Salmonberry Trail Project

A Community Path to Rockaway Beach

The City of Rockaway Beach won funding for the design of a cycling and pedestrian path that would connect Washington St to Neah-Kah-Nie High and Middle Schools. This technical design phase is expected to begin late winter 2024 and be completed by July 2024.

City leadership wants to hear from residents, nearby community members, and Neah-Kah-Nie High and Middle School students, staff, and parents before technical design is underway.

The proposed path has been included in several planning efforts in the last 10+ years, including the Rockaway Beach Transportation Plan, Safe Routes to School, the Salmonberry Trail Coast Report, and the Oregon Coast Trail. 

Residents can learn more about the project and provide input throughout the planning process

More Planning? Why?

Good question. This part of the planning process is specifically for gathering community input. It is based on the work that has been done but also allows city leaders and residents to have a voice in decision making before technical plans are developed.

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) will kick off technical design of the path later in 2023. The technical design will include recommendations for environmental, engineering, and safety considerations. Your input leading up to technical design will help ensure that the more detailed design work best serves the residents of Rockaway Beach.

Technical design is likely to advance between December 2023-July 2024. Construction funding has not yet been allocated.
