The Powell-Division Transit and Development Project is planning for more reliable, frequent bus transit service that moves more people more quickly between important destinations in Portland and Gresham. It also is looking at opportunities for making even more vibrant, healthy neighborhoods along the route.

Gresham is working with partners including Metro, TriMet, City of Portland, Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), and Multnomah County to ensure that land-use and transit alternatives consider and meet the needs of Gresham and bring key investments to improve Gresham’s quality of life.

Gresham also is studying station opportunity areas to identify community interests and develop strategies the City can use to encourage those desired changes. These strategies will be documented in the action plan.

Transportation and economic development plan being discussed for Gresham, Troutdale, Fairview and Wood Village.

Metro regional government is offering two community forums, March 13 & 14, to learn about and participate in the East Metro Connections Plan.

Investing in Gresham and the East Metro area
Federal and state money is shrinking, and when the region makes difficult decisions about who gets it, they reward those cities that agree on near- and long-term priorities. Through an effort called East Metro Connections Plan, Gresham and other east county cities are developing that shared agreement.

Metro will be advocating for federal and state transportation money to make our area more attractive to employers while protecting our neighborhoods, making our roads safer and promoting our treasured natural areas.

Many of you have participated in this effort already. Your input helped identify problems and shaped the solutions Metro is considering. But your role isn’t over. Decisions will be made this spring about how investments will be prioritized. Metro want you to weigh in to tell them what is most important to you.

Rockwood Alert: Major Traffic Improvements Underway 188th & Burnside, Expect Delays: Oct 26-Nov 10, 2011. Info Here!

SE 188/187th Street Realignment

Construction crews are entering the final phases of the street realignment project at 188th and Burnside in Rockwood. This realignment will create a safer connection between 187th and 188th Avenues for vehicles and improve pedestrian safety along East Burnside and SE Stark Streets between 185th and 190th Avenues.

To safely switch over the signals at the intersection of 188th and Burnside, beginning October 26, 2011 vehicle movements will be limited to those that do not cross the MAX light rail tracks. This work is expected to last approximately two weeks. See map (below the break) for complete details on the traffic impacts.

Bad weather may postpone or increase the time frame of these traffic improvements.

Help conduct counts or surveys on trail & sidewalk use in Gresham as part of a nationwide effort

Be counted!
Even if you don't volunteer, please show-up and be counted at one of the locations below if you bike, walk, skateboard, or rollerblade on the trails or streets in the Gresham area. Ed.

Volunteers needed

Gresham is participating in a nationwide effort to document the number of people biking, walking, skateboarding, and rollerblading on trails and local streets. As part of that effort, City staff is asking for volunteers to help conduct counts and surveys.

The counts will be conducted September 14th, 15th, and 16th from 7 to 9 a.m. and 5 to 7 p.m., and September 18th and 19th from 9 to 11 a.m. The City has identified 18 locations where counts will be taken:

  • Marine Dr & I85th Ave
  • 181st Ave & Halsey St
  • Halsey St & 201st Ave
  • Gresham Fairview Trail & Burnside Ave
  • 181st Ave & Division St

  • 181st & Glisan St
  • 181st & Stark St

Click here for a map of these locations.

Count or Survey?

Volunteers can choose to conduct counts or conduct a short survey. The surveys well help provide information on trip distance, why people use trails, and what types of trials they prefer.

Your participation in this effort will help the City gain valuable information on walking and bicycling:

  • Baseline data: How many people are biking? Walking? Where? What are the volume trends from year to year?
  • What is the return on investment in bike lanes, trails and sidewalks: How many people use bike/pedestrian facilities after they are built?
  • How can safety be improved: Certain locations have high numbers of bike/pedestrian crashes, but what is the risk exposure rate? Is it high or low relative to bike/pedestrian volumes? How should safety improvements be prioritized?
