Rural County Sign Installation Project

One way that has been proven to decrease traffic crashes is to post safety signage alerting travelers to changing conditions ahead. The county has received a grant from ODOT to install over 2,500 curve and stop ahead warning signs throughout unincorporated Clackamas County to improve safety on our roads.

Status: In construction

Schedule: May 2021 – Aug. 2022

Updated: March 16, 2022

Crash reductions associated with addition of curve warning signs (as compared to curves with no curve warning signs), and stop ahead warning signs are as follows: 

  • Curve Warning Signs with Speed: 13% reduction in all fatal and injury causing crashes
  • Chevrons: 20–35% reduction in fatal and injury causing crashes
  • Intersection Warning Signs with Street Name: 22% reduction in overall crashes; 35% reduction in right-angle crashes
  • Stop Ahead Signs: 35% reduction in angle crashes
  • Double Stop Signs: 11% reduction in overall crashes; 55% reduction in angle crashes

The traffic safety team has assessed and determined proper speeds to post at each road segment where curve warning signs will be installed at along the following roads:
