Website helps travelers navigate multiple construction zones
For Immediate Release: Friday, May 18, 2018
GetUsThere.org, a website providing construction information in the Roy Rogers Road area, has been created to inform travelers about possible delays or detours.
Washington County Department of Land Use & Transportation (LUT), Clean Water Services, city of Tigard and Willamette Water Supply Program all have construction projects that impact travel in the Roy Rogers Road area. GetUsThere.org will provide travelers a one-stop source for traffic impacts. The website includes an interactive map of all projects – both existing and future. It also includes a project list in text/table form.
"All four jurisdictions are working together to minimize traffic impacts as much as possible," said Andrew Singelakis, director, LUT. "While the construction schedule is complex, the timing of these projects is critical."
Jurisdictions scheduled some of these projects concurrently to save money and to minimize road construction impacts over time.
"We understand that road construction is inconvenient for everyone," Singelakis said. "The Roy Rogers area will be challenging for all of us. We encourage the public to visit GetUsThere.org to get updates. We appreciate everyone's patience."
