OBEC is leading a large multi-discipline team in the design of an important new roadway corridor in the Portland metro area, known as the Sunrise JTA Project, the goal of which is to construct a new connection between I-205 and the high-traffic Clackamas industrial district.
The Sunrise JTA Project is a mainline extension of the Milwaukie Expressway (OR 224) from I-205 to 122nd Avenue that varies from two to four lanes. It includes a reconfiguration of the 82nd Avenue overcrossing (which includes a new freeway overcrossing from 82nd Avenue to 82nd Drive) and modifications to local circulation, including widening the 122nd Avenue approach to OR 212/224, and providing local access where needed.
The overall project is aimed at reducing congestion, supporting regional livability and safe multi-modal connectivity, and enhancing economic development opportunities in Clackamas County.
The $130 million Sunrise Corridor project includes the construction of more than 12,000 feet of new roadway, 4 new bridges, new multi-use paths, and major interchange/intersection improvements.
