Construction Update:

January 8, 2021

General Project Update

To minimize traffic congestion around the Clackamas Town Center and Clackamas Promenade during winter holidays, construction work was restricted from taking travel lanes between November 15, 2020 and January 10, 2021. As we are now approaching the end of that holiday moratorium, the contractor will begin again closing lanes to facilitate completion of work.

  • The bridge deck was poured over I-205 Intersection along Sunnyside Road.

Sunnyside Road & I-205 Interchange
Bridge construction has continued through winter and the new bridge deck was poured in late December. The work included placement of approximately 380 cubic yards of concrete, using multiple pumper trucks in just seven hours. Great job! Current bridge work will focus on completing south side improvements, including new curb and sidewalk, barrier rail and ornamental fencing. Crews will also work at both interchanges to so traffic can be shifted to the new bridge once it is complete.

Sunnyside Road – 93rd to I-205 Interchange and I-205 to Stevens
Road construction efforts over the next couple months will focus on completing the south side improvements between the 9000 block and Stevens Rd. Work will include widening the road to align with new bridge construction, and completing curbs, concrete cycle track and sidewalk, landscape strips and street lighting.

Clackamas County prioritizes the health and safety of its employees, contractors, and the public during this time of public health concern. While construction is continuing for the CRC Mobility Project, know that Clackamas County has implemented social distancing requirements for all employees, including those working in the field. All employees are maintaining at least a six-foot distance to remain healthy while continuing work on this project to benefit the Clackamas Regional Center.

All dates and activities are subject to change depending on weather or other variables.

Continuing Construction Activities

Work at this time is focused on the I-205 Bridge overcrossing widening, adding pedestrian and bike improvements to the south side of Sunnyside Road, reconstructing medians, and project-wide traffic signal and street lighting improvements.

I-205 Bridge Overcrossing – Widening is underway

What:  The sidewalk on the south side of I-205 Bridge overcrossing will be closed to allow for widening improvements on the south side of the structure.

When:  Beginning late January of 2020 for approximately one (1) year

Traffic Impacts:  The sidewalk on the north side of the bridge will remain open.

Sunnyside Road (south side) – Construction of pedestrian and bike facilities

What:  The south side of Sunnyside Road (eastbound) between 84th Avenue and 93rd Avenue will be reduced from four to three travel lanes to provide space for pedestrian, bike, and stormwater facilities, and future landscaping and tree planting.

When:  Now through the end of the project, approximately late Fall 2021

Traffic Impacts:  Three eastbound travel lanes and accesses to businesses on the south side of Sunnyside Road will remain open.  The existing bike lane will be removed while the new bike facility is under construction. Signage will indicate “Bikes on Roadway” to alert drivers.  Temporary pedestrian routes around the work zone will be set up one block at a time to minimize out-of-direction travel for pedestrians.

84th Avenue – Partial closure for use as construction staging area

What:  The middle section of 84th Avenue between Sunnyside Road and Sunnybrook Boulevard is closed to vehicular through traffic.

When:  Now through the end of the project, approximately late Fall 2021

Traffic Impacts:  Driveways into the Clackamas Promenade will remain open.  Sidewalks will remain open for pedestrians and available for use by cyclists.  82nd Avenue and 93rd Avenues are alternate routes for vehicular through-traffic between Sunnyside Road and Sunnybrook Boulevard.

80th Avenue– Reconstruction and repaving

What:  80th Avenue between Harmony Road and Southgate Street will be reconstructed and paved to provide better access and circulation.

When:  Now through Fall 2020

Traffic Impacts:  Access will remain open for local traffic, emergency vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists.
