About

ODOT is working to improve the Boring Road overpass at U.S. 26 by raising it to accommodate over-height vehicles. Additional clearance will allow large vehicles to stay on U.S. 26 instead of being detoured onto Orient Drive and Kelso Road.

A 12 week closure of the SE 282nd Avenue overpass where it crosses above U.S. 26 is required as part of the construction and will occur July 5 through Sept. 28, 2018​.

The project includes these key elements:
  • Raise SE 282nd Avenue/Boring Road overpass at U.S. 26 by more than two feet
  • Repair and resurface the roadway on the overpass
  • Build new storm water ponds

How many vehicle use Boring Road/SE 282nd Avenue?
As of 2015, 8300 vehicles travel on SE 282nd Avenue north of OR 212 on an average day according to Clackamas County traffic data.

How many over height vehicles currently detour off of U.S. 26 and will benefit from this project?
In 2016, ODOT issues 77 eastbound permits for trucks higher than 14 feet 8 inches and 21 westbound permits for trucks higher than 15 feet. Currently these trucks detour onto local roads.

When this work is complete the overpass will provide 17 feet of clearance between the road surface of U.S. 26 and the overpass.
 
Did ODOT consider lowering U.S. 26 instead of raising the Boring Road/SE 282nd Avenue overpass?
Lowering U.S. 26 would cost an additional $5 million, result in greater environmental impact and significant traffic delays on U.S. 26. Due to the reasons, crews will instead raise the overpass more than two feet.
