Safety Improvement Project

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) finished building a safety improvement project on Oregon Highway 213 (SE 82nd Avenue) at SE Duke Street in Southeast Portland in July 2016. 


Update (08/05/16):  The majority of the construction work is finished. In early August the new radar detection system will be operational; until that time the traffic signals and pedestrian crossings will be on an automatic timer. After the radar detection is installed, people waiting to cross the street on foot or in their cars will activate the traffic signal, resulting in shorter waiting times. A new street light will also be installed at the NW corner of the intersection. 

The new bus pullout at the intersection of SE 82nd Avenue and SE Duke Street is now open. 

Project overview

ODOT selects safety improvement projects based on crash history and the severity of crashes on ODOT right-of-way. Crash data from the most recent five-year period (2008-2012) indicates that 41 crashes occurred in this area. The predominant crash types were rear-end crashes, turning movements and right angle crashes. One pedestrian crash also was recorded at this intersection.​

Budget and funding

This safety improvement project cost approximately $998,000 to complete. Funding came from both state and federal funds.​ 

This project: 

  • Replaced and upgraded traffic signals with larger signal heads/supports and improved illumination at the intersection of SE 82nd Avenue and SE Duke Street.
  • Installed larger street recognition signs north and south of SE Duke Street on SE 82nd Avenue.
  • Added bus pull-out on the southwest corner of SE Duke Street and SE 82nd Avenue.
  • Improved the sidewalk south of SE Duke Street on the west side SE 82nd Avenue between SE Duke Street and SE Claybourne Street.
  • Upgraded ADA Ramps at all four corners of the intersection of SE 82nd Avenue and SE Duke Street.
