Weekly Construction Update
April 19, 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.
ODOT Open House about Tolls on I-5 and I-205
The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) held a public open house to discuss the concept of congestion pricing (i.e. Tolls) on parts of I-5 and I-205. Comments can also be made via an online open house at: http://openhouse.oregondot.org/congestion
98th Ave / Summerfield Dr Islands
The street crew has installed new islands and stop signs in the center of 98th Ave at Summerfield Dr. This is to improve walkability by reducing driver speeds on 98th Ave and reinforcing the need to stop at Summerfield Dr.
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 Elementary School. Site clearing is in progress, followed by pipe work under Hwy 99W at night.
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.
Main Street at Commercial Street Crosswalk
A TriMet bus recently knocked over a sign with flashing lights at the crosswalk across Main Street at Commercial Street. The street crew has replaced the post and sign, and will be reinstalling the flashing lights when replacement parts are received.
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. Contact Mike McCarthy at 503-718-2462 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.

A contractor is installing storm and sanitary sewer pipes under Oak Street near 90th Avenue for a new apartment complex along Oak Street. Daytime delays likely.
97th Avenue south of McDonald Street

East Fork Derry Dell Creek
Fieldwork begins this week on East Fork Derry Dell creek. This stream restoration project is to protect exposed sewer pipes and undermined manholes along this stretch of creek. Residents can expect to see Tigard staff and consultants completing field investigations along the creek and flagging wetland boundaries.
Hwy 217 Auxiliary Lanes
The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is in the early stages of design of 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.

Bull Mountain Road will be closed from Roy Rogers Road to 164th Avenue for the months of June and July to reconstruct the road and add a traffic signal at Roy Rogers Rd and a roundabout at the new River Terrace Blvd.
