Farmington Road (Murray to Hocken) Improvement Project
Farmington Road between Murray Boulevard and Hocken Avenue was a heavily-used four-lane section of roadway lacking continuous bicycle and pedestrian facilities. This project provided safety and traffic capacity improvements to this section of Farmington Road, for all modes of transportation.
- Roadway widening to five lanes (two travel lanes in each direction and center turn lane)
- Continuous bicycle facilities
- Continuous pedestrian facilities
- Street lighting
- Realignment of 141st and 142nd Avenues
- Additional turn lanes at Murray Boulevard
- Stormwater, sanitary sewer and water infrastructure
- Box Culvert over Erickson Creek
Design for the improvements was initially funded in 2001 with federal funds for the preliminary design. The design was developed through a yearlong public process that included a Project Advisory Committee, as well as public open houses and individual property owner meetings. The design was shelved at the 90% design milestone, pending right of way and construction funding.
While awaiting final design/construction funding, the City of Beaverton received a Nature in the Neighborhood Grant from Metro for a site adjacent to Erickson Creek. The City constructed new wetlands for flood storage, as well as water quality swales that ultimately received stormwater from the Farmington Road improvements.
Funding was secured in 2013 through Washington County’s MSTIP and the project was restarted. The project was bid in April 2015 and awarded to K&E Excavating. Construction of this $22 Million project was completed in August 2017.
The City of Beaverton managed the construction with assistance from Washington County and Harper Houf Peterson Righellis Inc. (HHPR). The design and construction of the project included management by the City of Beaverton and Washington County and design services from HHPR, DKS Associates, GeoDesign, Mason Bruce & Girard and Pavement Services Inc.
