Scholls Ferry Road (Roy Rogers to Teal)
The section of Scholls Ferry Road between Roy Rogers Road and Teal Boulevard was previously a two-lane roadway providing access between Murray Boulevard and the growing residential areas in southwest Beaverton. Turning onto or from SW Scholls Ferry Road was challenging due to heavy traffic volumes. This section of roadway also lacked bicycle facilities and had intermittent sections of sidewalk.
This project widened Scholls Ferry Road to five lanes - 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 included sidewalks, bicycle lanes, street lighting and improved sight distance at the intersections.
In conjunction with this project, City of Tigard, City of Beaverton and Clean Water Services also upgraded their utility lines. By coordinating all four projects during approximately the same time frame, it resulted in an overall cost savings and limited the duration of traffic impacts by tacking on to the road widening project's timeline.

The total project cost noted above includes the estimated cost of design, right-of-way and construction and is subject to change.
Current Activity - completed
Activity Update 12/31/14: This project is substantially complete. Remaining work includes the redesign of a power source for the street lighting on the south side (which will be done by PGE), fiber optic cable installation and minor punch list items.
The temporary speed limit was lifted as of December 29, 2014 and all lanes are open to traffic with the exception of the eastbound right lane between Roy Rogers Road and Barrows Road, which remains restricted while the city completes their utility project.
Many thanks for everyone's patience during this project and we hope you enjoy the improvements!
