Motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians to benefit from more than 30 projects planned in Clackamas Regional Center area

On April 11, the Board of County Commissioners approved the county Development Agency plan to move forward with design and construction of nearly $26 million of transportation improvements in the Clackamas Regional Center area.

The improvements will all be in the southern portion of the regional center, including Harmony Road/Sunnyside Road from west of SE 82nd Avenue to east of I-205, and along SE 82nd Avenue from south of Sunnybrook Boulevard to north of Sunnyside Road (see map below).

More than 30 projects – all part of the Clackamas Regional Center Mobility Improvements project – will improve traffic flow and safety for all types of travel, including cars and trucks, bicyclists, pedestrians and transit riders. Funding is from tax increment revenue raised by the Clackamas Town Center Urban Renewal District.

The projects were selected after a year-long process of reviewing needed transportation projects already identified in previous studies, including the Transportation System Plan, Clackamas Regional Center Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan, and Clackamas Connections Project. The project team consulted with the public, businesses and technical experts to help determine which projects would result in the most safety and travel benefits for the larger community.

Project design will take place throughout 2017, with construction planned from 2018-20. There will be numerous opportunities for area residents and property owners to learn more about and comment on specific project design.

Improvements will include widened roads and intersections, new bike and pedestrian paths and crossings, added bus stops, and improved street lighting and drainage. Read the complete list of the selected projects.

For more information, members of the media and public may contact Project Manager Dave Queener at 503-742-4322.
