Roy Rogers Road project open house Oct. 12

For Immediate Release: Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Sponsored by: Department of Land Use & Transportation, Engineering & Construction Services Division

100255 Roy Roger Road open house locationAn open house for the Roy Rogers Road improvement project will be 5-7 p.m. Oct. 12 at Scholls Heights Elementary, 16400 SW Loon Drive.

The open house, sponsored by Washington County Department of Land Use & Transportation (LUT), provides the public with the opportunity to learn about final design for upcoming road improvements on Roy Rogers Road between Scholls Ferry Road and 2500 feet south of Bull Mountain Road.

The Roy Rogers Road project is coordinating with the Willamette Water Supply Program pipeline installation. Representatives from LUT and Willamette Water Supply will be available to answer questions. No formal presentation is planned; stop in any time during open house hours. 

This project will widen Roy Rogers Road between Scholls Ferry Road and 2500 feet south of Bull Mountain Road to five lanes (two travel lanes in each direction and a center turn lane). The project will include continuous bike lanes and sidewalks, street lighting, storm drainage upgrades and safety enhancements. The Willamette Water Supply Program, a partnership between Tualatin Valley Water District and the city of Hillsboro to build an additional regional water supply system in Washington County, will be constructing a 66 inch drinking water pipeline in conjunction with the roadway improvements. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2018 and is expected to be substantially completed in spring 2020.

The $24.9 million road improvement project is funded through the MSTIP Bonding Cost-share Program.
