What happening now?
The Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway Safety Demonstration Project will be going to bid this spring along with the NE Sandy Boulevard at 31st Avenue and NE Glisan Street at 87th Avenue projects.
Improvements to SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway will include protected space for pedestrians and bikes, narrowed lanes for traffic calming, a pedestrian crossing island with flashing beacons, new ADA compliant curb ramps, and repaving between SW 30th Avenue and SW 39th Avenue.
SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway is a designated High Crash Corridor, meaning that it is a road with a high concentration of crashes. These upgrades are designed to reduce crashes and increase safety for all people using this street. Pedestrians will have a better place to cross, people biking will have a safer place to be, cars will slow down due to narrower lanes, and people with disabilities will have better access to these sidewalks. The project will serve as an example of what can be done to make our roads safer when allocated proper funding.
Safety improvements include the development of a protected pedestrian / bike lane space, reduced travel lane widths for traffic calming, a concrete median/pedestrian crossing island with rapid flashing beacons at SW 35th Avenue and all curb ramps upgraded for ADA compliance, between SW 30th and 39th Avenues. In addition, PBOT will repave the entire project area.
