Oregon Highway 224 (Clackamas Highway)

March 7 - 14, 2015*

*Schedules are subject to change due to weather and site conditions.

Oregon Highway 224 at Southeast 135th Avenue

Project Description: The project will improve safety at the intersection of Oregon Highway 224 and Southeast 135th Avenue by replacing the traffic light poles, adding left turn signals for vehicles traveling from Southeast 135th Avenue to OR 224, and adding street lights. The project will also build a new bus pullout east of the intersection, a new sidewalk along the south side of OR 224, after removing the hedge next to the soundwall, and sidewalk ramps on the corners.

Traffic Impacts:  Expect periodic lane closures on Southeast 135th Avenue and shoulder work on OR 224 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. as workers excavate for foundations for the signal poles on the northeast and southwest corners of the intersection.

The new bus turnout on the southeast corner of the intersection will be paved, weather permitting, on Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17. The paving will require a daytime lane closure of eastbound OR 224 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Pedestrians and Bus Riders: Recent work at the northeast corner of OR 224 and Southeast 135th Avenue at the TriMet bus stop (#30 and 156), caused muddy conditions. Go to TriMet.org to see schedule changes or call 503-238-7433.
