Highway 213 Jughandle Project

PROJECT DETAILS

Modified Travel Routes 

New routes scheduled to go into effect on August 27, 2012 

The Jughandle Project is modifying some local travel routes to improve the flow of traffic and reduce the risk of accidents. The new jughandle roadway configuration replaces problematic left turns across Hwy 213 with routes that loop underneath the highway. This helps to reduce conflict points, dangerous vehicle cross weaving, and the wait time at the Hwy 213 traffic signal. Right-turning traffic is kept flowing through the use of dedicated right-turn lanes, a roundabout, and vehicle sensor technology at the signalized intersections.

Travel to and from Clackamas River Drive and Washington Street
A median barrier on Hwy 213 prevents left turns and straight movements across the highway at the intersection with Clackamas River Drive and Prairie Schooner Way (formerly Washington Street).

Travel to and from I-205 
There are no changes to the travel routes to and from southbound I-205 at Hwy 213. Left turns can be made to and from the southbound I-205 ramps.

Routes to and from northbound I-205 are not
 altered for motorists traveling on Hwy 213 south of the interchange.

A traffic separator on the Hwy 213 center line prevents left turns and straight movements across the highway at the northbound I-205 ramps.
Motorists traveling between northbound I-205 and points north of the Hwy 213/I-205 interchange (e.g., Pope Lane or the pedestrian bridge to High Rocks) must use new routes (click link for map).
