Stafford Road Pathway

Published September 3, 2023
Stafford Pathway


The City of Lake Oswego Parks & Recreation Department would like the community to know that as of August 30, 2023, the pedestrian pathway along Stafford Road from the Pioneer Cemetery to Overlook Drive has been redirected to the south side of the road and is open for use.

To ensure public safety, marked signs are visible for the shared-purpose path. Both pedestrian and bike traffic is routed via custom flashing crosswalk signs to notify users to wait for vehicles to stop. Conversely, flashing lights will direct vehicle traffic to stop for foot and bike traffic.

Other installed safety features include:

·       Water-filled “jersey barriers” separating the road from the path,

·      ADA-compliant landings and pathways,

·       Pedestrian countdown timers,

·       Marked crosswalks and asphalt paved surfaces,

·       Expanded shoulder to accommodate a wider pathway.

Overlook Drive and Stafford Drive continue to utilize stop signals and walkways for pedestrian and vehicle passage. Also, the north side pedestrian path from Overlook Drive to Atherton Drive is closed with the construction of Rassekh Park. The community will need to use the existing southside path along Hazelia Field and Luscher Farm.

As always, we want the public to proceed cautiously as this new path is introduced to pedestrians and motorists. This pathway is temporary as work continues on the Recreation and Aquatic Center. In the fall of 2024, the path will be redirected to the north side in conjunction with the project’s opening.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns.
