East Barlow Trail Road - Embankment Restoration
Project Description: The winter floods of 2011 have eroded the embankment that protects the East Barlow Trail Road adjacent to the Sandy River near milepost 6.0. With this project, Clackamas County will restore that embankment. Please see the location map below.
Status: The project has completed the 30% design milestone. Various alternatives were evaluated and a preferred alternative was selected. The preferred alternative will be discussed with the public at the Thursday, December 5 public meeting (see location information below). Final design activities, environmental permit applications and right of way activities will occur in 2014. There will also be a drill rig along the side of the roadway for a couple of days in late January or early February of 2014, which could result in traffic delays of up to 20 minutes.
Schedule: Construction start in the summer of 2015
