    This initiative / project needs complete coordination with evolving Tryon Creek State Natural Area Master Plan, concept for day lighting Tryon Creek Culvert underneath OR Hwy 43 at mile pt 5.74 = Intersect of OR 43 / Terwilliger Blvd, pedestrian access from Birdshill Rd to LO, plus geo stability of Elk Rock Cliff at MP 4.90 = OR 43 / Breyman Ave wrt Elk Rock Tunnel on WSL (to become Elk Rock Rapids at Willamette River mile 19.0. Will compile report annotated with documents and deliver circa 2013 Sep

    As a prime corridor for bicyclists trying to cross the Willamette on the Canby Ferry, the addition of paved shoulders here is of the utmost benefit. Until a bike bridge is built in Wilsonville, more attention should be paid to making the alternatives as safe as possible.

    With the construction of the Villebois housing development, this section of Grahams Ferry has been getting busier and busier (traffic traveling North and South between Clutter Rd. and Tooze Rd.), with a large number of trucks, cars, and bikes all sharing the same narrow roadway (with the vehicles often traveling at speeds well over 50+mph). Adding paved shoulders would at least be an initial step in improving the overall safety of the corridor.

    This is one of the key routes to get to the Canby Ferry from Wilsonville (one of the few safe ways to cross the Willamette). Adding paved shoulders should be a priority here to allow for a much higher safety margin between bikes and cars.

    This section of Grahams Ferry Rd. is very twisty and has horrible sightlines. Adding a paved shoulder would at least allow for some margine of error between bikes and cars.

    An alternative crossing to the I-5 bridge for bikes is desperately needed. While the Canby Ferry and Newberg Bridge are options, they are a considerable distance away, over roads that often have unpaved shoulders (let alone bike lanes!). The connection to the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway is obvious at this point, and the safety benefits for bicyclists who can avoid the 70+mph vehicles on I-5 are clear.

    Excellent project!! Very much needed!

    The bike ped bridge should connect to Charboneau by crossing under the Boone Bridge on the Wilsonville side then to Charboneau. Generally I do not think this project should be done because it is so expensive and with the Canby Ferry so close I do not see the need. The Ferry provides an excellent tourism event rather than a basic bridge. To me Tonquin Trail is awesome, but the bridge is a very low priority in the overall scheme of things. The WV Scenic Bikeway can connect to the Metro area using the Canby Ferry. This project seems like a boondoggle from the previous Clackamas County Comission Chair to benefit her constituates rather than considering what is best for the county as a whole.

    Rosemont should be a high priority. There are no shoulders and if you get off the asphalt, you can't get back on. Bikes need a route and this is an important connection; bikes shouldn't be on this dangerous road.

    Why isn't Hwy 43 a high priority all the way up to Multnomah County? This is necessary for through bicycle traffic, but currently has only intermittent bicycle facilities. It is also needed for local pedestrians but is very incomplete.

    Oswego Highway #3 (Signed OR-43) is in dire need of both basic road surface maintenance, and long-term safety improvements. It clearly should move up to high priority.

    For example, visit the short stretch between Hidden Springs and Cedaroak. Problems include:

    1. The asphalt is crumbling, some places are down to the old road surface.

    2. The crosswalks are perilous to navigate. Signal timing leads to many red-light runners. Lighting could also be better.

    3. The signals at Hidden Springs and Cedaroak are poorly synchronized, causing unneeded backups on most days. Different timing would help quite a bit.

    Last but not least, some of the utility access holes are recessed far too deep. One particular hole in the NB lane near the Cedaroak crosswalk is particularly dangerous, and it's right in the track.

    The variety of problems on this short segment is but one example of why the entire length of OR-43 in West Linn needs serious work, and not just a little hot-top. Please make it a high priority -- Thank you.

    I got rear ended here by a car coming over the hill when I had to stop for a deer in the road. A car coming the other direction hit that car because the road is so narrow here. (FYI, sheriff never responded). With the volume of traffic here, this route should be a top priority.

    With the amount of bikers and traffic here, this route should be a top priority of not just the state but also the County.

    Highway 43 is served by near frequent (almost 15-minute headways) bus service from Trimet's Route 35 during the morning and evening peak commute periods. This Highway has been experiencing increased congestion as population in the region grows. Considering the existing development pattern along Highway 43 and the constrained Right-of-way, the County should consider high capacity transit in this corridor to increase capacity.

    This road is horrible to commute and bike.

    Hwy 43 is terrible and has been for years. This should be moved up on the priority list.

    HWY 43 needs repair work.

    This area of Stafford road is frequented by recreational and commuter cyclists and is the main bike route to cross the Canby Ferry.

    The bike lane roadway surface is in poor repair through West Linn and grates and drains have not been raised with previous asphalt overlays, making them dangerous. This is a major commuter route. Protected bike lanes would be even better.
