County proposes revisions to roadway standards
Clackamas County has drafted revisions and updates to its Roadway Standards and is seeking public comment on the proposed changes.
The deadline for public comment is Friday, Feb. 21, 2020, according to a press release from Clackamas County.
The Roadway Standards set specifications and guidelines for design and construction of public and private roadway improvements, per the county. They are intended to maximize safety, convenience, aesthetics and more.
Until now, these specifications and guidelines were last updated in 2018, according to the county.
The key proposed revisions include the following. They will add a requirement for a third party inspector for larger development and utility projects, change the definition of substantial completion for a subdivision, add requirements for traffic analysis to better define "safety," change the requirements for pavement restoration related to utility trenches and lastly add requirements for small cell/5G wireless facilities.
