Walk Bike Clackamas Plan: Improving walking and biking for everyone

The goal of the Walk Bike Clackamas Plan is to create a comprehensive, long-term vision to improve opportunities for people walking and biking as they travel and enjoy recreational areas of the county.

The goal of the Walk Bike Clackamas Plan is to create a comprehensive, long-term vision to improve opportunities for people walking and biking in Clackamas County.

Do you like to walk, bike or roll? Tell us where and why. Take our survey.

What will the plan do?

The plan will:

  • Establish infrastructure priorities, such as where to build new bike lanes and sidewalks, which will help the county apply for future grants and other funding opportunities. 
  • Identify programs that increase safety and convenience of walking and biking (like Safe Routes to School).
  • Update active transportation polices and adopt performance measures so we can track progress during implementation
  • Serve as the pedestrian and bicycle transportation elements of the county’s updated Transportation System Plan (TSP)

Project area

The project applies to all urban and rural unincorporated areas of Clackamas County, and will coordinate with cities in the county.

Why do we need a new plan?

  • Things have changed
    Since the last update in 2003, our transportation system has drastically changed. projects have been built and policy priorities are different.
  • Oregon law
    State requires counties to develop balanced transportation systems and regularly update their bicycle and pedestrian plans.
  • Climate goals
    The Board of County Commissioners has set a goal for the county to be carbon neutral by 2050, which means balancing our greenhouse gas emissions to capture as much as we emit. Updating our Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan will help reach this goal.
  • New mobility options
    Planning for opportunities like bike share, e-bikes, cargo bikes and other advancements were not included in the last plan. To increase accessibility and safety in Clackamas County, emerging technologies could be integrated into our multi-modal transportation system.
