Region 1 ADA Curb Ramp Upgrades – U.S. 30 Bypass (Lombard Street)

Construction Phase

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


​​​​​​​​​​We will improve sidewalk curb ramps to the current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility standards on a section of U.S. 30 Bypass (N Lombard Street) from North Omaha Avenue to North Greenwich Avenue in Portland. Construction begins in September 2023 and finishes by the end of 2023.​


Impacts

Construction Impacts

No traffic impacts are expected the week of February 19, 2024. 


During construction, plan for temporary lane, shoulder, parking, and sidewalk closures on N Lombard Street and on intersecting local streets in the project area. All roads will remain open. We will provide ADA-accessible pedestrian detours around the work zones and maintain access for customers of adjacent businesses. We coordinate with affected property and business owners as needed.

Generally, it takes 1-2 weeks to complete work on an individual corner, with construction on several corners happening concurrently. However, only one corner per intersection will be under construction at a time. 

Work is planned to take place during daytime work hours. Nighttime work is not expected.​​

Schedule

​Construction begins in September 2023 and finishes by the end of 2023.

Details

About

​​We are improving sidewalk curb ramps at over 30 individual, unsignalized corners along N Lombard Street between N Omaha Avenue and N Greenwich Avenue to make them ADA-compliant. Improvements range from upgrading existing ramps to the addition of a second ramp at a corner, creating more accessible highway connections for all sidewalk users along N Lombard Street.

The ODOT ADA Program​ is working to bring more than 25,000 curb ramps throughout Oregon into compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. The effort was launched in response to a formal complaint from the Association of Oregon Centers for Independent Living (AOCIL). Together we reached an agreement to improve curb ramps and pedestrian signals along all state highways. We are committed to new standards for accessible routes through work zones, outreach, and addressing public concerns. Everyone who uses sidewalks along our highways will benefit from this commitment and the improvements we make to the curb ramps.
