OR 212 Improvements

I-205 to U.S. 26

About the Project

ODOT is improving Oregon 212 from Interstate 205 to U.S. 26 through Damascus and Boring. Traffic delays and congestion are expected in the project area.

Key Project Improvements

  • Repair and repave OR 212.
  • ADA-compliant sidewalk curb ramps and pedestrian facilities at 26 intersections along OR 212.
  • Installation of a fish-friendly bridge at North Fork Deep Creek, currently carried under OR 212 via corrugated pipe.

Construction Continues on OR 212 Between I-205 and U.S. 26

Over the past few months, we began work to improve the roadway on Oregon 212. We installed ADA-compliant sidewalk and curb ramps and repaired the road in preparation for paving. Paving on OR 212 began in June, starting from I-205 moving east to 172nd Avenue. Paving work has ended for the season and will continue from 172nd Avenue to U.S. 26 in 2021.
