Sunset offramp update

At the September 21 meeting of the Urban Road Maintenance District Advisory Committee (URMDAC) Washington County Transportation Planner Stacy Shetler gave committee members an update on the project to install traffic lights to help improve the highly dysfunctional eastbound offramp from Highway 26 onto Cedar Hills Boulevard (CHB).

We wrote about the proposed partnership to fund the improvements in the May 2016 issue. An Intergovernmental Agreement has been in the works among the City of Beaverton, Washington County, Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), and the Peterkort Company, whose proposed development will have a large impact on traffic in the area. Each party will contribute $200,000 toward the improvements.

ODOT owns Cedar Hills Boulevard where it runs beneath the freeway, but it’s likely that Washington County will contribute a little more money to build a sidewalk along the east side of CHB. The county will hire the design consultant, prepare plans, and manage the construction.

The project may include, but is not limited to, the following elements:

  • A traffic signal at the bottom of the eastbound ramp
  • Interconnect and coordinate the timing of the existing signal at Butner
  • Construct curb, gutter, and sidewalk as needed to accommodate the new signal

Agreement revisions are in the second round of review. At this point, the schedule for the projects calls for finalizing the agreement by February 2017, finalizing plans and advertising for bids by January 2018, and completing construction in August 2018.
