Durham Road and Upper Boones Ferry Road
Safety and traffic flow will be improved for travelers on the Durham and Upper Boones Ferry roads corridor, an east-west route between the OR-99W and I-5 highways.
A traffic signal system that can rapidly adjust signal timing based on traffic conditions will be installed at intersections along the corridor. A signalized crosswalk will be installed at 88th Avenue and Durham Road, at the Tigard High School.
This project is part of the County's Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) which uses technology to improve transportation safety and reliability. This project includes:
- Adaptive signal timing that allows traffic signals to change in response to traffic.
- Enhanced bike detection systems to adjust traffic signals when a bicyclist is present.
- Traveler information displays to provide traffic information to road users.
- Remote signal monitoring and control to allow staff to manually adjust traffic control as needed.
- Inclusion in regional traffic signal management system, which improves signal performace across the state.
This $1.1 million project is funded through the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) with a contribution from Washington County and the city of Tigard.
