Clackamas County to install all-way stop at Dryland/Heinz Road intersection to increase safety

Clackamas County will convert the intersection of South Dryland Road and South Heinz Road from a two-stop to an all-way stop by adding stop signs on Dryland. The new stop signs will be installed in early June.

No road closures are expected, though there may be brief traffic delays during the installation. The intersection is in western Clackamas County, northwest of Molalla and southeast of Canby.

The additional stop signs are designed to increase safety at the intersection that has had three crashes in the last 10 years, including two with serious injuries. County traffic engineers analyzed the intersection’s geometry, visibility, vehicle speeds and safety history before recommending a four-way stop.

The safety upgrade, which is expected to cost about $3,000, includes stop signs, advance warning signs, pavement stop bars and "stop ahead" legends on Dryland.
