What to Expect
Every few years, Multnomah County updates a 20-year plan of roads to improve. Crosswalks and signals, guardrails, wider shoulders, turn lanes, bicycle and walking paths, and more — your voice can shape what’s built five, 10 and 20 years from now. Come share what you know about County roads and what you need from them.
- Learn why and how the County updates the road plan. Look at displays and talk with hosts (if you attend in person).
- Tell the County whether you agree with how it decides which road projects to add to the plan, and what it could do differently.
- Tell the County what changes or new features you hope to see on its roads, and which of its current change ideas are most important to you.
Which Kind of Road Projects Are Included?
The Roads Capital Improvement Plan is about improving roads with added features such as guardrails or wider shoulders. Maintaining roads, such as filling potholes, has a separate plan and separate funding.
Projects included in the RCIP could include:
- Widening roads for more lanes (lanes to travel in, or turn lanes)
- Widening shoulders for people walking and biking
- Adding signals or other projects to make intersections easier and safer
- Multi-use paths
- Culvert replacements
- Bridge improvements
