Construction Update: June 2021


The Contractor will be modifying travel lanes tonight (6/10/2021) between 93rd Ave and 97th Avenue (including the bridge crossing over I-205) to use the new bridge structure.  This will allow work to begin on the north side of the bridge.  Please pay attention to pedestrian detour signage, as the standard detour route (on the north side of the bridge) will be changing soon. 


Construction work is progressing steadily.  The contractor is focusing on completing all south side improvements and getting ready to shift traffic onto the new expanded portion of the bridge in July 2021.

  • Newly widened bridge over I-205 Intersection along Sunnyside Road.

Sunnyside Road & I-205 Interchange
Bridge construction is progressing steadily. Crews have removed the temporary structure under the new expanded bridge portion, and constructed the south curb and sidewalk on the bridge. The south concrete rail will be poured in early May, followed by installation of the ornamental rail/fence. Extension of south side bicycle/pedestrian facilities from the bridge to the northbound and southbound interchanges is also on the immediate horizon.

Sunnyside Road – 82nd Ave. to I-205 Interchange and I-205 to Stevens Rd.
Road construction continues, focusing on completing the new design of a 12-foot wide mixed-use bike/ped path which includes pedestrian ADA ramps, independent up/down bike ramps, signals, crosswalks, and pedestrian push buttons. Substantial progress has been made toward completion of median landscaping, especially between 82nd and the 9000 block of Sunnyside, including cobblestone paving, topsoil and irrigation.  The 84th Avenue swale is nearly complete, including trees and vegetation.

On the Horizon
Work on Stevens Road is expected to begin in earnest in June. The contractor will only work on one side of the road at a time, so pedestrians will still be able to use the street.  Also, in early July, we expect to shift travel lanes to use the newly widened bridge structure. This will allow workers to complete the remaining north side improvements, including new bike/ped path concrete rail and ornamental rail/fence.

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.

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.
