On the Road

Adopt-A-Road volunteers are picking up litter along Bump and Linklater roads (Whiskey Creek Gang) and along Gordon Road from Zion Church to Beach (Wascoe's Most Wanted). Thank you, volunteers!

Paving preparation (milling) work on Scholls Ferry Road between Roy Rogers and Teal Boulevard begins Tuesday, September 2, through Friday, September 5, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Final paving will occur Sunday, September 7, through Saturday, September 13, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. each night. View our media release for details.

Paving is planned next week on Terman Road from Terman to Murray-northbound and on Alexander Street from 170th to 185th. Roads will remain open but may be limited to one-way traffic controlled by flaggers. Expect delays or use alternate routes.

Slurry seals and asphalt overlay paving on roads in in the Urban Road Maintenance District continue next week. Scroll down to Road Maintenance Projects for specific road schedules.

Pavement repairs continue on Mountaindale RoadScoggins Valley Road and Tongue Lane. Shoulder maintenance continues on River Road. Guardrails are being repaired on Farmington Road at the bridge east of River Road. Community Service workers continue landscape maintenance on 170th Avenue from Rigert to Blanton.

Pre-marking for pavement striping on the roads chip sealed this summer is almost complete. All striping is expected to be restored by the end of September.

If you travel Highway 47 north of Forest Grove, you'll notice some new Through-Route Activated Warning Signs. The flashing beacons on the signs warn motorists that there is cross traffic at the Highway 47 - Verboort/Purdin intersection so drivers can slow down and look out for approaching vehicles. Oregon Department of Transportation installed the signs to help address safety concerns until a roundabout can be built at the intersection. ODOT has already reduced the speed limit from 50 to 45 mph, applied rumble strips, and installed "Headlights on for Safety" signs. Construction of the roundabout is expected to begin in late 2015 or early 2016.

ODOT's TV Highway (Minter Bridge to 331st) paving project will take a break over the holiday weekend. There will be no lane closures on Baseline Street or Oak Street from noon on Friday, August 29, to Tuesday, September 2, due to the Labor Day holiday. Beginning Tuesday, September 2, the right and center lanes on Baseline Street between 4th and 2nd will be closed 24/7. The left lane of Oak Street from 6th to 9th will be closed 24/7 throughout the week. Please drive cautiously and follow construction signage.

Road Closures

Oleson Road is closed for eight months at the Fanno Creek bridge just south of Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway. Motorists are detoured to Hall Boulevard and Scholls Ferry Road. A temporary bike/ped bridge provides access for walkers and bicyclists during the closure.

The City of Beaverton will be performing daytime closures for westbound traffic on Barrows Road between Roshak Road and Scholls Ferry Road for 30 days starting September 8. Westbound traffic will be detoured onto Horizon Boulevard. This work is related to their sewer and waterline project. Contact the City of Beaverton for more details.

The City of Tigard will be closing 72nd Avenue between Dartmouth and Elmhurst from September 25 through October 16. The closure is related to intersection improvements. Contact the City of Tigard for more information.
