Weekly Construction Update
May 23, 2018
Here is a summary of the work happening on the various construction projects affecting streets around the city. Please feel free to contact Mike McCarthy with any questions or concerns.
Hwy 217 Auxiliary Lanes
The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is designing a project to add an auxiliary third lane on Hwy 217 southbound from Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy to Hwy 99W, and Hwy 217 northbound from Hwy 99W to Scholls Ferry Rd. More information is on the project website at hwy217.org. An open house for this project is scheduled tonight (5/23) from 5:30 to 7:30pm at Whitford Middle School, 7935 SW Scholls Ferry Road.
Pavement Patching in Northern Tigard Neighborhoods
This summer we will be slurry sealing many of the neighborhood streets in northern Tigard. While slurry seal is a very cost-effective way to counter the effects of weathering, it does not stop cracking. The street crew is removing and replacing areas of more heavily cracked pavement in preparation for the slurry seal work.
Interstate 5 (Hwy 99W to I-205) Paving and Auxiliary Lane
The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is adding a southbound auxiliary lane on Interstate 5 from Lower Boones Ferry Rd to I-205, improve on- and off-ramps, and repave Interstate 5 (both directions) from Hwy 99W to I-205. Expect some nighttime lane closures through fall 2019.
Wall Street (south of Hunziker)
Wall Street is under construction south of Hunziker Rd. Access is available to local properties (including Potso Dog Park) but drivers should expect delays.
Hwy 99W / Garrett St / School St
A developer is building new ‘specialty retail’ stores along the northwest side of Hwy 99W across from Garrett Street, near C.F. Tigard School.
113th Avenue south of Durham Road
A contractor is building a new subdivision along 113th Avenue south of Durham Road and is now installing pipes for water, storm, and sanitary sewer for the future new houses. Daytime delays likely.
Fanno Creek Trail (Woodard Park to Bonita and Hall Blvd to Tualatin)
Design work is in progress on a project to build the remaining segments of the Fanno Creek Trail from Woodard Park to Bonita Road and build a new connection from the end of 85th Avenue (Hall Boulevard) to the Tualatin Bridge.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan

Crews are working in northwestern Tigard on this project to advance our walkability. http://www.tigard-or.gov/ada/
