Hall Boulevard Overpass Replacement

Rebuilding Hall Boulevard Overpass (Tigard)

Starting March 4: Hall Boulevard overpass in Tigard closes for nine months 

Crews have been working hard to improve safety and reduce bottlenecks on OR 217 by adding auxiliary lanes, or ramp to ramp connections, between Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway and OR 99W.

To make room for these new auxiliary lanes and safety shoulders on the south end of the project, the Hall Boulevard overpass in Tigard near OR 99W and Pfaffle Street will be replaced with one that is longer and includes wider sidewalks and bicycle lanes.

To build the new structure, we need to close the overpass to traffic for about nine months starting Monday morning, March 4. A bike and pedestrian crossing will be available throughout the closure.

Here's what you need to know:
  • What: The Hall Boulevard overpass near OR 99W and Pfaffle Street in Tigard will close for approximately nine months.
  • Where: The closure will start just north of Pfaffle Street and extend a few feet past the south end of the overpass. The intersection of Pfaffle Street and Hall Boulevard will be closed. All vehicle traffic should use the signed detour.
  • When: The closure is anticipated to start at 6 a.m. March 4, and continue for nine months. 
  • Why: We need to demolish and then rebuild the overpass with wider footings to make room for the new auxiliary lanes and shoulders underneath. The new overpass will include wider sidewalks and bike lanes, be more earthquake resilient, and Americans with Disabilities Act compliant.
  • Noise impacts: Daytime construction noise will occur regularly as the new overpass is rebuilt. Nighttime noise is expected at the beginning of the closure during installation of the pedestrian bridge and overpass demolition.

Detours during the overpass closure:
  • For drivers: Use OR 99W to Greenburg Road to Hall Boulevard (and vice versa). The intersection of Hall Boulevard and Pfaffle Street will also close during this time. 
  • For pedestrians and cyclists: People walking, rolling and bicycling will continue to have access across OR 217 using a designated path on the overpass until a temporary bicycle and pedestrian bridge is installed by March 15. The temporary bridge will span the highway, running from Hall Boulevard on the south end to Pfaffle Street on the north end.
  • For transit users: Trimet lines 43 and 78 will be rerouted using Locust Street, Greenburg Road and OR 99W. There will not be Trimet service on Hall Boulevard between Locust Street and OR 99W.
  • Local access: The intersection of Pfaffle Street and Hall Boulevard will be closed. Local traffic will have access to Pfaffle Street between OR 99W and Hall Boulevard. Local traffic will have access to Hall Boulevard between Greenburg Road and Pfaffle Street and between OR 99W and the southern end of the overpass. Please avoid using small neighborhood streets in lieu of the detour route.

Overnight and weekend closure of OR 217 in Tigard needed as part of Hall Boulevard overpass work 

Crews will need to close OR 217 in both directions in Tigard between OR 99W and Greenburg Road for a few days towards the start of the overpass closure to safely install the temporary bike and pedestrian bridge and demolish the existing overpass.

Here's what you need to know:

  • What: One overnight closure and one weekend closure of OR 217 in both directions in Tigard. Several on-ramps will also close during this time.
  • Where: Both directions of OR 217 closed between OR 99W and Greenburg Road. Several on-ramps leading up to this area will also close:
    • Southbound Hall Boulevard on-ramp (currently closed already).
    • Southbound Scholls Ferry Road on-ramp.
    • Southbound Greenburg Road on-ramp.
    • Northbound 72nd Avenue on-ramp.
    • Northbound OR 99W on-ramps.
  • When:
    • Overnight starting at 11 p.m. on Saturday, March 9 until 8 a.m. on Sunday, March 10.
    • One weekend starting at 9 p.m. on Friday, March 15 until 5 a.m. on Monday, March 18.
  • Why: Crews will install the temporary bike and pedestrian bridge over OR 217 during the overnight closure and will demolish the existing Hall Boulevard overpass during the weekend closure.
  • Noise impacts: Expect nighttime noise on Saturday, March 9 during installation of the temporary bike and pedestrian bridge over OR 217 and between Friday, March 15 and Monday, March 18 during the demolition of the existing Hall Boulevard overpass.
