Broadway Street Update – February 25, 2015

 

We are one month into construction on the Broadway Streetscape Project – we’ve made it ¼ of the way through! Below are helpful and interesting tidbits about the project.

 

There is a  new project info sheet and images of the design. These are now available at City Hall or by opening the following links:

  • The project extends to the north side  of 2nd Ave on Broadway (the base of the hill), so  closure of Broadway across 2nd Ave must occur at certain points. It will be open as much as possible.
  • We will continue to keep 3rd Ave and/or 4th Ave open as much as possible. Before each weekend the safety of opening east-west streets is evaluated.
  • Off-street public parking is available in the lot on the SW corner of 2nd Ave and Broadway. There are signs at each parking lot entrance.
  • Save the date for an end-of-project celebration on Broadway Street late afternoon and evening of Friday June 5th. Kudos to the Estacada Development Association for event planning!
  • Reminder: The road closure is approved through April 22nd and we  expect the project to be over at the end of May 2015.

 

Downtown is the heart of Estacada with over 40 businesses. All businesses are open during construction, please come down to support them. Visit First Friday! Get help with your taxes! Grab a lunch!

 

Thank you to the community volunteers who donated countless hours to this project!

The Broadway Streetscape is funded by the Estacada Urban Renewal Agency.

BROADWAY STREETSCAPE PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Broadway Streetscape Project will reconstruct all public amenities on Broadway Street from HWY 211/224 to SW 2nd Ave.  On December 29th 2014, the Estacada Urban Renewal Agency Board voted to award the construction contract for the project to Tapani Construction. The design includes undergrounding power lines, colored paver angled parking, raised planters that double as benches, banner poles, public art, wider sidewalks, and other amenities. The construction team will meet the week of January 12th regarding the construction schedule including road closures. At this time road closures are not expected until February 2015. Engineering firm, Currin-McLeod, will manage construction administration and Clackamas County Arts Alliance will manage the project’s public art process.

 

There will be ads in Estacada News throughout the project, which will include information on temporary parking locations and downtown businesses. Businesses will remain open during construction, with the exception of Fearless Brewing, which will be closed January 12-22. Sidewalks will also largely remain open and ADA accessible. If you would like to be on the project’s email update list contact Terra Wilcoxson, Economic Development Manager.

 

The project is the first major step in implementing the Estacada Downtown Riverside Area Plan (EDRAP). Thank you to the outreach/advisory committee, and the community members that provided input into this project. All involved in decision-making strove to have this project reflect community input and Estacada’s long-term goals. Your continued support is appreciated as the project moves into the construction phase.
