Another project begins

The 187th Avenue project is about to begin, with demolition of the north part of the Rockwood Community Office building leading off work that will build a new street connection from 187th and Stark to 188th and Burnside across the east end of former Fred Meyer site (the southern portion of the building used by Gresham Police will remain as is). When it’s complete, this new street will provide a much safer direct connection between the Rockwood MAX station and the neighborhood to the south of Stark, complete with a new signal at 187th and Stark, which should reduce much of the current conflict between vehicles and pedestrians on that stretch of Stark. Construction area map here.

Project Open House, Nov 17th 6PM

While much of the work will take place entirely on the former Fred Meyer site, there will be intermittent traffic impacts on Stark Street near 187th. Staff are working closely with nearby businesses and residents regarding project schedule and scheduled lane closures, etc. A Project Open House is scheduled for 6:00 pm on November 17 at the Rockwood Community Office.
