The West Union/Thompson roads safety project involves completing sidewalk segments, adding ADA-compliant ramps and installing storm drainage and a streetlight. Additionally, a Tualatin Valley Water District (TVWD) waterline that conflicts with new stormwater pipes will be moved. The ramps at the Kaiser/143rd Avenue intersection will be reconstructed to meet ADA compliance by a separate County project kicking off construction this year.
This $1.2 million project was selected as one of the Urban Road Maintenance District’s (URMD) FY 2018-19 and FY 2019-20 Pedestrian and Biking Improvement projects. An open house was held in July 2019.
Since 2011, 62 Pedestrian and Biking Improvement Projects totaling over $33 million have been funded. The public can submit Pedestrian and Biking Improvement proposals. Eligible proposals are added to the Pedestrian and Biking Improvements candidate list, which has more than 200 candidates.
