(Sept. 28, 2021) Due to the oversized load and for the safety of travelers, the delivery and unloading of 100 foot steel girders for the Red Electric Bridge Project will require temporary traffic delays and lane closures on SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway and SW Capitol Highway near the intersection of SW Bertha Boulevard on Wednesday, Sept. 29 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
We ask the public to travel cautiously, observe all directions by temporary traffic signals and flaggers, and use alternate routes if possible.
PBOT greatly appreciates the patience and understanding of nearby residents and businesses. Learn what you can expect in our work zones and how you can help everyone stay safe by watching this video: https://youtu.be/lx3RkJjkjSE
The Red Electric Bridge includes a 10-foot wide trail from the intersection of SW Bertha Boulevard and Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway, travelling south over a ravine on a 12-foot-wide bridge where it will intersect with SW Capitol Highway. The bridge project will also construct new lighting, update guardrails along SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway, as well as add ADA sidewalk curb ramps, pedestrian and bicycle crosswalk striping, improve grading and drainage, build retaining walls and a new stormwater facility, and plant new trees and vegetation in and around the new bridge. Construction is expected to be complete in Spring 2022.
