CIP 3519A - Canyon Road MTIP

Canyon Road Intersection Improvements MTIP 

Project Description:

This Metro Transportation Improvement Plan project is intended to address safety, connectivity, and accessibility issues on 4,900 feet of Canyon Road between SW Hocken Ave and SW Short St. The project will upgrade intersections at Hocken Ave and Cedar Hills Blvd as well as reconstruct Canyon Rd from west of Hocken Ave to Short St. Improvements include sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, lighting, and signalization. The sidewalk crossing on Beaverton Creek may also be widened. The project requires extensive coordination with ODOT, the agency that has jurisdiction of Canyon Rd. A bike route alternative to Canyon Rd is contained in CIP 3518. Improvements to Hocken Ave on the south side of Canyon Rd are included in CIP 3408. CIP 3408 has been incorporated into CIP 3519A.
