Test City Proposed Ballot Measure 3-575

The Lake Oswego City Council has referred proposed ballot measure 3-575 to voters for the November 2 election.

Proposed ballot measure 3-575 would allow additional protections for an identified list of parks and natural spaces, including prohibiting construction of new athletic facilities, commercial logging, construction of new public streets and roads, and construction or installation of new telecommunications facilities in designated Natural Areas. The proposed measure would allow the City to address issues the community has identified, including maintenance and upkeep, accessibility for people of various abilities, preparing for climate change, and fire prevention measures.

Test North Shore Road Bridge Closure

During a July 2021 inspection, the City discovered cracks and movement in the retaining wall on the east side of the northern approach to the North Shore Road Bridge, which supports the approaching roadway. In October, the design team will begin performing detailed testing and analysis of the retaining wall and surrounding area to determine the extent of the defects. 

To maintain safety, the bridge and roadway remain closed to vehicular traffic until the structural analysis and any recommended repairs are completed. At this preliminary stage, we are hoping to reopen the bridge in spring 2022, however this is subject to change.
