Re-designing the roadway to improve safety and connectivity for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists along SE Linwood Avenue in northwest Clackamas County.
Updated: Nov. 22, 2023
Improve Linwood Avenue in unincorporated Clackamas County from SE Monroe Street to SE Johnson Creek Boulevard by:
- Completing connections for sidewalks and bicycle lanes on both sides of SE Linwood Avenue
- Updating stormwater facilities to improve stormwater management.
To improve safety throughout the corridor, each side of Linwood Ave will include:
- An 11-foot travel lane for motorized vehicles
- A 5-foot landscape strip with grass and trees
- A 10-foot shared pedestrian/bicycle path
Pre-construction work: Complete
Construction: March 2023 – April 2024
While construction will impact traffic flow, the county will ensure that residents are able to continue to get to their homes during construction.
- East side pedestrian path nearly complete.
- West side pedestrian path under construction.
- Linwood-Johnson Creek Blvd and Linwood-King intersection signals are being upgraded.
- Due to weather, final paving and striping won’t occur until early spring. Most work will be complete by end of January.
- Pedestrian bridge installed (video)
The many sections of SE Linwood Avenue without sidewalks or bike lanes create unsafe conditions for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists. This project will align with pending improvements by the City of Milwaukie along the southern portion of SE Linwood Avenue inside the city limits. Once both projects are completed, the entire SE Linwood Avenue corridor will be safer and easier to travel for everyone.
Construction cost $6.8 million, funded by the North Clackamas Revitalization Area (NCRA) urban renewal district.
