2/17 open house: Monroe Neighborhood Street Design

Clackamas County & Milwaukie — the County is working with the community to design improvements to Monroe Street, Thompson Road and connecting streets to increase safety and accessibility for all travelers – drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists.

Monroe Street is a key east-west route across Milwaukie and northwest Clackamas County, an important link between downtown Milwaukie and Clackamas Town Center, and a valuable connection between the MAX Orange line and MAX Green line.
