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.
Transportation Engineering

The intersection of SE Amisigger Road and Hwy 224 (Clackamas Hwy) is an intersection with high volumes of traffic located east of Barton in a rural area, with a stop sign on SE Amisigger Road. Travelers attempting to turn east or west from SE Amisigger Road onto Hwy 224 during peak traffic periods can experience long wait times.

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
Bear Creek Bridge Drone View
Replacing the existing bridge on Canby Marquam Highway over Bear Creek.
Transportation Engineering
Although there are no immediate safety concerns related to the stability of the bridge or the roadway, the Bear Creek Bridge in the Molalla area is structurally deficient. This project will replace the bridge and improve the roadside shoulders along S Molalla Avenue from Sawtell Road to the Molalla City limits, just south of W 7th Street. 
Transportation Engineering

V

Transportation Engineering
An existing intersection at Victory Road and Forsythe Road, south of Cliff View Drive, had limited site distance and experienced periodic crashes. Recent development near the intersection created significant changes. The County and developer previously negotiated an agreement for the developer to dedicate funds and the necessary right of way to realign the road at the intersection and significantly improve the site distance. Nearly 1000 LF of new roadway alignment was constructed, including excavation, pavement, stormwater, guardrail and signing efforts. Additional scope was added to include improvements made along Forsythe Road, including additional embankment, a guardrail run with terminal end pieces, and improvements to the vertical curve in order to close the existing Victory Road's access to Forsythe Road and open a new access approximately 300 feet to the west.
