ODOT constructed roadway improvements on Powell Boulevard (US Highway 26) from SE 122nd Avenue to SE 136th Avenue. These safety improvements will reduce the frequency and severity of crashes and help vehicles, pedestrians, transit and bicyclists share the road with fewer conflicts. Roadway, bike and pedestrian safety improvements include:
- Sidewalks where there are none now
- Crosswalks so people can cross the road more safely
- Mix of buffered, separated and sidewalk level bike lanes
- Center turn lanes for cars, buses and trucks for safer turns and to reduce back-ups
- Storm drains to prevent water from pooling on the road
- Lighting for improved visibility
- Enhanced pedestrian crossings with Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons to alert drivers that people are crossing the street
This was the first phase of the Outer Powell Transportation Safety Project. The second phase
is currently in construction and will bring safety improvements from I-205 to SE 122nd Avenue and SE 136th Avenue to just east of SE 174th Avenue (the Portland/Gresham city limits).
