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.
