    Project Updates
    Ida St. Improvement Project | Update as of June 16

    Ida Street Construction begins June 3rd

    Pacific Excavation will be performing construction along Ida Street starting at 1st Avenue and working along Ida Street to 4th Avenue, beginning the first week of June and is anticipated to be completed in 2 months. The Ida Street Improvement Project will be completed in phases, with traffic being impacted only on one block at a time until final paving.


    Traffic impacts will typically be limited to 2-3 business days per block, which may impact parking and thru traffic for those areas during working hours (7:00 AM to 6:00 PM). Local access will be maintained at all times for businesses and property owners, though there may be delays. As a reminder, there is a free public parking lot available on the corner of Florence Street and 2nd Avenue and by the Stayton Court House. Please be cautious of the construction crew and equipment when driving near the construction zone.


    Also, make sure to support your local businesses that may be affected by construction and respect private parking lots owned by other businesses near the construction zone.


    For additional information, contact Ian Kintz Stormo at (503) 769–2919 and stay up to date by visiting our Projects Page at for updates.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is Public Utility Easement (PUE)?

    Public Utility Easement (PUE) is a portion of land on private property that is dedicated to give utility companies the access to install and maintain infrastructure.

    "What is a Franchise Agreement?"

    A franchise agreement is a contract that grants a franchise to operate on public and private property within a City under certain fees, rights, and rulings. As a provider of cable television service, Comcast is heavily regulated by federal, state, and local law. Primarily, under federal law, Comcast was required to obtain a franchise agreement with the City for use and operation of infrastructure within the City’s rights-of-way.

    "Why did the City sign a franchise agreement with Comcast?"

    While the City has some authority to regulate Comcast through this franchise agreement, the federal Cable Act and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations limit the City’s ability to regulate all aspects of Comcast’s service.  For example, the City is prohibited from unreasonably refusing to award a franchise to a franchise applicant. Given this strict federal regulatory context, this past year, the City negotiated a new franchise agreement with Comcast, establishing various terms and obligations regarding Comcast’s use and operation of its cable system within the City’s rights-of-way.

    "I have a question about construction or contractors in my area, who should I contact?"
