Pedestrian Crossing Improvement on its Way @ Barbur & SW 13th Ave!


ODOT:  OR99W: SW Barbur Blvd @ 13th Avenue Pedestrian Crossing

June 2014

Dear Neighbor:


ODOT is notifying you about some new pedestrian improvements that will be constructed along SW Barbur at SW 13th Ave.  These improvements include:

  1. Use Temporary Work Zone Traffic Control  for safety of site
  2. Install a Solar Powered Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) at the existing marked crossing and Median Island.
  3. Install cast-in-place yellow truncated dome detectable warning devices at locations shown on the plans.
  4. Perform additional and incidental Work as called for by the Specifications and Plans.

The public should expect construction impacts in this area.  Motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians and transit users need to be aware that ODOT will be restricting one lane of traffic northbound on SW Barbur Blvd. as well as occasional lane restrictions on SW Barbur Blvd. headed southbound.  TriMet bus stops will temporarily be relocated during construction.  Northbound and Southbound shoulder bike lanes in this section of SW Barbur Blvd. will be closed intermittently during construction. Construction will begin June of 2014 and will be completed (60) days after construction begins.  Should you have any questions about this project, please contact Shelli Romero at (503) 731-8231 or by email at
