Comment on two Augusta Lane pedestrian improvement projects via an online construction kickoff through Jan. 31.
The Augusta Lane sidewalk improvement project involves construction of a 5-foot-wide concrete sidewalk along the south side of Augusta Lane, between Pheasant Lane and Chatelain Drive. This $101,000 project is funded by the Urban Road Maintenance District (URMD).
The Augusta Lane pedestrian bridge project includes a 350-foot- long, 10-foot-wide pedestrian bridge that will connect the east and west sides of Augusta Lane. This $1.5 million project is funded by the Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP).
The Augusta Lane projects provide a safe walking route to Beaver Acres Elementary School for students who live on the west side of Beaverton Creek and creates access to Tualatin Hills Nature Park and Pheasant Park.
Washington County is committed to planning, building and maintaining a great transportation system, ensuring the safety of all roadway users and operating the County roadway system in a cost-effective and environmentally responsible manner.
