SW 121st Avenue: Improvements for Walking & Biking

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Tigard and Washington County have partnered to bring new sidewalks, bikelanes, lighting and drainage facilities to SW 121st Avenue between Tippitt Place and Whistlers Loop.

Why is this project needed?

SW 121st Avenue, between Tippitt Place and Whistlers Loop in the city of Tigard, has two travel lanes, limited street lighting, no bikelanes, intermittent sidewalks and inadequate drainage facilities. This section of 121st Avenue is adjacent to densely populated residential neighborhoods.

What is the solution?

This project will improve safety and traffic flow on 121st Avenue with:

  • Continuous sidewalks
  • Bicycle facilities
  • Street lighting
  • Drainage facilities

The city will install a 24-inch water main as part of this project. This coordination will lower the cost of the water project and minimize road and traffic impacts.
