Road Construction

Beaverton’s Public Works Department enhances public safety through the good maintenance of city streets. Summer is when Tualatin Valley cities pave roads. Overall, Beaverton has good roads because staff constantly track conditions, looking for cracks and potholes. City staff work hard to reduce impacts of this work on the public, however some disruptions are unavoidable.
  • Residential roads and travel lanes will remain open to local traffic
  • On the day work is scheduled, vehicles and other objects will need to be cleared from the street
  • Expect traffic delays, detours and construction noise between 7 am and 6 pm
  • Drivers advised to use alternate routes during paving hours
  • Road projects may cause occasional delays and inconveniences
  • City committed to completing work as quickly as possible, while providing quality product

Major Projects

Sidewalk Curb Ramp Retrofit Project


The city is making improvements to curb ramps, bringing them up to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. To minimize disruption to residents, this work will be done at the same time as street paving in neighborhoods.
Curb retrofit map for 2017

New curb ramps will be installed where needed and improvements will be made to existing ramps. This may include grading the ramp, adding texture to the sidewalk, or improving the street landing.

Paving will take place between mid-March and October. Curb ramp and utility improvements will be done before paving overlays.

Total construction time on each street will be about 10 days for curb ramps and 5 days for paving, weather permitting. Residents will receive notice about two weeks before paving begins.
