The city has over 150 centerline miles of streets which it is responsible for maintaining or developing. The Engineering Division and the Street Maintenance Division share the construction and maintenance responsibilities which include traffic signals, streetlights, guardrails, barricades, pavement surfaces, right-of-way (shoulders, islands, etc.), and street sanding during inclement weather.
The city offers a free sandbag station in the parking lot of the Tigard Public Works Building (8777 SW Burnham Street.) The self-service station is stocked with sand and sandbags and can be accessed at any time. Shovels may not be provided, so please bring your own. Sand is to be used for emergency purposes only.
Citizens are welcome to return the full sandbags, used or not. Please return them directly to the sandbag station on the west end of the parking lot.
