City crews will repave neighborhood streets starting Sunday

The city of Beaverton will mill and repave Southwest 22nd Street, Iris, Violet, Whisper and Whistling courts as well as Whistling Way from Sunday, Sept. 28, through Wednesday, Oct. 8.

Work will begin each day at 7 a.m. and be completed no later than 5 p.m. During this time, travel lanes will remain open to local traffic.

In addition, the city will also patch Southwest 130th Avenue between 22nd Street and Hart Road on Sunday and Monday. Work will begin each day at 7 a.m. and be completed no later than 5 p.m. On Sunday, both lanes of traffic will be open and flagged for safety. On Monday, there will be one-way traffic going southbound from 22nd Street to Hart Road with flaggers.

"Please keep in mind that the tack coat that is put down prior to the asphalt overlay does not clean up easily, and the asphalt itself is quite hot," said Bill LaMarche, the city's public information manager. "For the safety of young children and pets, please keep them inside during this time."

Resurfacing streets, rather than allowing them to deteriorate, allows the city to save tax dollars as overlays are much less expensive than costly rebuilds, city officials say. Beaverton inspects its streets regularly to determine which roads are in need of overlays.

"Properly maintaining our streets keeps our city running smoothly," said Mayor Denny Doyle. "By being proactive and addressing streets that need attention, we can protect the overall structural integrity and longevity of our roads."

The paving project will potentially cause occasional delays and other inconveniences. Road work is dependent on the weather.
