192nd Avenue (FY 2020-22 Pedestrian Improvement)
Question: Can at least one accessible sidewalk be constructed along the entire length of 192nd Avenue, between Tualatin Valley Highway and Stacy Street?
Answer: Currently, there are sections of sidewalk along both sides of 192nd Avenue. This scope of this project only includes the construction of sidewalk so it is continuous on one side of 192nd Avenue, either the east or the west side, between Tualatin Valley Highway and Trelane Street. To propose additional pedestrian improvements, please submit a Pedestrian and Biking Improvement Proposal Form.
Question: Will sidewalk be constructed on the east side of 192nd Avenue. Is it possible to tie into the footpath bridge off Christopher Avenue to 192nd Avenue?
Answer: Design Alternative 2 proposes sidewalk construction along the east side of 192nd Avenue. If Design Alternative 1 is selected, a curb ramp crossing at Trelane Street would be constructed. This would tie into the east and west sides at that intersection, making the footpath bridge from Christopher Avenue accessible with only a minor amount of backtracking, assuming Tualatin Valley Highway is the ultimate destination.
Question: Can sidewalks be constructed on 192nd Avenue all the way to Johnson Street?
Answer: The scope of this project is solely on 192nd Avenue, between Tualatin Valley Highway and Trelane Street. To propose additional pedestrian improvements, please submit a Pedestrian and Biking Improvement Proposal Form.
Question: Why are both project alternatives not being done?
Answer: One of the goals of the Urban Road Maintenance District (URMD) Fund is to add or infill sidewalk on eligible roads in urban unincorporated Washington County. The project candidate list currently has 200 proposed sites. Over the last five fiscal years, the Road Fund has completed roughly seven projects per fiscal year. To try and make funding available for more candidate projects to become realized, typically the candidate projects only receive sidewalk on one side through the candidate project site.
