    If the Cazadero Trail is Tier 1, then please keep this line connected to Government Camp and connect the other end to the Cazadero, please! We need better routes to Mt. Hood than the ones we have now, and this seems like it might be very appropriate.

    Yes, adding paved shoulders would be a huge improvement for this road, which has a high travel speed and poor sight lines.

    Please complete the Cazadero Trail! It's what keeps me from visiting Barton County Park, Estacada or Milo McIver. I've taken Amisigger Road once and it was scary; I took the bus home from Estacada to avoid it. Ideally, pavement would be the easiest to use, especially if camping, but at this point completing it would be wonderful.

    Fixing the gap in the Springwater-Cazadero trail connection will enable low-stress cycling from the Portland Metro to Estacada and beyond, providing much-needed safe and healthy recreational opportunities for area residents and helping promote the coming explosion of bike tourism in the area.

    A couple of years ago I took my child bike-camping at Barton Park. The Springwater Trail was fantastic out to its end in Boring, but the last 3 miles on Amisigger Road between Boring and the park was a bit dangerous northbound and I would probably not do it again unless the trail is completed. Most of the 3 miles of needed trail already exists, but dead ends at a bridge/trestle washout. I'm sure the bridge repair is expensive, but beyond that this is an easy fix with a big payoff for the region.

    Connecting Boring and Estecada would be great and connecting both to the Springwater Regional trail would be even better!

    The Cazadero Trail would be a dream-come-true for families and recreational riders. I would use it to go camping outside of Estacada or to events at Barton Park. This is a very exciting project.

    Planning should have started thirty years ago. (...but planners don't drive through Sandy, do they.) This is for long-term planning: a By-pass around Sandy. City of Sandy employees stated it is not up to them and it's not their problem. They also had no idea who to refer to. (Sounds like Government.) It is impossible to go to the north side of the city (cliffs). Elevating has been avoided elsewhere (Bend, the coast). That leaves the south side of town. Land needs to be set aside now for the future. Therefore the planning should be Tier 1; the implementation of land acquisition should be Tier 2; and eventual construction Tier 3.

    This road has become increasingly busy over the last few years and the traffic includes many large trucks, such as log trucks, with many bicyclist. It is dangerous. Paved shoulders would go a long way to improve this road and bring more bicyclist and tourism to this beautiful stretch.

    This should be a tier 1 or tier 2 project as it would increase transportation options to the mountain and increase tourism in the area.

    I frequently bicycle with friendsw via Springwater to Estacada and this project would be a wonderful extension of the Springwater that would not be all that expensive and would encourage a lot of bike riding to Estcada and resulting spending on local businesses there. The County needs to extend the Springwater which has proven hugely popular with both peds and bike riders. Build it and they will come to Estacada!

    Four lanes are needed not only for congestion relief but also to allow divided median to protect against head on accidents in winter conditions. Son of good friend was killed recently in such an accident returning from ski trip. Also need protected bike lanes unless alternative bike trail route is paved on Still Creek Route to avoid danger on Hwy 26 for summer bike riders

    Clackamas River Drive to Barton Park is far better biking route and shoulders and bikeways should be added there sooner than 224 because 224 has far to much motor vehicle traffic compared to Clackamas River Drive to Barton Park

    I am director of the Barlow Road Ride for Mt. Hood Cultural Center & Mueum from Oregon City to Barton Park and Ammisizziger is route we use and it needs bike lanes added to the project. I agree this is tier one but it must have bike lanes on shoulders for more safety to Boring

    I direct the Barlow Road Ride for the Mt. Hood Cultural Center & Museum on this route along Marmot Road and it has potential to be OR Scenic Bikeway with proper shoulders. Springwater trail connection to Sandy already is possible on farm roads. All we need is paved bike trail route from Zig Zag to Government Camp up Still Creek Road to avoid bikes on Laurel Hill Hwy 26.

    I direct the Barlow Road Ride for the Mt. Hood Cultural Center and Musuem. This ride route suffers from no paved bike route from Zig Zag to Government Camp other than up Laurel Hill on dangerous Hwy 26. Rest of route has good alternatives like Marmot Rd to avoid Hwy 26. That last 15 mile gap needs to be solved if bike tourism to Government Camp is to become an OR Scenic Bikeway. Consider paving a 5' bike lane on Still Creek Road all the way to Government Camp. Would not cost much.

    This should be set to Tier 2. Rather than spend the required percentage of pedestrian/bicycle dollars on a hodge podge of projects, extending Sidingpringwater to Mount Hood, would make it a premier ride/run that would increase tourism dollars to Clackamas Dollars.

    Welches road and other roads need traffic calming. The cars are driving too fast.

    A traffic signal at Stone Rd would make a lot more sense. I've lived here and driven these roads for 40 years. What you're doing to this intersection is dangerous and ridiculous.

    I suppose there is matching money for this or it wouldn't be in Tier 1. We need road modification (see projects U227 and 2001) more than a multi-use trail.

    This needs to be in Tier 1 along with the Compton Rd. project to keep transportation on the arterials and off the more residential streets.

    This needs to be in Tier 1 along with the Old Loop Rd project to keep transportation on the arterials and off the more residential streets. This corner is almost impossible for trucks.
