Location

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. 

Benefits

OR 211 between OR 213 and South Ona Way in Molalla once lacked 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 addressed 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 installed 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 built several pedestrian and bike improvements, including:
  • A new sidewalk between the Safeway shopping center (near OR 213) and the southwest corner of the dental clinic.
  • A separated 10-foot shared use path with 5-foot buffer space from highway between Industrial Way and South Ona Way.
  • A 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.
