Improvements include widening the roadway to five lanes (two travel lanes in each direction with a center turn lane), continuous bicycle and pedestrian facilities, street lighting and utility upgrades.

Road widening work is funded through phase 3D of the county’s Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP). Water and sanitary system improvements will be funded by the City of Beaverton. Construction is anticipated to begin fall 2014 with completion by summer 2016.
