to construct six new pedestrian crossings on 82nd Avenue. Construction is taking place on NE 82nd at the intersections of Beech, Klickitat, and Schuyler streets; and on SE 82nd Avenue at the intersections of Ash, Clinton and Schiller streets. Contractors with PBOT are continuing to install storm pipes and test sumps at these intersections. This work is essential to improve drainage along 82nd Avenue and side streets.
