2022 Pathways Program

The City is creating several new pathways to connect neighborhoods with local elementary schools and parks. Each pathway will provide critical missing connections linking neighborhoods to schools, business districts, and recreation areas. This project is part of the City and Council goal of providing safe pedestrian facilities that encourage walking, rolling, and bicycling while reducing vehicle trips.

Project Details

Improvements are to include new pathways & stormwater upgrades for four new pathway connections: 

  • Douglas Way Pathway – from Quarry Road to Boones Ferry Road
  • Boca Ratan Pathway – from Bonniebrae Drive to Atwater Road
  • Hallinan Street Pathway – from Hemlock Street to Cherry Lane
  • Lanewood Street/Douglas Circle Pathway – from Boones Ferry Road to Twin Fir Road


  • Planning & Design: Spring ‒ Fall 2022
  • Construction: Summer 2023

This pathway project is identified as an important component in the City’s Transportation System Plan (TSP) and is funded under the current Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). The scope of the 2022 Pathways Project was selected by the Transportation Advisory Board. 


Project Updates: 

May 24, 2022

Thank you for your feedback and attending the meetings. The questionnaires are now closed. We appreciate your participation and will incorporate the feedback we have received into the next stages of the design. Stay tuned for more information!

May 2022

The City is committed to working with neighbors along planned pathway streets and within the neighborhoods, to gather input and concerns to aid with the initial phase of the design. The City and project team is holding four focused discussions to listen to and learn from neighbors. 

Four meetings will be held on:

  • Tuesday, May 17 for Hallinan Street Pathway
  • Wednesday, May 18 for Douglas Way Pathway
  • Wednesday, May 18 for Lanewood Street Pathway
  • Thursday, May 19 for Boca Ratan Pathway

We encourage neighbors to attend these meetings. Your early input and ideas will help us develop concepts before we move forward with the design work in the coming months. At the meetings, we will provide a map showing existing information such as property lines, locations of trees, driveways, underground utilities, and other features in the right-of-way on a map.


We also have online questionnaires available for neighbors to complete and share feedback. Your feedback and comments will ensure we have consistent information from all residents in the project area. Links for each questionnaire are outlined below:

  • Hallinan Street Pathway Questionnaire
  • Douglas Way Pathway Questionnaire
  • Lanewood Street Pathway Questionnaire
  • Boca Ratan Pathway Questionnaire 

Questionnaires will be open until May 23. 

March 2022

Currently, the City of Lake Oswego and its engineering consulting partner are beginning the design process for four new pathway connections within the City. 

The first phase of the project will be to solicit input from the residents of the neighborhoods in which these pathways will be constructed. Residents will be given the opportunity at open house events to review conceptual designs and potential alignments. Feedback will be used by the project team to inform the pathway designs. Letters will be mailed to residents’ homes in the coming weeks with more information.
