Traffic Light Changes at Stearns and I-480

The following is a note from Planning Director Kim Lieber – please take note:

“Beginning Tuesday, April 13 – weather permitting – Perram Electric will be replacing the existing signal at Stearns Road and I-480 near Hastings. As part of our ongoing signals upgrade, slight modifications of signal operations were approved by ODOT to improve traffic flow through the area. For southbound lanes on Stearns heading to I-480, the left lane will become left turn only at the I-480 West on ramp. The right lane will be designated for through traffic and those intending to use the I-480 East on ramp. The work is expected to take just a few days, first the signals will be updated followed by pavement marking. Rain in the forecast could potentially delay the pavement marking. Traffic will be open during the course of this update.

Let me know if you have any questions.
