Lightbulb The proposed project to widen Scholls Ferry Road...

Got this in my inbox today...

Here is the link to the website information on the Scholls Ferry Project.
One of design elements are buffered bicycle lanes west of Teal.
The info is limited right now but I can tell you that there will be an open house this summer and one this winter that will provide more of the design information.

Following the link, I got this:

Scholls Ferry Road (Roy Rogers to Teal)

The existing section of SW Scholls Ferry Road between Roy Rogers Road and Teal Boulevard is a two-lane roadway providing north-south access between SW Murray Boulevard and the growing residential areas in southwest Beaverton. Turning onto or from SW Scholls Ferry Road is difficult due to traffic volumes. The roadway also lacks bike lanes and has intermittent sections of sidewalk.

The proposed project will widen Scholls Ferry Road to five lanes, which will consist of two travel lanes in each direction with a continuous center turn lane. This will reduce traffic congestion from the intersection of Teal Boulevard west through Roy Rogers Road. Additional improvements include sidewalks, bike lanes, street lighting and improved sight distance at the intersections.

Funding Information

$2.8 Million

MSTIP - Major Streets Transportation Improvement Project
The funding is for design and right-of-way only. There are no funds for construction at this time.

Current Activity - design

Design for this project has commenced.

Surveyors will be on site gathering field and topographical information such as fence locations, trees, property corner monuments, wells, walls, storm and sanitary manholes, as well as mapping beyond the existing right-of-way when necessary. The information gathered will be used to prepare a project base map that reflects the current topography, right-of-way, soil types, wetland limits, existing utility locations, and other physical features.

Construction start date: 04/29/2013
Estimated completion date: 12/20/2013
