Fanno Creek Trail Crossing at Scholls Ferry Road
We completed the Fanno Creek Trail At-Grade Crossing Study at Scholls Ferry Road based on community requests for a permanent solution to flooding of the Fanno Creek Trail under Scholls Ferry Road.
What We Heard
- Trail users are frustrated and concerned about how often the trail floods and can stay flooded over time.
- A permanent solution is needed to lessen the impacts of the flooding while also allowing the safe crossing of Scholls Ferry Road.

What We Learned
- An “at-grade” signalized pedestrian crossing of Scholls Ferry Road is the most viable long-term solution.
- In addition to any long-term solution to trail flooding, we can do a better job providing trail users with information about available detour routes and when the trail is flooded.

- A virtual open house is our opportunity to ask if we are heading in the right direction.
- If we are headed in the right direction, project partners will then seek needed funding for crossing design and construction.
- Interim projects to lessen the impacts of flooding.

The Fanno Creek Trail in Tigard is being developed in segments, with current work on:
- Bonita to Durham Alignment Study – Known as the “missing link” this planning project will determine the vicinity of the future route from Bonita Road to the Tualatin River.
- Connections Project - This construction project will fill four key gaps on the Fanno Creek Trail:
- Woodard Park to Grant Avenue
- Main Street to Hall Boulevard (Reconstruction)
- Tigard Public Library to Bonita Road
- 85th Avenue to the Tualatin River
- Fanno Creek Trail Amenities - While the Fanno Creek Trail is being developed in segments, a cohesive look and feel for the trail in Tigard is the goal.
- Scholls Ferry Road At-Grade Crossing - Tigard has partnered with several agencies to complete a conceptual design and an alternatives analysis of where the trail could cross Scholls Ferry Road at-grade.
- Fanno Creek Overlook - This project will straighten the Fanno Creek Trail through downtown, eliminating the need for the “over and back” route over Fanno Creek, while creating a resting space along the trail that looks out over the creek itself.
Fanno Creek Trail
Fanno Creek Trail is a regional trail that extends from Tualatin to Portland, passing through Tigard, Beaverton and unincorporated Washington County. The vision dates back to 1975: a 15-mile walking and biking trail from the Willamette River in Southwest Portland to Fanno Creek's confluence with the Tualatin River in Tualatin.
Fanno Creek Trail is a paved, multi-use pathway for walkers, runners, bicyclists and nature enthusiasts of all ages. The trail is being developed in segments with approximately 60% of Tigard's sections complete, including the Fanno Creek Park segment that connects downtown Tigard with Tigard's City Hall and Library.
When completed, Fanno Creek Trail will connect neighborhoods, parks, schools community and senior centers, libraries and businesses. The trail is expected to become an amenity that significantly enhances the quality of life for Tigard's residents.
