Oregon Highway 212/224 –Sunrise JTA Project
The Sunrise Highway project construction will impact traffic this coming week on several area roads.
Traffic Impacts: Travelers should be aware of changes to travel lanes during construction.
On SE Enoch Court expect one-way traffic, controlled by flaggers, Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for bridge construction overhead. 
On SE Minuteman Way expect one-way traffic, controlled by flaggers, Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for bridge construction overhead.
 SE 122nd Avenue at OR 212/224 expect increased truck traffic and daytime westbound shoulder closures Monday through Friday for paving, curbs, and drainage work.


Reminder:  The new connection between Southeast 82nd Avenue and Southeast 82nd Drive is open. There are new signs to direct traffic.

The biggest change/closure as a result of the new connection between 82nd Avenue and 82nd Drive that the Milwaukie Expressway eastbound access and I-205--southbound access to SE 82nd Drive will be closed permanently.

Travelers heading in both directions between SE 82nd Avenue and SE 82nd Drive will use the new connection. 

Travelers heading south on Southeast 82nd Avenue have the option to continue south to I-205 or turn left at the new signalized intersection and continue east to Southeast 82nd Drive. 

A new signal was installed on the I-205 northbound off-ramp to control traffic heading to SE 82nd Avenue northbound and the Milwaukie Expressway.  

Motorists traveling to SE 82nd Drive from the Milwaukie Expressway eastbound must now take I-205 south to exit 12A (OR 212/224) and then north on SE 82nd Drive.  This 

See the Phase 1 map below.
