Tualatin Valley Highway

Tualatin Valley Highway is the only east-west route connecting the communities of Beaverton, Aloha-Reedville, Hillsboro, Cornelius and Forest Grove. Today, crossing the highway is dangerous; accessing transit is difficult and unpleasant; and driving along the highway is frustrating and nerve-wracking. A bike lane exists along some of the corridor, but it is inadequate even for some of the strongest and most fearless bicyclists, due to unsafe intersections, gaps in the bike lane, and frequent driveways along large developments. Many bicyclists and pedestrians are often forced to go far out of their way to avoid compromising their safety on TV Highway.

There are many ways to improve safety on TV Highway and make it an attractive corridor for business and travel. A trail along the highway, physically protected bike lanes, more street lighting, better pedestrian crossings, and transit stop improvements could transform the corridor into a safer, better-functioning, multi-modal link in Washington County’s transportation system.

 

STATUS The Street Trust is committed to winning complete sidewalks, safe crossings, and a protected bike lane or multi-use path along the entire length of the highway. In the summer of 2015, we built a movement of more than 1,500 supporters calling for a safer TV Highway. Now, we’re turning that support into a successful push for on-the-ground projects that make a difference in people’s lives.
