Re-designing the roadway to improve safety and connectivity for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists along SE Linwood Avenue in northwest Clackamas County.
This project is in the design phase.
Updated: Aug. 26, 2020
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
Design: Under development through November 2021
Construction: November 2021 – November 2022
While the construction will impact traffic flow, the County will ensure that residents are able to access their homes during construction.
- Design phase -- initial design, public comment and behind the scenes coordination that is vital to any roadway project -- planned to last until November 2021.
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.
The total estimated project cost is $6 million. The North Clackamas Revitalization Area (NCRA) urban renewal district is funding the project.
