Oregon’s Risk and Protection Framework
Effective April 9 through April 22, Clackamas Counties and Multnomah Counties, return to the High Risk level. Washington County remains in the Moderate Risk level. For guidance on activities - and associated health and safety protocols - review the Risk Level Guidance Chart.
On April 19, all Oregonians over the age of 16 will be eligible to sign up for a COVID-19 vaccine. Once eligible, people can find a clinic location and make an appointment through Clackamas County or Oregon Health Authority.
It's a very busy and exciting time for the Boones Ferry Project. Key takeaways:
- We're ahead of schedule, now expecting to complete construction this fall!
- The new Madrona Street signal will be activated in the next two weeks
- Medians = right turns only. U-turns will be permitted at Madrona and Bryant signals starting the week of April 26.
Demolition of the old City Hall Underway
Building demolition began on April 5 and is expected to last about four-six weeks.
While impacts to the community will be minimzed during Phase 2 (demolition of the old City Hall and construction of the upper parking lot and civic plaza.), some traffic changes will occur. In addition, parking around the site will be limited.
Phase 2 is anticipated to be completed by the end of August.
City Hall will open for walk-in traffic on April 19. Many services will still be conveniently available via phone, email or virtually.
With construction still underway, access to the new City Hall might be a bit confusing. To help, please take a look at the parking/access map.
To keep visitors and staff safe, all recommended safety protocols will be in place including capacity limits tied to the State’s risk level.
