Region 1 ADA Curb Ramp Upgrades – City of Molalla

Construction Phase

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


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We are bringing sidewalk curb ramps into compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act  (ADA) accessibility standards on OR 211 in Molalla. Construction is taking place in two phases during 2021 and 2022. ​


Impacts

Construction Impacts

No traffic impacts are expected the week of December 5, 2022.

​​__________________________________________________________________

The traffic impacts should be relatively minor.  This work will cause intermittent lane, shoulder and sidewalk closures on OR 211 and on intersecting local streets. All roads will remain open. We will provide ADA-accessible pedestrian detours around the work zones and maintain access for customers of adjacent businesses. Some shoulder on-street parking around corners directly adjacent to the construction may be temporarily impacted. We will coordinate with affected property and business owners as needed.

Work is expected to take place during the day, unless a temporary lane closure on a highway is required. In this case, work may take place at night to minimize traffic impacts. For any noise-related concerns associated with any nighttime work, contact the 24/7 noise hotline at 503-276-7810.

Schedule

Phase 1 construction was completed in August 2021. Phase 2 began spring 2022 and anticipated to be finished by October. 

Details

About

We are replacing existing, non-compliant sidewalk curb ramps at non-signalized intersections along OR 211 (West Main Street and East Main Street) between Ridings Avenue and Mathias Road.

Phase 1 work​ began in May 2021 and was completed in August 2021. Phase 2 work began spring 2022. Generally, it takes 1-2 weeks to complete work on an individual corner, with construction on several corners happening concurrently. However, only one corner per intersection will be under construction at a time in order to better maintain access to nearby businesses and services.

The ODOT ADA PROGRAM is working to bring more than 25,000 curb ramps throughout Oregon into compliance with Americans with Disabilities (ADA) standards. The effort was launched in response to a formal complaint from the Association of Oregon Centers for Independent Living (AOCIL). Together we reached an agreement to improve curb ramps and pedestrian signals along all state highways. We are committed to new standards for accessible routes through work zones, outreach and addressing public concerns. Everyone who uses sidewalks along our highways will benefit from this commitment and the improvements we make to the curb ramps.​
