Community planning for a vibrant, healthy, prosperous future
Clackamas County, working with the Oregon Department of Transportation, Metro and Happy Valley, is asking the community to envision a Sunrise Corridor Community where people can thrive. The future of the Sunrise Corridor Community depends on planning for the needs of the entire area — residents, businesses, travelers, wildlife and the environment.
Through this project, the Sunrise Corridor Community will work with the county and others to develop a shared vision and recommend actions for land use, housing, community and environmental health, transportation and other infrastructure investments necessary to support a thriving future for residents, businesses and travelers.
It is one of the busiest freight distribution centers in the region and state, and is bisected by Oregon Highway 212.

The Sunrise area has been the focus of many efforts over the years to plan and construct an expanded roadway, often referred to as the "Sunrise Corridor". Planning for infrastructure improvements in the Sunrise Corridor began in the 1980s and has continued on and off ever since. There have also been a number of other studies in the past decades that covered all or a portion of the Sunrise Corridor Community Area.
With this study, we are using a community health and equity framework to improve and build upon past studies. This project is working with Sunrise Corridor communities, businesses and stakeholders to identify a vision that helps the community thrive.
|The Clackamas to Columbia Corridor Plan (C2C), which included studying the area around 172nd and Rock Creek Junction in the Sunrise area, was completed.
|Sunrise Phase 1 improvements completed to reduce congestion and improve access for freight to reach I-205 through the Clackamas Industrial Area. The 2.5-mile highway connects I-205 and highways 212 and 224 between I-205 and 122nd Ave.
|Sunrise Corridor Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) outlined a preferred alternative to address congestion and safety
|ODOT completed the final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on the first part of the Sunrise project, but halts work because of a lack of construction funds
|Clackamas County Board of Commissioners approved a preferred alternative – central alignment within the Lawnfield/Mather Road area and southern alignment around Damascus.
|Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) released Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS), an important and required step in moving the project forward.
|Sunrise Corridor first called out as a project of state importance by being added to the Oregon Department of Transportation's Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) list.
