Barlow Road to close June 30-September 1 for road improvements

Clackamas County will close Barlow Road at Zimmerman Road from June 30 - September 1, 2014, to improve safety at the Barlow/Zimmerman intersection. The closure will be in effect 24 hours a day beginning at 7 a.m., June 30 and ending by 5 p.m., September 1.

The road will be completely closed to all vehicles, including local traffic and emergency vehicles. Local residents, emergency vehicles, garbage vehicles, postal vehicles and schools buses will be required to use the posted detour route.

This project will improve sight distance, reduce crashes, and generally increase safety and traffic flow at the intersection by reconstructing and realigning 1,400 feet of Barlow Road, minor reconstruction of Zimmerman Road, widening shoulders, laying back cut slopes and lowering the road’s vertical profile. The project is funded by the federal High Risk Rural Roads Program.
