Road Projects to Improve Safety posted on 06/30/2023

By Ty Walker

A pair of major road projects, designed to address bicyclist and pedestrian safety, are planned in the Mount Hood area.

Clackamas County engineers are targeting summer 2026 to break ground on the Welches Road safety improvement project. The estimated $3.4 million major construction project is projected to take a year for completion, in summer 2027.

The project will add sidewalks and paved shoulders along Welches Road, between Highway 26 and Birdie Lane. Paid for by the Community Road Fund and System Development Charges, it is designed to address pedestrian and bicycling safety concerns.

Lane closures and detours may be needed during construction.
A $2 million project lies west of Sandy along Southeast 362nd Avenue from Skogan Road to OR 211. Southeast 362nd Avenue has narrow, steep shoulders that pose a danger to motorists and cyclists. Plans call for adding paved shoulders and other safety improvements.
Construction dates have not been determined. Advertising for construction proposals will go out in the fall.
Rolling single lane closures and detours may be needed during construction.
