OR 99W Sidewalk Project: SW Royalty Parkway to SW Durham Road - ODOT, in partnership with King City, plans to construct new sidewalk on OR 99W (Pacific Highway) and on SW Royalty Parkway. Work has begun and is expected to continue through July. During construction, road users should expect daytime and nighttime work. There will be single-lane and shoulder closures on OR 99W and on Royalty Parkway as well as short-term sidewalk closures, with ADA-approved pedestrian detours. Nearby residents may hear intermittent nighttime noise. More information can be found on the project website at https://www.oregon.gov/odot/projects/pages/project-details.aspx?project=18807
Cook Park Sewer Line - A portion of Clean Water Services’ West Durham Basin Improvement Program has started at Cook Park. The project is replacing aging sewer interceptor pipes that help control water flow with larger, more resilient pipes to improve wastewater capacity. Work is on hold for the summer and will begin again in the fall. Work began near the wastewater plant and progresses westwardMore info is on the CWS website: http://www.cleanwaterservices.org/about-us/projects/west-durham-basin-improvement-program/
Fanno Creek Trail – Woodard Park to Tiedeman Ave - The new bridge and trail connecting the Fanno Creek Trail straight from Woodard Park across the creek to the existing crosswalk on Tiedeman Avenue is now open. This project completed a missing link of the Fanno Creek Greenway Trail, provided an ADA accessible route where it did not exist before, increased trail safety by lining the trail up with a safe crosswalk, and provided a very clear definition of the regional trail route at Tiedeman Avenue. Most of the project was paid for with a generous $800,000 grant from Metro. Upcoming projects in this location include safety changes at the crosswalk, adding refuge islands and more visible lighting. As soon as a long enough stretch of rain free weather happens, a new mural will also be painted on the retaining wall and bridge foundation to add character to the trail and to help discourage graffiti.
