Help Multnomah County create a long-range plan for road improvements.

Project Overview

Our region is changing quickly. Many more people live and drive here, and more get around without a car than ever before. Multnomah County is developing a long-range plan for improving its roads. This Roads Capital Improvement Plan (RCIP):

  • Helps the County know how much money (capital) is needed and how to get the most from that money.
  • Builds on work that’s already happened in our community.
  • Includes projects and priorities that our community has said are important through local planning efforts.

As a resident, you are the County’s eyes and ears. Maybe you or a loved one spends a lot of time in traffic — or walks, rides buses, rides a bike, and/or uses a mobility device. It’s time to share what you know about County roads and what you need from them.

Your voice can shape what gets built five, 10 and 20 years from now. See some examples of road improvements that started with public input.

Public Participation

In April of 2018 we asked the public for input on where improvements are needed to our roads and we asked for help deciding how to prioritize the improvements. Read a summary of what people said.

In February 2019 we held another round of public outreach to share and receive input on the prioritized list of improvements. Three open houses were held in Corbett, Sauvie Island and Wood Village. We also hosted an online open house.

In November 2019, we conducted our last round of public outreach including an open house on November 12 and an online open house that closed on November 30.  The in-person open house included a staff Roads Capital Improvement Plan open house presentation (874.5 KB).  The County Board is scheduled to vote on final approval of the plan on January 23, 2020.
