Beaverton Maintains its Busy Roads

By City Staff03 Hocken Ave Bridge

Beaverton prides itself in keeping our roads well-maintained. With clear skies and warm weather, it’s the perfect time for our public works crews to perform necessary upgrades to our roadways. In April, SW Hocken Avenue reopened between Dawson Way and Hall Boulevard. The old gravel shoulders, limited bike lanes and no sidewalks have been replaced with paved bike lanes, wide sidewalks, and improved traffic lanes. The Hocken Ave bridge was also raised above the 100-year flood plain.

Crews are busy continuing to make major improvements to Farmington Road. This joint project between Washington County and the City of Beaverton will make safety and traffic capacity improvements to Farmington between Murray Blvd and Hocken Ave, for all modes of transportation. The roadway will be widened to five lanes, a continuous bicycle lane and sidewalks will be added, improved street lighting, and utility upgrades are being performed. Currently, reconstruction work is occurring on Hocken Ave, between Farmington and TV Highway, and will reopen in mid-May. Improvements are being made to the north side of Farmington and are scheduled to be completed in September 2016.

We thank you for your patience while we continue to provide the best street maintenance possible and for your safety and respect of the crews at work during these summer months!
