Construction in Tigard

Projects in Tigard
Summer Paving is Underway in Tigard
The city's summer paving work started on July 1st. Summertime weather makes for ideal paving conditions. Paving is done on roads with severe cracks and potholes and on busy streets where the road surface is subjected to the daily pressure of thousands of vehicles. Details are posted here.
Tigard Main Street
Plans for Downtown Retrofit & Parking
The Main Street/Green Street Retrofit project will rebuild portions of Main Street to include eco-friendly water quality facilities, new sidewalks, LED street lights, street trees and public art. Details here
Walnut Street (116th to Tiedeman)
WA County project website
This project will improve Walnut Street between SW 116th Avenue and SW Tiedeman Avenue and the northern intersection of Walnut with 135th Avenue. The roadway design will provide a travel lane in each direction with a continuous center turn lane, bike lanes, sidewalks, and drainage enhancements. Improvements at the 135th intersection may include traffic signals. This project is being advanced by the County in coordination with the City of Tigard.
Pacific Hwy/Gaarde/McDonald Intersection Improvement
ODOT project website | Intersection Improvements Detailed Designs
The project is expected to increase intersection capacity by roughly 30 percent in the afternoon peak hour, 20 percent in the morning peak hour, and 25 percent mid-day and on weekends.

Construction Projects on Pacific Hwy (99W)
Changes slated for Pacific Hwy (99W) north of Hwy 217:
  • A third southbound lane will be added.
  • Missing sections of bike lanes will be installed.
  • One of two southbound left turn lanes onto 72nd Ave will be eliminated.
  • The center turn lane has been eliminated and a median is being installed from Hwy 217 to 72nd Ave.
    Motorists will have to plan ahead in order to access businesses on the opposite side of the highway. Northbound motorists will make U-turns to access the southbound side of the highway. REMEMBER: U-turns are prohibited in intersections controlled by an "electrical signal" (traffic light) unless an official sign permits them. Two “jug handles” will re-route southbound motorists to the northbound side of the highway. (Maps and additional details can be seen here.)

ODOT Construction on Pacific Hwy (99W) at its ramps to I-5
Construction will begin in mid-March 2014, on a project to improve safety and operations in the area of OR 99W northbound and I-5 northbound, spanning the Tigard/Portland city limits. Project elements include:
  • Widening 99W northbound to provide two lanes on the ramp to I-5 north and two lanes northbound onto the bridge to Barbur Boulevard.
  • Widening the I-5 northbound off-ramp to provide two lanes northbound from I-5 north onto Barbur Boulevard.
  • New sidewalks and new bike lanes, shoulder widening, and a new pedestrian island on Barbur Boulevard at 60th Avenue.

More information can be found on this ODOT notice and on the ODOT project website.

Pacific Hwy (99W) at Fischer Road to Durham Road
Construction began in June to improve safety on OR 99W from Fischer Road to Durham Road in King City and Tigard. Once complete, traffic in the area should see a reduction in crashes and all road users will have a safer environment. Construction is slated for completion by the end of 2014.



CONSTRUCTION NOTICE:
Monday, July 21 at 7 a.m. until Friday, July 25 at 5 p.m.
Tigard Towne Square

As part of ODOT's OR 99W: Fischer Road to Durham Road Safety Project currently in construction, the driveway into Tigard Towne Square from OR 99W northbound will be closed 24/7. This is the driveway located between McDonalds and Panda Express. During the driveway closure, road users are advised to use the Tigard Towne Square driveway off of Durham Road. Signs on OR 99W will direct road users to the Durham Road driveway. The right turn lane from OR 99W northbound to Durham Road will remain open during this time.

The driveway closure is required to build a safe separation for vehicles on OR 99W northbound turning right into Tigard Towne Square and those turning right onto Durham Road.



There have been a high number of crashes on OR 99W in the vicinity of Fischer Road and Royal Villa Drive, some of them resulting in serious injuries. These are primarily rear-end crashes on OR 99W southbound just south of Fischer Road, and T-bone crashes at the center median opening on OR 99W at Royal Villa Drive.

Project elements include:
  • Closing the center median opening on OR 99W at Royal Villa Drive. This will eliminate the T-bone collisions. Left turns in and out of Royal Villa Drive and U-turns in the median opening will no longer be possible.
  • Providing for U-turns on OR 99W southbound at Fischer Road. A left-turn lane and a U-turn signal will be installed at the intersection. This will assist southbound travelers who are bound for Royal Villa Drive or wish to head north.
  • Addressing the safety issue at OR 99W and the entrance of Tigard Towne Square by creating a safe separation for vehicles turning right into the shopping center and those turning right onto Durham Road.

More information can be found on the ODOT project website.

Scholls Ferry Road at Cascade Avenue safety project
ODOT is designing a 2014 safety project on Scholls Ferry Road (OR 210) from Cascade Avenue to OR 217 in Beaverton/Tigard. This area has seen a high number of angle and turning crashes.

Project elements include:
  • A dedicated left turn signal for Cascade Avenue traffic turning onto Scholls Ferry Road both northbound and southbound.
  • Traffic signals at the intersection of Scholls Ferry Road and the OR 217 ramps will be shielded to reduce driver confusion.
  • New sidewalk and ADA ramps will be built on Scholls Ferry Road between Cascade Avenue and OR 217.

More information can be found on the ODOT project website.

Highway 217 from I-5 to US 26
ODOT project website | This project is making operational and safety improvements on Oregon 217 (OR 217), including widening the right shoulders on three sections of OR 217, paving both directions of OR 217 from U.S 26 to I-5, improving signage in the OR 217 corridor, and upgrading the center median barrier.
Scholls Ferry Road from Roy Rogers Road to Teal Boulevard/Horizon Boulevard
WA County project website
