Tigard to begin major street maintenance projects soon
Some well-traveled intersections are slated for repairs this fall
TIGARD - Motorists are advised to be on the lookout for street-improvement projects that will begin in early September.
The city's Pavement Major Maintenance Program will continue this fall with phase one of two for the current fiscal year.
'This project is the city's annual long-term street preventative and corrective maintenance program to extend pavement life and avoid costly reconstruction,' said Vannie T. Nguyen, city engineering manager. 'Streets that make the cut each year are selected through evaluation of the types, severity and extent of pavement distress, and traffic volumes.'
Phase one street projects include Garden Park at 110th Avenue, 68th Parkway between Pacific Highway and Atlanta Street, 100th Avenue between Sattler Street and Atlanta Street, and 72nd Avenue between the McDonald's restaurant driveway and Baylor Street.
Other projects include the Hall Boulevard/Durham Road intersection, the Pacific Highway/Main Street intersection, and 66th Avenue from Hampton to Franklin.
'Traffic delays and road closures can be anticipated during the construction period from September through November 20,' Nguyen said.
Work on the Main Street/Pacific Highway and Durham Road/Hall Boulevard intersections will be performed between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. to avoid traffic delays during peak hours, she added.
'Advance notice will be given to area residents and businesses on or near the work sites on the affected streets,' Nguyen said.
The city's Community Investment Program, funded by the street maintenance fee, is paying for the projects.
