Public Works Week – Stronger Together

In honor of Public Works Week May 17-21st, each day we are highlighting a division of Beaverton’s Public Works Department to share the amazing work performed by the crews and share the expertise of our staff.

Street & Construction

Currently, our crews are busy gearing up for the summer construction season and our engineering team is working on our next capital improvement projects including:
• Allen Blvd/92nd Ave Shared Use Path Connection coming 2022

• Hall & Sabin Pedestrian Crossing Improvements

• Western Ave (BH Hwy – Allen Blvd) Improvement

• Paving seven neighborhoods including Sexton Mountain Dr. and the Turquoise Loop

While the large capital improvement projects require a lot of attention, the staff is also responsible for regular maintenance and service for the city’s infrastructure including:

• Upgrading catch basins to protect water quality

• Performing underground storm/sewer line repairs

• Confined space entries for manhole repairs

• Emergency response to flooding and snow events

• Concrete road repairs & crack sealing

• ADA ramp installation and inspection

• Bridge maintenance

• Pedestrian path maintenance

• And so much more!

Did you know that the City of Beaverton:

• Maintains 226.4 miles of roadway

• Is upgrading about 200 curb ramps in 2021 to be ADA compliant (that’s about 1.3 miles of new sidewalk!)
