Welcome

ODOT wants to hear from you about the timing of the closure of the US 26 SE 282nd/Boring Road overpass that will take place sometime in 2018 and will last for several months.

ODOT will raise the overpass to allow over-height trucks to remain on US 26 instead of detouring onto local arterials. This project will also maintain the overpass by resurfacing and replacing bridge joints.

This online open house will be avaliable for new comments until September 15, 2016.

Overview and Background

The Boring Road overpass is too low to accommodate some over-height vehicles on US 26, requiring detours onto Orient Drive and Kelso Road. ODOT is working to raise the overpass, providing additional clearance that will allow large vehicles to stay on US 26. The project will also repair structural elements and repave the roadway surface on the overpass.

  • The Problem

    The Problem

    The overpass is too low for some freight vehicles, requiring detours onto nearby roads.
  • Visible Damage

    Visible Damage

    Damage from over-height vehicles is visible on the overpass.
  • Worn Surface

    Worn Surface

    The worn-down road surface shows exposed structural elements that must be repaired.
  • Solution

    Solution

    This project will raise the overpass deck by more than two feet and will repair and resurface the roadway.

Current height limits

The current height of the overpass clearance is 15 feet. Standard overpass clearance for this section of US 26 should be 17 feet, 4 inches. US 26 is a designated highway route for trucks with loads greater than 16 feet high.

Project details

The project includes these key elements:

  • Raising SE 282nd Avenue/Boring Road overpass at US 26 by more than two feet.
  • Repairing and resurfacing the overpass roadway.
  • Building new stormwater ponds to manage runoff from the roadway.

Anticipated schedule

  • Design
    Now – December 2017
  • Construction
    Spring/Summer 2018 – Fall 2018

Give Feedback About Construction Impacts and Detours

The project will require an extended full closure of SE 282nd Avenue/Boring Road where it crosses US 26. Detours will be in place while the overpass is closed (see detour map). US 26 will remain open during construction.

  • Proposed Detours

    Proposed Detours

    Northbound and Southbound detour routes.
  • Northbound Detour

    Northbound Detour

    Northbound travelers will take US 212/Compton Road to US 26 westbound to Stone Road.
  • Southbound Detour

    Southbound Detour

    Southbound travelers will take Orient Drive to Compton Road and back to SE 282nd Avenue/Boring Road.

Detour routes

While the SE 282nd Avenue/Boring Road overpass is closed, northbound travelers will take US 212/Compton Road to US 26 westbound to Stone Road. Southbound travelers will take Orient Drive to Compton Road and back to SE 282nd Avenue/Boring Road.

We want your feedback
