About Street Maintenance
Beaverton’s Public Works Department enhances public safety through the timely maintenance of city streets. Summer is when Tualatin Valley cities usually pave roads. Overall, Beaverton has good roads because staff consistently tracks conditions and makes street maintenance a priority. City staff work hard to reduce impacts of this work on the public, however some disruptions are unavoidable.
- Residential roads and travel lanes will remain open to local traffic
- On the day work is scheduled, vehicles and other objects will need to be cleared from the street
- Expect traffic delays, detours and construction noise between 7 am and 6 pm
- Drivers advised to use alternate routes during paving hours
- Road projects may cause occasional delays and inconveniences
- City committed to completing work as quickly as possible, while providing quality product
The City of Beaverton responsibly maintains its roads to prevent long-term condition issues that would require rebuilding. City-maintained streets are frequently inspected, and the Public Works Department resurfaces streets on a regular schedule, which is more cost-effective and less disruptive to residents than rebuilding.
Improvements to Curb Ramps, Utilities, Resurfacing Streets
The City of Beaverton’s Public Works Department is in the process of making improvements to curb ramps, sidewalks, hydrants and catch basins in preparation for street overlays. As part of the paving process, the city also lowers water valves and manholes in construction areas. Crews will work from 7 am to no later than 5 pm each day to minimize impacts on the neighborhood. Traffic lanes will be flagged and remain open to local traffic. The city will complete the project as quickly as possible and work to minimize inconvenience, but there will be occasional delays. Watch for barricades indicating “No Parking” and the dates of when the resurfacing will occur. Transportation improvements including street overlays, curb ramp retrofits, and utility update projects are a priority for the city. These processes are aimed at maintaining high quality roads for safe traveling throughout the City of Beaverton.
* If there is landscape restoration, damage to private property or anything needing to be brought back to its original condition due to any of these processes, please contact Public Works so we can have it correct it as soon as possible.
About Street Maintenance Overlay Projects
In preparation for paving, city landscapers will come through the neighborhood and trim the trees, so the milling and paving equipment don’t damage the trees by tearing off the branches.
City staff will begin each years’ paving projects beginning as early as April, but all projects are weather dependent. Streets will be milled and prepped for paving, then clean-up and finally hot asphalt paving will commence.
Traffic lanes will be flagged and remain open to local traffic. The city will complete the project as quickly as possible and work to minimize inconvenience, but there will be occasional delays. Watch for barricades, with work dates, indicating “No Parking.”
The city’s priority is to ensure all property owners can get in and out of their driveways. Mail delivery and garbage pick-up will not be interrupted. If you have special deliveries, project(s) or need(s), please contact Public Works for help accommodating special scheduling needs.
Please keep in mind that the tack coat that is put down prior to the asphalt overlay is very messy and does not clean-up easily and the asphalt itself is very HOT! Safety is our first priority, so please keep young children and pets inside during this time.
Resurfacing streets regularly, rather than allowing them to deteriorate, saves money for the city. Pavement resurfacing overlays are considerably less expensive than rebuilding streets. Beaverton inspects its streets frequently to determine which roads are in need of paving.
If you have questions about the paving, please call 503-526-4084 (Public Works, Operations Office) or email Public Works.
