Click here for the latest project update sent November 25, 2019.

This project will construct a critical segment of the Red Electric Trail system, a pedestrian and bicycle bridge between Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway and SW Capitol Highway.  This trail segment will include a 10-foot wide trail from the intersection of SW Bertha Boulevard and Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway, travelling south over a ravine on a 14-foot wide bridge, where it will intersect with SW Capitol Highway.


Additional project elements include:

· Retaining walls

· Lighting

· Guardrail work along Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway

· Sidewalk curb ramps

· Pedestrian and bicycle crosswalk striping

· Grading and drainage

· Vegetated stormwater facility

· Tree mitigation plantings

The design phase of this project is scheduled to wrap up in spring of 2020 and construction is proposed to begin in late 2020.
