In June 2022, the State of Oregon transferred ownership of 82nd Avenue (from Lombard Street to the southern city limit at Clatsop Street) to the City of Portland. The transfer of ownership is supported by a $150 million commitment from the State of Oregon and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), and a $35 million commitment from the City of Portland for improvements to this crucial corridor.
The first $80 million will be available immediately. The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) will invest in critical safety and maintenance projects from now through 2026. Projects will include new street lighting, pedestrian crossings, and pavement rehabilitation and new accessible curb ramps and other improvements. PBOT is initiating a process to confirm the community’s vision for 82nd Avenue and determine how the remaining funds should be invested beyond 2026 to support that vision.
