Construction on this project is complete.
Construction is complete on the OR 99W: Gaarde/McDonald intersection improvement project. This was a $10.9 million collaborative project between ODOT, City of Tigard and Washington County.
The project was designed to improve traffic flow and safety in the intersection and will increase intersection capacity, reducing the delay currently experienced by drivers. The improvements are expected to increase capacity approximately 30 percent in the afternoon peak hour and roughly approximately 20 percent in the morning peak hour.
Main improvements on OR 99W
Southbound – Additional lane starting just north of Gaarde/McDonald and becoming a dedicated right turn lane for Bull Mountain Road
Northbound – Additional left turn lane for Gaarde Street and a right turn lane for McDonald Street
Median planter, retaining walls, new traffic signals, water treatment and storm water facility upgrades
