Key Projects and Initiatives

Clackamas County is working with Metro and other jurisdictions in the Portland Metropolitan Area to develop a transportation funding strategy to strengthen and improve our regional transportation system.

Board approves moving forward with congestion relief, safety and local road paving projects funded by revenue from the new countywide vehicle registration fee, which is effective in 2020. The revenue, which will go into the Community Road Fund, will only be used on road projects in unincorporated areas of the county.

With seven transit service providers in Clackamas County, there are still large areas of the county with no transit service, and existing service varies in frequency, access and connectivity. The new plan will help guide future transit investments in the county.

See a list of our construction in progress or planned for 2020.

More than 30 transportation projects to improve safety and increase traffic flow in the Clackamas Regional Center for motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and transit riders.

Drive to Zero focuses on reducing injuries and fatalities on our roadways.

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.

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.
