Consultation has concluded

The City of Tigard is proposing to complete two projects on SW Frewing Street in the next year.

The first project will replace aged and undersized culvert pipes at the low point of the roadway near the Cypress Crest Apartment complex.

The second project provides safety improvements by gap-filling sidewalks on the east side of SW Frewing Street between Pacific Hwy (99W) and SW Ash Avenue.

To share information safely during the COVID-19 pandemic, this page will be updated with information about both projects.

Culvert Project FAQ

1.Question: If the road is going to be closed for the storm project, what does the detour look like?

The detour route will direct vehicles down Barnum and then Garrett St to Pacific Hwy or Ash Avenue.

2. Question: I live in the Cypress Crest Apartments. Will I still be able to use my driveway during the storm project? It looks like it will be closed.

Prior to closing the driveway closest to Pacific Hwy, the contractor will build a temporary access route that takes cars south up Frewing St. to the detour route (Barnum to Garrett St.).

3. Question: I live in the Orchard Park Apartments. How will my access be affected during the storm project?

The one-way exit will remain open to cars leaving the apartment complex. All vehicles will be directed to Pacific Hwy as the roadway will be closed.

Sidewalk Project FAQ

1. Question: When will the sidewalk project start?

The sidewalk construction is expected to start in March 2021 and be completed by May 2021.

2. Question: Why put sidewalk on only one side of the street?

The project will be primarily funding through a Washington County Community Development Block Grant and construction costs limited the improvements to one side of the road.

3. Question: How did you choose which side of the road to put the sidewalk on?

We walked the roadway and looked at the side that would require the least amount of work to match in with existing driveways and keep the sidewalk within the existing right of way.

4. Question: Will my driveway be blocked during construction?

When sidewalk and driveway approaches are constructed on active properties, common practice is to build half a driveway at a time to maintain access to the property.
