Tell Multnomah County What You Need for County Roads, April 9 – 15

Monday, April 9, 2018

It’s not every day you can help Multnomah County plan the next 20 years of road improvements!

Every few years, Multnomah County updates a 20-year plan of roads to improve. Crosswalks and signals, guardrails, wider shoulders, turn lanes, bicycle and walking paths, and more — your voice can shape what’s built five, 10, and 20 years from now. Come share what you know about County roads and what you need from them.

  • Many more people live here now than 10 or 20 years ago, and more get around without a car.
  • Learn why and how the County updates the road plan. Look at displays and talk with hosts (if you attend in person).
  • Tell the County whether you agree with how it decides which road projects to add to the plan, and what it could do differently.
  • Tell the County what changes or new features you hope to see on its roads, and which of its current change ideas are most important to you.
  • Are these the right criteria to weigh transportation projects: Equity, safety, asset management, mobility, sustainability, and cost.
The online open house is available between now and April 15.

Which Roads Are County Roads?

Multnomah County Roads Map

County-maintained roads are mainly in three areas:

  • Rural parts of east and west Multnomah County
  • Urban pockets within the County but outside cities such as Portland and Gresham
  • Larger roads (called collectors and arterials) in and near Fairview, Troutdale, and Wood Village
  • Not bridges, which are maintained under a separate plan

On any of these three dates, you can attend the County’s public open-house meeting and share what’s important to you:
