Watch for Children (posted 6/23/2017)
Child on bike

Watch for children at play

School is out for summer and that mean more children playing, bicycling and walking in and near roads.
Chasing games and other play may move onto neighborhood streets. Be alert for small children, who may enter a roadway or step out from behind a parked car or other obstruction. Slow down and be prepared to stop.
Expect an increase in bicyclists, equestrians and other vulnerable users on rural roads. These slower-moving travelers should keep to the right side of the travel lane, when no bicycle lane is present. Drivers should pass carefully, allowing six feet of separation between motor vehicles and vulnerable users. Young children and less-experienced bicyclists may not use clear hand signals. Be alert for sudden changes.
Help keep children safe by teaching the bicycle and roadside safety. Look for a bicycle rodeo or other safety class in your area, such as the Bike Repair Fair & Safety Check, June 24 at the Cedar Mill Library or the Bike Safety Rodeo, Aug. 10 at the Hillsboro Brookwood Library.

Small road safety improvement (posted 6/16/2017)

Proposals for small road safety improvements due July 15

The public is invited to propose candidates for small-scale road improvements through Washington County Department of Land Use &Transportation.

To be eligible, proposed improvements must address safety or connectivity issues on a County road.

To submit a proposal, review the map of identified small road improvement candidates to see if a candidate has already been identified at a specific location. To propose a new candidate, submit an online form, call the Operations and Maintenance Division at 503-846-ROAD (846-7623) or email

Please note: Traffic signals, signs, crosswalks and other pavement markings are handled by the LUT Engineering Section and do not qualify for URMD funding.

Proposals for eligible candidates received by July 15 will be considered later this year by the Urban Road Maintenance District Advisory Committee for the URMD Safety Improvement program. It is expected that URMDAC will allocate about $2 million for safety improvement projects in FY 2018-19.

Previously, URMD small improvement projects included sidewalks, pedestrian pathways, a pedestrian/bike path and a retaining wall/guardrail.

Proposals received after July 15 are added to the candidate list for consideration in next years' project selection process. Candidates not selected for funding remain on the candidate list for future consideration.
