Oregon Highway 224 – Clackamas Highway Safety Project
Project Description: This project will improve visibility for travelers, as well as make road conditions safer along OR 224 at two intersections (Southeast 197th Avenue and Southeast 232nd Drive). In 2015, ODOT will focus on the intersection of Southeast 197th Avenue, realigning OR 224 to prevent crashes, removing trees and reusing them in stream restoration projects, and widening the shoulder to provide room for breakdowns and cyclists.
