OR 141 (SW Hall Boulevard) ADA Ramp Improvement Project: SW Scholls Ferry Road to SW Locust Street

Project Completed

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

​​​​​We upgraded 67 sidewalk curb ramps at approximately 12 existing intersections along Oregon 141 (SW Hall Boulevard) between SW Scholls Ferry Road and SW Locust Street to make them ADA compliant. The imp​​rovements create safer and more accessible highway connections for all sidewalk users along SW Hall Boulevard.​​


Traffic Impact

Update as of 8/9/23:

The majority of construction work is complete. Construction crews working for ODOT estimate wrapping up minor corrective and repair work at some areas within the project corridor by the end of fall 2023. This work will have little to no impact on traffic. 

Please note, other projects in the area are​ still underway. See ​the "Other Projects in the Area" section below for more project-related information.

For the most up-to-date traffic impacts please visit 

We will continue to share project updates and outcomes on this website.

Construction Impacts

Construction started in fall 2022 and the majority of the work was completed in summer 2023. ​

Project Updates
Sidewalk curb ramps at 12 existing intersections are complete and functional. Ongoing cleanup, landscaping and minor corrective work is expected to complete by the end of fall 2023.

Other projects in the area

OR 99W Paving Project

ODOT is working on a ​project on OR 99W between I-5 and McDonald Street to pave, build new sidewalks and bicycle lanes, upgrade ​​sidewalk curb ramps, repair bridges and make safety improvements in the intersection with SW Johnson/Main Street. For more information please visit the project website​

OR 141: SW Hall Boulevard: Pedestrian Safety Improvements including Two Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons 
In partnership with the City of Tigard and Washington County, ODOT is working on a project to enhance safety on SW Hall Boulevard by installing two new enhanced pedestrian crossings, or Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons, across SW Hall Boulevard at the intersections of SW Hemlock Street in unincorporated Washington County and SW Spruce Street within the City of Tigard. Additional work includes constructing new sidewalk, new lighting and improving sidewalk curb ramps to meet ADA requirements. The project begins the design phase in 2023, with construction anticipated in 2025. For more information please visit the project website​

Oregon 217 Auxiliary Lanes Project
ODOT is working on a project 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. Work began in December 2021 and continues through 2025. In partnership with the City of Beaverton and Washington County, we are making targeted improvements to local bicycle and pedestrian routes. New bike lanes and sidewalks will be installed on Hall Blvd between Scholls Ferry Road and SW Cascade Avenue. The Hall Blvd bridge over OR217 between OR99W and SW Pfaffle Street will be replaced. ​For more information please visit the project website​

Willamette Water Supply
The Willamette Water Supply Program is adding seismically-resilient water supply for Tualatin Valley Water District, City of Hillsboro, and City of Beaverton water customers. This project started in March 2023 and is currently under construction along the Hall Blvd corridor. For more information please visit the project website​

Portland & Western Railroad 
Railroad track work was completed in June at two locations on SW Hall Boulevard between between Commercial and Burnham streets and between Cascade and Nimbus avenues. In both locations, the railroad replaced existing ties and rails and stabilized equipment on the tracks. The work resulted in a smooth transit for vehicles crossing the tracks. More details available here​.

OR 141: SW Hall Boulevard from SW 92nd Avenue to SW Pfaffle Street
ODOT, in coordination with the City of Tigard, lowered the speed limit from 40 mph to 30 mph on OR 141 (SW Hall Boulevard) between SW 92nd Avenue and SW Pfaffle Street. The new reduced speed limit and posted speed limit signs went into effect the week of March 20. 

Lower vehicle speeds can decrease the severity of crashes, particularly in pedestrian and bike collisions and may also allow drivers more time to see and react to vulnerable road users and obstacles. In the Portland metro region, excessive speed and driver impairment combine to be the second leading cause of fatal and disabling crashes.

Speed Zones in Oregon are established through an engineering study completed by ODOT and follows a full review of roadway characteristics including crash history, traffic volumes, highway geometry, roadside culture and density. 


Construction began in fall 2022 and the majority of the work was completed in summer 2023.​​

Project Elements

  • Sidewalk Curb Ramps
    • Upgraded 67 sidewalk curb ramps along 12 existing intersections of SW Hall Boulevard to comply with current Americans with Disabilities Act standards, increasing accessibility for all users. 
    • Added accessible curb ramp transition onto the highway shoulder at several locations where the sidewalk ends. 
  • Intersection Improvements
    • Installed new vehicle detectors at intersections to improve signal timing by sensing the presence of vehicles. 
    • Added new pedestrian push buttons.
    • Replaced striping and signs when affected by rebuilt sidewalk curb ramps.
    • We will work with our partners at the City and County to make the pedestrian crossing safer with future improvements at the intersection of SW Hemlock Street and SW Hall Boulevard.
