In the past few years, the intersection of Washington and 12th Streets has been the location of multiple accidents.  At the beginning of 2016, it was the location of a minimum of 5 motor vehicle accidents. In response, the City of Oregon City took immediate steps to evaluate the safety of this intersection. The City completed some minor modifications to the area, increasing sight distance for vehicles and adjusting signage. The City’s traffic engineering consultant, DKS Associates, has completed a comprehensive analysis of the intersection and recommended that either a traffic signal or permanent restrictions to left turns be implemented.  At this time, the City is moving forward with design of a traffic signal at the intersection.
