Public invited to Feb. 17 open house on the Monroe Neighborhood Street Design Plan to improve travel safety and accessibility

Clackamas County is working with the community to design improvements to Monroe Street, Thompson Road and connecting streets to increase safety and accessibility for all travelers – drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. The project includes development of a Safe Routes to Schools plan for Whitcomb Elementary School.

The public is invited to learn more about design plans under consideration at a public open house scheduled from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 17, in the cafeteria at Whitcomb Elementary School, 7400 SE Thompson Road.

A special presentation about the plan and design options will be presented at 6:45 p.m., but the public is welcome to drop in any time from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Participants will have the chance to comment on a variety of topics including:

Monroe Street is a key east-west route across Milwaukie and northwest Clackamas County, an important link between downtown Milwaukie and Clackamas Town Center, and a valuable connection between the MAX Orange Line and MAX Green Line. Stakeholder and technical advisory groups have been meeting with county staff and consultants to identify initial design options for the past six months.

For more information, members of the media and public may visit http://monroestreetplan.org/ or contact Project Manager Scott Hoelscher at ScottHoe@clackamas.us or 503-742-4524.
