SE 82nd Avenue (OR 213) paving and safety improvements from Foster Road to Thompson Road

Construction Phase

Region 1: Portland metro and Hood River County (Clackamas, Multnomah)

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Construction is underway for safety improvements and paving on SE 82nd Avenue from south of SE Foster Road to SE Thompson Road. This project will repave SE 82nd Avenue in both directions between SE Foster Road and SE Lindy Street. Pedestrian safety improvements include four Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs), upgrades to curb ramps that meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements and new sidewalks in select locations.


Traffic Impact

Construction update (May 23, 2024):

Traffic Impacts will be minimized from noon Friday, May 24 through Monday, May 27. 

Construction continues along SE 82nd Ave. Contractors working for ODOT are doing underground pipe, electrical, maintenance hole work and construction to upgrade over 150 sidewalk curb ramps at select intersections and side streets in the project area to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Current work also includes utility relocations within the project area by PBOT, PGE, Comcast and Lumen. Sign crews will begin installing new signs at the end of May.

Current traffic impacts:​

  • Around-the-clock single lane closures on 82nd Avenue between Foster Road and Glencoe Road.
  • Partial closures on side streets at their intersection with SE 82nd Avenue, including Ramona Street and Glenwood Street.
  • Flaggers will direct traffic nightly between 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. starting Tuesday, May 28 through Thursday, May 30 at the intersection of SE 82nd Avenue and Woodstock Boulevard for underground pipe work.
Please note: the schedule is subject to change due to weather or unforeseen site conditions.

Construction Impacts

Throughout construction, travelers can expect:
  • Daytime and nighttime lane closures on SE 82nd Ave. between SE Foster Road and SE Thompson Road, with at least one lane open in each direction at a time. 
  • Some side streets will temporarily close at their intersections during construction activities with detours in place.
  • Temporary intersection closures during construction activities with detours in place.
  • Temporary pedestrian accessible detour routes for people walking, biking and rolling during construction.​

During construction, people who live or work near the project work areas may hear periodic construction noise from heavy equipment, construction trucks, and tools such as concrete saws, drills, jackhammers and pavement grinders.

Night Work
​To reduce traffic impacts during the day on SE 82nd Ave., some construction work will occur at night. Nighttime construction noise will take place periodically from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m.

Tips for Traveling Safely in Work Zones​

  • Orange is your cue! Pay attention when you see orange signs, barrels, cones and barricades.
  • Obey all speed signs for your safety and the safety of others.
  • Expect delays—plan for them—and leave early so you can drive safely through the work zone.
  • Allow extra time when traveling and follow all signs and flaggers for safety.​​

Travelers should expect delays in the area during construction activities. For the most up-to-date traffic impacts please visit​ ​


Construction started in fall 2023 and continues through summer 2025. The project schedule is subject to change due to weather or unforeseen site conditions. ​



​In addition to 1.65 miles of paving, safety improvements along the project corridor include:

  • ​New enhanced pedestrian crossings, also known as Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs), at four intersections of SE 82nd Avenue at SE Cooper Street, SE Clatsop Street, SE Glencoe Road and parallel to SE Thompson Road (just south of SE Monroe Street/Boyer Drive).
  • New sidewalks roughly between SE Clatsop Street and SE Cornwell Street on both the east and west sides of the highway.
  • Accessible curb ramps (158 total) at intersections in the project area to meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards.​​​
