Another project begins

The 187th Avenue project is about to begin, with demolition of the north part of the Rockwood Community Office building leading off work that will build a new street connection from 187th and Stark to 188th and Burnside across the east end of former Fred Meyer site (the southern portion of the building used by Gresham Police will remain as is). When it’s complete, this new street will provide a much safer direct connection between the Rockwood MAX station and the neighborhood to the south of Stark, complete with a new signal at 187th and Stark, which should reduce much of the current conflict between vehicles and pedestrians on that stretch of Stark. Construction area map here.

Project Open House, Nov 17th 6PM

While much of the work will take place entirely on the former Fred Meyer site, there will be intermittent traffic impacts on Stark Street near 187th. Staff are working closely with nearby businesses and residents regarding project schedule and scheduled lane closures, etc. A Project Open House is scheduled for 6:00 pm on November 17 at the Rockwood Community Office.


The Gresham Redevelopment Commission (GRDC) will create a direct north-south connection through the Rockwood Triangle by building a new street segment aligning 188th and 187th Avenues. This new street connection will create a much safer path between the MAX station and the residential neighborhood south of Stark, including a new signalized intersection at 187th Avenue and Stark Street. The landscape and sidewalk design for the new street will mirror the design for Burnside Boulevard. The new street connection will replace the existing segment of 188th Avenue between Stark and Burnside. The existing segment of 188th Avenue between Stark and Burnside will be used as an access driveway. Funded by Rockwood Urban Renewal.
