The city is investing in capital projects and working with our partners across the region to support improvements that will benefit major roadways and transportation infrastructure. A number of these projects are expected to begin and continue work over the next four years. Considerations for travel to and from the city is important as delays are anticipated once construction begins along area roadways, including Southwest Scholls Ferry Road, OR 217, Southwest Western Avenue, Southwest Allen Boulevard, Southwest Cascade Avenue and others.

Update from Oregon Department of Transportation: Construction is starting on OR 217 in Beaverton and Tigard as part of the OR 217 Auxiliary Lanes Project. The project will improve safety and reduce long-standing traffic bottlenecks between Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway and OR 99W. We will add auxiliary lanes, or ramp-to-ramp connections, to help give drivers more space and time to merge safely. The project will also work to improve bicycle and pedestrian routes, in part due to funding contributions from the City of Beaverton and Washington County. Major work will begin in January and continue for four years.
Know before you go! People should expect construction and traffic delays on and around OR 217.
