Beaverton launching Adopt-a-Roadway program on 12 streets

SUBMITTED PHOTO - Even Beaverton's mascot likes a clean street. He'll get some volunteer help with the city's new Adopt-a-Roadway program.How about adding an avenue, boulevard or road to the family?

The city of Beaverton is looking for volunteers to take care of a dozen prominent street sections through its new Adopt-a-Roadway program.

Volunteer groups will commit to cleaning up their adopted roadway section at least four times per year, while the city will provide the necessary equipment and supplies and collect filled bags after cleanup days.

The program is free for volunteers and the adopting group will have their name displayed on two signs on the roadway.

The program helps meet a goal that arose from the Beaverton Community Vision process, through which residents sought more ways to improve the livability, beauty and safety of local streets.

Applications are due May 20, but since street sections are available on a first come, first served basis, early applications are encouraged.

The 12 roadway sections available are:

• Southwest Western Avenue, from Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway to Allen Boulevard

• Southwest Allen Boulevard, from Western Avenue to Southwest Hall Boulevard

• Southwest Allen Boulevard, from Hall Boulevard to Southwest Murray Boulevard

• Southwest Hart Road, from Murray Boulevard to 170th Avenue

• Southwest Cedar Hills Boulevard, from Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway to Walker Road

• Southwest Hall Boulevard, from Allen to Greenway boulevards

• Southwest Hall Boulevard, from Greenway Boulevard to Scholls Ferry Road

• Southwest Greenway Boulevard, from Hall Boulevard to 125th Avenue

• Southwest Brockman Road, from 125th Avenue to Murray Road

• Southwest 125th Avenue, from Greenway Boulevard to Scholls Ferry Road

• Southwest Barrows Road, from Scholls Ferry Road to Horizon Lane

• Southwest Barrows Road, from Horizon Lane to Loon Drive
