72nd Avenue Transportation Study

Project Background

72nd Avenue plays a vital role in the city’s vision to improve the Tigard Triangle. A strategic plan for the area envisions a vibrant core with people living and working within walking distance to small shops, restaurants and parks.

To help make the vision a reality, city staff is working with the community to develop a strategy for growth and investments that support multiple types of travel. The outcome will be a plan with recommendations for things like the number of travel lanes, safety improvements for pedestrians, the location of street crossings and more.

Engagement

Community input for this project will be gathered online and in person. Topics include:

  • Corridor aspirations (Winter 2018)
  • Design alternatives and analysis (Spring 2019)
  • Preferred alternative ( Summer 2019)

Design Alternatives Survey

72nd Avenue plays a vital role in the city’s vision to improve driving, biking, walking and transit access in the Tigard Triangle. A strategic plan for the area envisions a vibrant core with people living and working within walking distance to small shops, restaurants and parks. However, there is limited space available, and multiple competing needs: protected bike lanes, more lanes for car travel, street furniture and more are all completing for the same space.

We need your help to develop a plan for 72nd Avenue. Help us understand what future investments will be most important for the corridor. This survey closes May 3, 2019.

Bike Treatments

Adopted plans for the Triangle prioritize movement - the ability to get in, around, and through the Triangle. Separating bicyclists from other users on busy streets can increase comfort and the number of riders.

Parking

On one hand, parking provides ready access to future businesses and residences along 72nd Avenue. On the other hand, parking and pedestrian/bike facilities may compete for the same space or result in a wider street.

How would you like to see parking incorporated into the final design?
