The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has developed a draft plan for 82nd Avenue that will help transform it into a Civic Corridor. As stated by PBOT, the 82nd Avenue Plan’s purpose is “to identify capital improvement projects, policies, design practices and other recommendations to support the incremental transformation of 82nd Avenue into a Civic Corridor, as envisioned in the Portland 2035 Comprehensive Plan. This plan is also intended to be in service to a larger effort underway, the eventual transfer of ownership of 82nd Avenue (OR 213) from Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to the City of Portland, under the stewardship of the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT).”

In collaboration with the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and their 82nd Avenue Study, the City is considering how 82nd Avenue can be developed over time, and what barriers need to be overcome. The Draft 82nd Avenue Plan can be accessed online for review, and any feedback can be submitted to [email protected].
