The southwest corner of Montavilla is receiving an intersection upgrade. New curb ramps and traffic light poles, are being constructed at the corner of SE 76th Ave and SE Division Street.
The new traffic lights will open up the intersection with Mast Arm mounted lights. They can sit further back from the curb compared to the older Box Span traffic lights, that are currently used at this intersection. This project also changes the signal configuration. It is changing from a three way intersection to a four way intersection. SE 76th Ave does not cross Division Street directly. Instead, SE 76th aligns with a private driveway for new housing on the south side of Division. Changes to traffic control at this intersection will allow for those residents to enter the intersection in a controlled manner.
