Weekend road work scheduled in October

The intersection of Farmington and Murray continues as a focus


Weekend road work will begin Friday through Sunday and continue Oct. 28-30 at the intersection of Southwest Farmington Road and Southwest Murray Boulevard (weather permitting).

The weekend work is expected to take place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Flaggers will be present.

Night work has been extended to Nov. 18 to complete the installation of storm drains and water lines. Work at the Southwest Farmington and Southwest Murray intersection includes installing upgraded sanitary sewer, storm drainage and water lines.

During the coming Friday through Sunday work, the outside lanes of westbound and eastbound traffic on Southwest Farmington will be closed.

During the weekend of Oct. 28-30, the inside lanes of westbound and eastbound Southwest Farmington will be closed and left hand turns from westbound Farmington will be restricted. Vehicles and bicyclists are urged to use alternate routes including Southwest Allen Boulevard or Southwest Tualatin Valley Highway. 

The joint project between Beaverton and Washington County is scheduled for completion by late spring 2017. The first phase of the Farmington Project — widening the south side of Southwest Farmington including the installation of a new box culvert at Erickson Creek — has been completed.

The second phase, which includes the sewer line installation, is nearing completion. Private utilities are currently relocating their facilities on the north side of Farmington. After the relocation, further work — including curb, sidewalks and paving — will occur. The third phase includes widening the north side of Farmington Road.

The final phase, which includes improvements to the intersection of Southwest Farmington Road and Southwest Murray Boulevard will occur mostly at night.
