OR 8 Improvements: SW 110th Avenue to SW 192nd Avenue

Construction Phase

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


​​​​​​​We are starting construction in August 2022 on a project to improve traffic signals and pedestrian connectivity at eight intersections along Canyon Road (OR 8) in Beaverton and Aloha.

Impacts

Construction Impacts

Traffic impacts may include short-term lane closures, periodic crosswalk and sidewalk closures and flaggers directing traffic. We will provide ADA-accessible pedestrian detours around the work zones.  Night work is expected as there are limited hours in which the contractor can close a lane during the day due to travel volumes. Residents may hear some nighttime noise. Call our 24/7 noise hotline at 503-412-2349 with any noise concerns.

Schedule

​Project design ended in 2021. 
Construction begins August 2022.
The majority of the work will conclude by the end of 2022.  Construction at OR 8 and SW 110th Avenue will continue through summer 2023.
