Washington County's Department of Land Use and Transportation invites the public to attend a neighborhood open house on September 24 for the 124th Avenue extension project. The event will be held at the Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue Training Center, 12400 SW Tonquin Road, Sherwood. The public is invited to drop in anytime between 5:30 and 8 p.m. to learn more about the project.  Project staff from Washington County, along with its design engineer, David Evans and Associates, Inc. will be available to answer questions and solicit feedback.

This project proposes to extend SW 124th Avenue to the south from Tualatin-Sherwood Road to Tonquin Road as an interim two-lane arterial. The extension of SW 124th Avenue has been identified as a critical transportation link to serve future industrial lands being planned by the cities of Tualatin and Sherwood. Construction is anticipated to begin summer 2014.

This project is funded through the county’s Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP).
