Beaverton’s Public Works Department enhances public safety through the good maintenance of city streets. Summer is when Tualatin Valley cities pave roads. Overall, Beaverton has good roads because staff constantly track conditions, looking for cracks and potholes. 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 will be making improvements to curb ramps, utilities, and then resurfacing streets in your neighborhood this up-coming year.
The city will be making improvements to curb ramps, bringing them up to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. This work must be completed before paving can occur. All improvements will take place between mid-January and September 2018. You will receive another notice two weeks prior to when paving starts in your neighborhood. The affected area is bounded by SW Carr St, SW Sorrento, SW Scholls Ferry Road, and SW Murray Blvd. See the map.
During work in your neighborhood, you may not be able to drive or park on your street. Specific signs will indicate where travel and parking are restricted. Crews will work from 7 am to no later than 5 pm each day to minimize impact(s) to the neighborhood.
Transportation improvements are one of the Beaverton City Council’s priorities for 2018, including pedestrian and sidewalk improvement projects. The city works hard to maintain local streets, including regular resurfacing to prevent deterioration.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we make improvements. If you have questions, contact the public works operations office at 971-246-0252 or email dmartisak@BeavertonOregon.gov.
Street Maintenance Projects
The Street Maintenance Section enhances public safety through the preservation of our city streets. Maintenance is accomplished through pavement resurfacing, surface patching and crack sealing to prevent water infiltration and replacing deteriorated sections. Major resurfacing projects such as asphalt overlays are prioritized through a pavement Management System software program.
