99W at Hall Blvd and Greenburg/Main

PROJECT PAGES

"Moving 99W Forward". Washington County worked with the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), and the City of Tigard to combine and construct two roadway improvement projects: Highway 99W at SW Hall Boulevard and SW Greenburg Road/SW Main Street.

Highway 99W and SW Hall Boulevard (Hwy 141) are both state highways under ODOT's jurisdiction. These two, along with SW Greenburg Road and SW Main Street are all within Tigard's city limits.

Washington County managed the project in close coordination with the other two jurisdictions.

PROJECT NEED  
The 99W corridor was severely congested during peak travel periods with average daily traffic (ADT) at 50,000 vehicles per day. Traffic congestion was a safety and air quality concern and lead to driver frustration. The completed project improves safety and capacity by allowing more efficient signal operation and increased traffic flow. 

IMPROVEMENTS  

  1. SW Hall Boulevard / Northbound at Hwy 99W – Added an additional lane to provide separate left, through, and right turn lanes.
  2. SW Hall Boulevard / Southbound at Hwy 99W – Added an additional lane to provide separate left, through, and right turn lanes.
  3. SW Greenburg Road / 99W – Added an additional lane to provide separate left, through, and right turn lanes.
  4. SW Main Street / 99W – Added an additional lane to provide separate left, through, and right turn lanes.
  5. Highway 99W – Added an additional eastbound lane from west of SW Main Street/SW Greenburg Road to the Highway 217 on-ramps.
  6. Extended the existing median island on Highway 99W from SW Hall Boulevard to ORE 217.

Throughout the project corridor there are widened sidewalks, new bike lanes, improved pedestrian crossings, as well as updated bus stops and shelters. To improve the flow of truck traffic, all corners now have a larger turning radius.
