OR 8 Improvements − 165th Avenue to 192nd Avenue

Design Phase

Region 1: Portland metro and Hood River County (Washington)

​​​​​This project is designed to improve safety and access to public transit in this section of TV Highway.


Construction Impacts

Temporary construction impacts may include noise, lane closures and intermittent crosswalk closures. ODOT will post pedestrian and bicycle detour signs, and detours will be accessible to people with disabilities. The project team will work to maintain access to TriMet bus service.

The project will use temporary safety equipment, signs or flaggers to direct traffic and pedestrians during construction. We will keep the public informed as construction approaches. Once construction is underway, check the website for weekly traffic impacts.


Project design: through August 2020
Project construction: 2021-2022



ODOT is increasing safety and access to public transit at three intersections on OR 8 (SW Tualatin Valley Highway) in Beaverton and Aloha: 

  • SW 165th Avenue
  • SW 178th Avenue
  • SW 192nd Avenue​

The project includes sidewalk improvements, bus stop improvements, pedestrian crosswalks and ADA ramps.
