Road paving

Why does the road need to be repaved?paving

ODOT is repaving SE 82nd Avenue because it is more cost effective to maintain road pavement than to let it degrade to a point of needing more significant repairs. The project will improve the roadway before conditions worsen and ensure it will continue to serve the community’s transportation needs. Paving also provides an opportunity to add bike lanes to places where the road is wide enough.
