Life Time roadwork

Barnes Road widening nears completion

Life Time roadwork

When Life Time was approved to build its huge work and fitness complex at the corner of Barnes Road and Cedar Hills Boulevard, they were required to upgrade the roads around the development to accommodate the growth.

While there is more work to complete, we’re beginning to see the improved traffic flow resulting from wider roads and better intersections. Road construction is scheduled to be complete in April 2023, including further work on the west side of Cedar Hills Bl., installing sidewalks, landscaping, permanent markings, and striping.

Springville Road Open House

The fourth phase of improvements to Springville Road in Bethany is moving forward. The project will widen the road between the Portland Community College Rock Creek Campus and Joss Avenue, and add bike lanes, sidewalks, streetlights, and create a section of multiuse bike/ped path. Two old culverts will be replaced which will improve water flow and assist fish passage.
