A contractor for ODOT completed construction in October 2013 to widen OR 99W at Beef Bend Road in Tigard/King City in order to build a dedicated right‐turn lane for southbound road users. There have been a high number of rear‐end crashes at this intersection—particularly in the southbound direction— and the new right-turn lane should significantly reduce the frequency of these crashes. The project elements included:
♦ Widening southbound OR 99W prior to Beef Bend Road to build a dedicated right‐turn lane. This will reduce traffic backups and improve safety and operations at the intersection
♦ Adding a right‐turn arrow for southbound traffic turning onto Beef Bend Road
♦ Rebuilding ADA ramps at the northwest corner of OR 99W and Beef Bend Road
♦ Resurfacing a portion of the shared‐use path along OR 99W
Work began in April 2013 and was completed in October 2013.
