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.
This $12 million project was funded through the County's Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP).
