The Thatcher Road intersection with Gales Creek Road (OR-8) will be realigned for improved sight distance and prepare the intersection for a future traffic signal (not part of this project.)

We will also install: 

  • A crosswalk across Gales Creek Road with a Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB)
  • A sidewalk on the north side of Thatcher Road between pathway at Snapdragon Lane and Gales Creek Road 
  • A sidewalk on the south side of Gales Creek Road between Talisman Lane and the crosswalk
  • A paved pad for GroveLink bus stop

 

Construction start (excepted): Spring 2023
Construction finish (expected): December 2023

 

Update 6/27/2022: Design is about 90% complete. The right-of-way process has not yet started.
