About



BACKGROUND
The City of Beaverton adopted the Beaverton Community Vision in 2010, which calls for a revitalized, walkable and safe downtown.  The Canyon Road Streetscape Project is designed with this vision in mind.  The goal is to enhance the existing streetscape by creating a sense of place with trees, sidewalks, center medians and a new crosswalk.  The new streetscape will increase pedestrian connectivity between the Creekside District and Old Town in Central Beaverton. It will also improve highway safety, signal operations, and access to transit on Canyon Road. For more information on the City’s priorities and the history of the project, visit 
www.beavertonoregon.gov/1960/Creekside-District.

The City worked to develop a concept with ODOT and stakeholders through a series of public meetings. The project is now moving from the concept to design and engineering stage, with construction in 2020.  

PROPOSED PROJECT ELEMENTS

  • Widen sidewalks on Canyon Road to 9 feet where possible, with a landscape buffer (in select locations).  Improve accessible sidewalk curb ramps
  • Add a crosswalk and a Rapid Flash Beacon on Canyon Road at Rose Biggi Avenue.  A flashing beacon is a pedestrian-activated flashing light at a marked crosswalk to help alert motorists that a pedestrian is crossing the street
  • Add a landscaped center median on Canyon Road between Short Street and Cedar Hills Boulevard
  • Add a sidewalk on the south side of Canyon Road between Cedar Hills Boulevard and Hocken Avenue
  • Add a dedicated left-turn lane from Canyon Road eastbound to Cedar Hills Boulevard northbound
  • Upgrade the traffic signals and lighting on Canyon Road at Cedar Hills Boulevard and at Hocken Avenue 
  • Rebuild driveways and evaluate business access within the project area for safety and compatibility with project design. Driveway modifications will be discussed individually with property owners in fall 2017
