  • Add a landscaped center median on Canyon Road between Short Street and Cedar Hills Boulevard.
  • Upgrade the traffic signals and lighting in the project area.
  • Add a new crosswalk across Canyon Road at Cedar Hills Boulevard on the west side of the intersection.

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. 

The City worked to develop a concept with ODOT, Metro and stakeholders through a series of public meetings. The project is now moving from concept to design and engineering stage, with construction in 2025.
