Happy Valley transportation plan comments sought
You're invited to a virtual "open house" through Wednesday, Aug. 5, on a transportation project called the Columbia to Clackamas Corridor.
Also known as the C2C, the project hopes to tackle north-south travel in Gresham, Happy Valley and Clackamas County for walkers, bicyclists, cars and freight vehicles as the cities prepare for additional growth.
Led by the city of Gresham, C2C seeks to improve north-south travel on a proposed route that runs through Gresham along 181st Avenue, 182nd Avenue and 190th Avenue and then into Happy Valley.
"Improving this route will yield immediate, noticeable benefits for people driving, biking, walking and taking transit through some of the fastest-growing and most underserved communities in the metro area," said Jay Higgins, Gresham's associate transportation planner.
County and city officials recognize the frequent difficulty of regional north-south travel. The C2C Corridor project is working to set project priorities to ensure travel in the area east of I-205 will be more efficient, smoother and safer in coming years, according to project officials.
