Portland Avenue Freight and Access Improvements

The proposed Portland Avenue project will design and construct improvements to greatly increase the condition, efficiency, safety and reliability of this T-1 route (over 10 million tons of freight per year).


Project Background

Portland Avenue is a principal arterial with direct access to/from a Regional Manufacturing/Industrial Growth Center (MIC) and the regional interstate transportation system. The Portland Avenue corridor is a four to six-lane arterial roadway and functions as a freight priority route (T-1) and heavy haul route. Portland Avenue carries 23,000+ vehicles per day with an average heavy truck trip of 19%. Portland Avenue is also an auto priority corridor as described in the City's Transportation Master Plan.





Project Description

The project extends along the Portland Avenue corridor from the north leg of Lincoln Ave to the north leg of E. 27th Street, and east along Lincoln Avenue approximately 200 lf to the Lincoln Avenue bridge deck. The project includes the replacement of asphalt pavement with concrete, roadway rechannelization as needed, bicycle facilities as needed, addition of a new traffic signal at the SR-509 off ramp, upgrades to three (3) existing signals to add interconnects at all four traffic signals, installation of ITS Fiber Optic, replacement of unsafe/unfit sidewalks and addition of missing link sidewalks, installation of ADA curb ramp improvements and a new mid-block pedestrian crossing with push button activation, and bridge deck repairs/resurfacing including expansion joint repair as conditions warrant.
