Delays and Closures

Traffic Delay Notification for Sidewalk Curb Ramp Retrofit Project

The sidewalk curb ramp retrofit(s) will commence September 26th, weather-dependent.

The City of Beaverton’s Public Works Department will be making improvements to sidewalk curb ramps, bringing them up to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. The reason why is for safe pedestrian accessibility and the Federal Highway Administration requires that the sidewalk curb ramps be upgraded to meet current standards prior to pavement resurfacing.

Brown Contractors has been contracted to retrofit the sidewalk curb ramps that are highlighted in blue on the map herein on Lombard Ave. between 1st Street and including 5th Street. The curb ramp retrofit(s)will commence the week of September 13, 2018, weather-dependent.

Street resurfacing work will begin at 7 a.m. and finish no later than 4 p.m. each day. Traffic lanes will remain open to local traffic and flagged, as needed. The city will complete the project as quickly as possible and work to minimize inconvenience, but there will be occasional delays.

This work is in preparation for resurfacing which is currently scheduled for the 2nd week in October, pending weather. Resurfacing streets regularly, rather than allowing them to deteriorate, saves money for the city. Pavement resurfacing overlay is considerably less expensive than rebuilding streets. Beaverton inspects its streets frequently to determine which roads are in need of paving.

2018 Paving & Curbs

The City of Beaverton is making improvements to curb ramps, bringing them up to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. Improvements to curb ramps will be done before street paving in neighborhoods is scheduled. 

Public works crew spreading cement to form a curb ramp.

New curb ramps will be installed where needed and improvements will be made to existing ramps. This may include grading the ramp, adding texture to the sidewalk, or improving the street landing.

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.

Summer 2018

Paving will take place between mid-March and October. Curb ramp and utility improvements will be done before paving overlays.

Improvements to Curb Ramps, Utilities, Resurfacing Streets

If there is landscape restoration, damage to private property or anything needing to be brought back to its original condition, due to the construction of the curb ramps, please contact public works so we can have the contractor rectify.
