The Main Street Project is a multi-year effort to completely redesign and construct the full length of Main Street in Downtown Tigard.

Project Overview

Construction will begin this Fall 2021 to update the northern section of Main Street easier and safer for bikes, pedestrians and cars. The street and sidewalk improvements are part of the Main Street Green Street Phase 2 project, a continuation of the 2014 project that rebuilt the southern half of Main Street in Downtown Tigard.

Phase 2 improvements include northern half of Main Street, from the railroad tracks to Scoffins Street. Once complete, Main Street will be a walkable, accessible and vibrant downtown.

What is Planned?

Pedestrian and environmentally friendly improvements to Main Street include:

• New street lighting
• Improved sidewalks
• Safer pedestrian crossings
• American with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant features
• Stormwater planters
• Street trees; landscaping
• Improved parking
• Improved bus stops with greater visibility, larger shelters and dedicated loading zones
• Safer access to downtown businesses

In addition, aging water lines along Main Street will be replaced.



What Does This Mean for the Downtown?

During construction, there will be traffic delays and detours, limited parking and interrupted pedestrian access. Construction is expected to last twelve
months. The city is committed to minimizing impacts and supporting downtown businesses, employees, customers and residents during construction.

This commitment includes:
• Maintaining access to businesses throughout the project.
• Clearly designating parking locations.
• Providing signage to help pedestrians and cars navigate through the downtown.
• Supporting local businesses through an “Open for Business” campaign.
• Updating downtown businesses about the construction stages and impacts.
• Ensuring compliance with COVID-19 regulations for the construction crew.
• Preserving adequate social distance space on sidewalks and crosswalks during construction.

We understand that this will be a challenge for the local businesses and neighbors who live downtown. If you would like to speak to someone about the specific impacts to your property and business, please contact the project team listed below.
