Transportation Engineering
We are responsible for maintaining the integrity and safety of 1,400 miles of County roads and 180 bridges.

A

Transportation and Development
Two feet standing on tactile pavement
The plan identifies barriers that impede access for people with disabilities to county roadways, and includes the results from a survey of county transportation facilities (more than 4,500 curb ramps, traffic signals and pedestrian signals) and extensive public outreach to learn about accessibility barrier concerns and priorities from people with disabilities.

B

Parks
Barton
Clackamas County Parks is teaming up with Metro and other key stakeholders to create a master plan that addresses public outdoor recreation needs for Barton Park and its associated properties. From expanding park amenities to easing the flow of traffic onsite and in surrounding areas, there are many changes in store that will benefit the community, neighborhood and park users.
Transportation Engineering
Clackamas County received State Funded Local Project Program funds to replace the existing bridge on Canby Marquam Highway over Bear Creek. The existing bridge, built in 1960, is showing signs of decay as a result of heavy truck traffic. The bridge is considered functionally obsolete (narrow) and structurally deficient, with a sufficiency rating of 27.2. The bridge is composed of undersized timber members that have shear and flexure damage, which were temporary repaired until the bridge can be replaced. The asphalt pavement wearing surface requires constant repair due to the bridge vibrating and shaking when trucks travel on the bridge.

C

Transportation Engineering
New Era and Central Point Road
The intersection of Central Point Road and New Era Road has a high ranking in the Safety Priority Index System (SPIS) list. There have been a number of crashes including some fatal and serious injury crashes at the intersection. This project will realign Central Point Road along the northbound and southbound approaches to New Era Road. This will eliminate the intersection skew, and improve the sight distance of drivers stopped at the intersection.
Housing Authority
Clackamas Heights building
The Clackamas Heights Master Plan will transform a 16 acre, 100 unit public housing neighborhood built in the 1940s into a 300 unit mixed income community. An extensive community engagement process will help to determine the final design and amenities that will be constructed on the site.
Development Agency
CRC
Southeast Sunnyside Road between the Clackamas Town Center and Clackamas Promenade will see construction improvements that will reduce traffic congestion and improve transit, walking and biking opportunities.
Transportation Engineering

Create safe pedestrian and bicycle connections between the Clackamas Regional Center Max Green Line light rail station and major area employers and services by working with the community to identify and prioritize safe pedestrian and bicycle connections in the area.
Housing Authority
Clayton Mohr Commons Concept Art
Clayton Mohr Commons will provide housing for veterans at or below 30% of the area median income. The 24-unit, fully subsidized project, will serve chronically homeless and severely low-income veterans and their families. The site is near community amenities like transit, grocery stores and health care providers.
County Courthouse
Courthouse concept design
Factoring in population growth, the significant safety risks, and functional impediments associated with the existing courthouse including a lack of adequate jury assembly space and secured access for defendants and witnesses, replacement of the courthouse is a wise investment.

D

Damascus Roads
When the city of Damascus disincorporated on July 16, 2016, the responsibility and the funding for the area’s transportation system was returned to Clackamas County.

H

Housing Authority
Hillside Master Plan concept design
A grant funded planning project that will envision the future for this 22 acre public housing community.

J

Transportation Engineering

Enhanced bicycle and pedestrian improvements will also provide safe routes and important connectivity to Jennings Lodge and Candy Lane elementary schools.

L

Transportation Engineering
Stabilize Lolo Pass Road by extending the retaining wall and preserve the road surface by adding two inches of pavement from Hwy 26 to Muddy Fork Road.

M

Transportation Engineering
Monroe Neighborhood Street Design Plan
The goal of the plan is to create a neighborhood street that improves safety for all modes of travel (walking, bicycling, and driving), with a special emphasis on pedestrians and cyclists.

O

Transportation and Development
Clackamas County is leading a study to determine if it might be feasible to build a pedestrian/bicycle bridge across the Willamette River between unincorporated Oak Grove and the City of Lake Oswego.
Housing Authority
Oregon City View Manor
Oregon City View Manor is a 22-acre Public Housing community with 100 units. Built in 1962, the Housing Authority will seek to sell the majority of the property because zoning and geography mean there are few opportunities to redevelop. HACC is planning to retain 4-5 acres to build new housing on the property.

P

Planning and Zoning
Map of the Park Avenue Project
The McLoughlin Area Plan Implementation Team (MAP-IT) and Clackamas County are working with the community to create updated land use development and design standards for commercial areas within ½ mile of the light rail station at Park Avenue and McLoughlin Boulevard in Oak Grove, just south of the city of Milwaukie.

R

Transportation Maintenance
Workers paving a road on a summer day.
Our 186 bridges are inspected every 2 years and through those inspections we sometimes find repair and maintenance work that needs to be done to preserve the bridge structure and keep it safe for travelers. That work often includes bridge scour projects, either removing excess soil from stream channels or replacing soil around foundations that has been washed away during high water events.
Housing Authority
Rosewood Station concept art
Rosewood Station will provide housing for those at or below 60% area median income.

Transportation Engineering
The Clackamas County Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program helps create safe walking and bicycling conditions for K-12 students.
Transportation Engineering
Three workers repairing the bridge
Replace the existing one-lane bridge with a new two-lane bridge. The current bridge, built in 1958, is reaching the end of its functional life and is weight-limited. The 18-month construction project includes building a temporary detour bridge, removing the old bridge, building the new bridge and then removing the detour bridge.
Transportation Engineering
Pave two inches of asphalt, adjust guardrail and road striping along 2 miles of Salmon River Road from Hwy 26 to Welches Road to provide a smoother ride and preserve access to Salmon Huckleberry Wilderness area.
Transportation Engineering
Cars on SE 90th Avenue
SE 90th Avenue will be reconstructed between SE Monterey Ave and SE Causey Ave. SE 90th, adjacent to the Clackamas Town Center, is a local road lined with apartments between SE Monterey Ave and SE Causey Ave. The concrete roadway is in poor condition with substantial cracking in many of the concrete panels. Several of the concrete panels are crumbling and require continuous ongoing maintenance to repair.
Transportation Engineering
Clackamas County has received Federal Emergency Relief Program (ERP) funds to stabilize the roadway and slope on South End Road at Milepost 3.8 (near Coffee Creek). The road was damaged in March 2017 as a result of heavy rains. A state emergency declaration, which included Clackamas County, was signed by the governor that allows Clackamas County to be eligible for the federal funding.
Transportation Engineering
Widening Stafford Rd to add bike lanes and realigning intersections at Johnson Rd and Childs Rd. Adding southbound left-turn lane at Johnson Rd and a signal or roundabout at Childs Rd. 

T

Transportation Engineering
The project team, working with a Public Advisory Committee (PAC) and a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), analyzed current walking and bicycling conditions.
County Administration
Pods at the Veterans Village
The purpose of this project is to provide decent, safe and sanitary shelter for our veterans. As a county and community, we must be responsive to the needs of our residents. Helping people live independent, productive lives benefits the community as a whole.
Transportation Engineering
Construction on a road
Construction projects involving roads, bridges, sidewalks, and more in Clackamas County.
Transportation and Development
The TSP reflects all relevant national, state and regional transportation and planning requirements, and provides policies, guidelines and projects to meet transportation needs for residents, businesses and visitors in unincorporated Clackamas County for 20 years.
