OR 211: Pedestrian and Bike Improvements

Construction Phase

Region 1: Portland metro and Hood River County (Molalla, Clackamas)

ODOT, in partnership with the City of Molalla, is making pedestrian and bicycle improvements in Molalla along the north side of OR 211 (Woodburn-Estacada Highway) between Oregon 213 and North Hezzie Lane. This project will enhance safety, operations, and efficiency for people walking, biking, driving, rolling and using transit in the area.

Construction will include daytime and nighttime work from fall 2020 through summer 2021. Expect elevated noise and lighting during these periods. Work will occur along the highway and off the shoulder, and there will be temporary lane closures and flaggers directing traffic. During construction, signed and accessible temporary pedestrian and bicycle access routes will be provided west of Industrial Way. Watch for signs and follow flagger directions.

For nighttime noise concerns use the 24/7 nighttime noise hotline: 503-294-1356​


Construction is planned to begin in fall 2020 and will be completed in summer 2021.

OR 211 | between OR 213 and South Ona Way; Crossing at OR 211 and east side of North Hezzie lane

Cost and Funding

Project cost: $3,059,851.00, including funding from Keep Oregon Moving (House Bill 2017) and City of Molalla. 


​Currently, OR 211 between OR 213 and South Ona Way in Molalla lacks space for people walking and biking, causing them to use the narrow shoulder to access commercial services and schools between Molalla Market Center and downtown Molalla. This project addresses this critical safety need by providing a shared use path on the north side of OR 211 near the Safeway shopping center, Molalla Elementary and Molalla River Middle Schools, and other nearby community resources. The project also includes additional lighting at the pedestrian crossing on OR 211, on the east side of North Hezzie Lane, to increase visibility for travelers in the area.

 The project consists of several pedestrian and bike improvements, including:
  • Sidewalk between the Safeway shopping center (near OR 213) and the southwest corner of the dental clinic.
  • Separated 10-foot shared use path with 5-foot buffer space from highway between Industrial Way and South Ona Way.
  • New pedestrian bridge over Bear Creek.
  • Additional lighting at the pedestrian crossing on OR 211, on the east side of North Hezzie Lane.
  • New Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps.
