Open House for Walker/Murray intersection improvements

Monday, May 16, 5-7 pm, Holy Trinity Parish Fireside Hall, 13715 SW Walker Road

The intersection of Walker and Murray will be widened and improved through a project of the Washington County Department of Land Use & Transportation (LUT). This Open House is a chance for the public to view the proposed preliminary designs, ask questions and provide comment. No formal presentation is planned.


The Walker/Murray preliminary design includes dual turn lanes and dedicated right-turn lanes at all four approaches. A third southbound lane is proposed for Murray Boulevard from south of Butner Road through the Walker Road intersection. This additional lane will become a dedicated right-turn lane at Bowerman Drive.

Additional proposed improvements include replacing two bridges over Cedar Mill Creek adjacent to the intersection. One is on Murray, south of Walker; the other is on Walker, east of Murray. Replacement of two culverts on Walker, between Far Vista and Park Way, is also proposed.


Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2018, with completion by fall 2019. Dates are subject to change. The $14 million project cost includes the estimated cost of design, right-of-way and construction and is subject to change.

Funding for this project (Walker/Murray) and other upcoming road improvements around the Nike campus comes from the County’s Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP) and Transportation Development Tax (TDT). All new development pays TDT assessments based on the development’s estimated traffic impact on the road system, as defined in the TDT ordinance. LUT Director Andrew Singelakis notes, “Based on the buildings approved in Nike's 2014 land use approval, Nike’s TDT obligation was $10.1 million.” Per an agreement between Nike and the County, Nike prepaid its TDT assessment for their expansion, and those funds will be applied to the Nike-area road projects.
