"Good back way to get to the airport"

82nd avenue is a great way to get to the Portland Airport when highway 26 is all backed up (or if you hear that the 205 onramp has an accident or something going on). When I have to go to the airport in the late afternoon when all the commuter traffic is going on, it can be really crowded going through the tunnel going from hwy 84 to 205 and sometimes can take upwards of an hour just to get through that part of it!

82nd avenue is an exit off of hwy 84. Its about 3 miles down the freeway from the entrance of 84 on the right hand side. Once you make the exit you keep turning right until you are ON 82nd Avenue and then you just follow it all the way to Airport Way. It takes about 7 min from the freeway to Airport way (if you are going the 35 mph speed limit the entire way). It is a downtown street so you have stop lights at each block, but most of the time you get the green as there isnt alot of cross traffic. Late at night and early early morning you will see the street walkers and the street people out, but they dont bother with anyone who is stopped at the red lights. There are a couple of 'cheap' motels along the way and some fast food places - dominos and McDonalds, as well as a 7-11.

Theres a high school and a small park along the way, but I really wouldnt call it a 'nice neighborhood' at all. There have been some pretty horrendous crimes in the neighborhood, but because I only use it to get to the airport I dont really stop anywhere (other than at the gas station a couple of times to get gas as they are open really early in the morning and also stay open quite late at night).

Early in the morning the police dont tend to bother with people going a little bit faster than the speed limit, but I have noticed at dusk they will sit in the parking lot of the park and wait for speeding traffic. I would say generally its safe to go around 40./45 without a problem.
