SW 2nd Ave will stay open to traffic.

What to expect?

  • Temporary public parking in the lot on the northwest corner of SW 2nd Ave and Zobrist St.

  • Sidewalks/Boardwalks open for front door business access
  • Main St or 2nd Ave to be the best ways to enter downtown from Hwy 211/224

Thank you to the community volunteers who donated countless hours to this project! It is the result of community input.

ATTENTION

The Forest Service has informed the City that due to the 36 Pit Fire there will be extra sediment washing into the Clackamas River in the next several months due to winter rains. This will cause the City to spend more time and chemicals preparing it to go into the system and the reservoirs. We encourage you to use best practices for water conservation, particularly as you notice “color” in the river.  Water conservation and stored water use during this time will give operators more time to refill the reservoirs and can help save money on chemicals.

BROADWAY STREETSCAPE PROJECT UPDATE

The Broadway Streetscape Project will reconstruct all public amenities on Broadway Street from HWY 211/224 to SW 2nd Ave.  On December 29th 2014, the Estacada Urban Renewal Agency Board voted to award the construction contract for the project to Tapani Construction. The design includes undergrounding power lines, colored paver angled parking, raised planters that double as benches, banner poles, public art, wider sidewalks, and other amenities. The construction team will meet the week of January 12th regarding the construction schedule including road closures. At this time road closures are not expected until February 2015. Engineering firm, Currin-McLeod, will manage construction administration and Clackamas County Arts Alliance will manage the project’s public art process.

 

There will be ads in Estacada News throughout the project, which will include information on temporary parking locations and downtown businesses. Businesses will remain open during construction, with the exception of Fearless Brewing, which will be closed January 12-22. Sidewalks will also largely remain open and ADA accessible. If you would like to be on the project’s email update list contact Terra Wilcoxson, Economic Development Manager.

 

The project is the first major step in implementing the Estacada Downtown Riverside Area Plan (EDRAP). Thank you to the outreach/advisory committee, and the community members that provided input into this project. All involved in decision-making strove to have this project reflect community input and Estacada’s long-term goals. Your continued support is appreciated as the project moves into the construction phase.
