Oregon Highway 212/224 –Sunrise JTA Project                                                                            July 2016
Project Overview
The Sunrise Expressway opened on July 1, 2016.  It is a two-mile long, four-lane highway that connects the Milwaukie Expressway to SE 122nd Avenue where it links up with OR 212/224.  A shared use path for pedestrians and cyclists parallels the highway.  The new highway takes pressure off surrounding roads, reducing congestion and improving travel times for everyone in the area.

By using the Sunrise Expressway, you can avoid the busy highways and local roads around the Interstate 205 Exit 12 and 13 interchanges.  Share this information with your employees, customers and suppliers so they learn about faster travel options to your location.  Note:  GPS may not show the up-to-date directions.  It takes some time for GPS systems to catch up with a new road and for GPS users to update their system information.

​Project Background Information
Complete after three years of construction, the Sunrise Expressway is the first new highway in the Portland Metro Area in over 30 years. The multi-modal project improves traffic flow and eases congestion for people driving, biking and walking. The highway will improve congestion on OR 212, I-205 and SE 82nd Avenue and 82nd Drive. Almost 20,000 daily trips will be diverted from existing roads, reducing congestion costs by more than $20 million a year.
