Construction was completed in September 2014 on a project to improve safety and operations in the area of OR 99W northbound and I-5 northbound, spanning the Tigard/Portland city limits. Traffic in the area should see a reduction in crashes and all road users will have a safer environment.
Project elements included:
* An additional lane on OR 99W northbound between SW 64th Avenue and SW Coronado Street. Along with improved signage and striping, this will help reduce confusion and create better movement between OR 99W north and I-5 north.
* A wider off-ramp from I-5 north to OR 99W for improved flow between the two highways
* Shoulder widening, new sidewalks and a new bike lane to improve safety for those walking and on bicycles.
* A new pedestrian refuge island in the middle of OR 99W just north of the I-5 off-ramp, near SW 60th Avenue
See the graphic below for more details on the project elements.
