Project Information
The Oregon Highway 224: Eagle Creek to Estacada project consistsed of two phases - beautification and paving.
The City of Estacada applied for and was awarded Transportation Enhancement funds for streetscape enhancements (beautification) in the downtown area.  ODOT’s Transportation Enhancement Program provides federal highway funds for projects that fit into four main groups: pedestrian and bicycle projects, historic preservation related to surface transportation, landscaping and scenic beautification, and environmental mitigation.  Local governments apply for Transportation Enhancement funds and they are awarded through a competitive process.
ODOT contractor Eagle Elsner completed work on the first phase of the project (beautification) in late 2009.  Project improvements within the City of Estacada from SE Second Avenue to SE Currin Street included:
• Converting the current striped median into a raised, planted median.

• Reconfiguring existing highway shoulders and sidewalks to include a standard-width bike lane and landscape strips with trees and plants.

• Installing new street lights and ADA-standard sidewalks. 
Phase two of the project (pavement preservation) began in May 2010 and most work was complete in November 2010.  This phase consistsed of repaving and striping Highway 224 from the Eagle Creek-Sandy Highway (milepost 17.9) to the Woodburn-Estacada Highway (milepost 23.4).
