Photo Credit: GAZETTE FILE PHOTO - This is a shot of the Tualatin side of 124th Avenue at the Tualatin-Sherwood Road intersection. Plans are to extend the road all the way out to Tonquin Road in an area that's being zoned for future light industrial growth.Want to learn more about Washington County’s 124th Avenue extension project and the Willamette Water Supply Program?

Visit an open house being held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m Wednesday, Sept. 24, at Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue’s Training Center, 12400 S.W. Tonquin Road, Sherwood.

Staff from Washington County and the Willamette Water Supply Program will be available to answer questions and solicit comments.

The 124th Avenue project will construct an interim two-lane arterial between Tualatin-Sherwood Road and Grahams Ferry Road. In 2012, Sherwood voters approved annexing 300 acres of property as part of what’s known as the Tonquin Employment Area along the 124th Avenue extension. Plans are to create a light industrial zone for future production-type employment.

In addition to the roads project, a waterline will be installed under 124th as part of the Willamette Water Supply Project (ourreliablewater.org).

Construction on both is scheduled to begin summer 2015.
