County road improvements coming to Wood Village

Multnomah County has a number of road projects coming to Wood Village, either in construction or in the design phase. Here’s a summary:

Construction in 2018

NE Sandy Blvd. Improvements (NE 230th to NE 238th)

Construction will start spring 2018 to convert a section of Sandy Blvd. in Wood Village to a modern urban street with turn lanes. It will include pavement and drainage improvements, new sidewalks and bike lanes, lighting, and enhancements to existing bus stops.

  • Schedule: Utilities relocation is currently in progress and the roadway construction is expected to begin in late spring through early summer of 2018.
  • Traffic: Two lanes of traffic will be maintained at most times. Flaggers will direct traffic on a single lane at times, and there may be brief closure of driveways, with notice, during paving.

In Design Phase

NE 238th Dr. Safety Improvements (NE Halsey St. to NE Glisan St.)

This project will make it easier for trucks to navigate the curve on this steep section of 238th Dr. in Wood Village. It will improve access for other modes of transportation, including pedestrians and bicyclists.

  • Traffic: The construction traffic plan will be developed during the design, which recently began.
  • Schedule: Design work began in late spring 2017 and will continue in 2018. Construction could begin in 2019.
