August PAC Meeting Update

The August 16th meeting of the Project Advisory Committee meeting resulted in a number of significant streetscape materials decisions along with agreement on how to proceed with the Quarry Road intersection. Quarry Road will be realigned as best as possible to improve sight lines for traffic entering Boones Ferry Road. There will continue to be a landscaped island with a neighborhood sign that provides a pedestrian refuge when crossing the street. Streetscape decisions included selection of light pole type (including the base, fixtures and mounting bracket location), sidewalk scoring pattern and pavers at trees, and expanded sidewalk area finishes and pedestrian button pole locations. A discussion of signalized intersection treatments reaffirmed that crosswalks should be highlighted with concrete. The decision of whether to make the entire intersection concrete or leave it asphalt was tabled until the next meeting.

The next PAC meeting is scheduled for Tuesday September 20, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in Lake Oswego City Council Chambers.
