Construction Update:  January 13, 2020

Work at this time is focused on preparing the I-205 Bridge overcrossing for widening, adding pedestrian and bike improvements to the south side of Sunnyside Road, and project-wide site preparation and tree removal where improvements are proposed.

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

I-205 Bridge Overcrossing – Preparation for widening

What:  The large sign structures on both sides of the bridge will be removed.

When:  Mid-to-late January for three (3) nights

Traffic Impacts:  Flaggers will direct traffic over the bridge in both directions for 2-3 hours beginning around 9pm.  Single lane closures from 7pm to 9pm are possible.

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 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.

Project Wide – Site preparation and tree removal to make way for new facilities

What:  Existing trees and other landscaping will be removed in locations where improvements will be built. New trees and landscaping will be planted in appropriate locations prior to project completion.

When:  Now through February 29

Traffic Impacts:  None anticipated.  Flaggers may intermittently route pedestrians as trees are removed.

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

What:  The middle section of 84th Avenue between Sunnyside Road and Sunnybrook Boulevard will be 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.
