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
IMS is scheduled to conduct the street inventory and condition ratings for 1/3 of all residential streets, all collectors and all arterials from June 15th thru June 18th. Please see map for exact locations.
The City of Beaverton responsibly maintains its roads to prevent long-term condition issues that would require rebuilding. City-maintained streets are frequently inspected, and the Public Works Department resurfaces streets on a regular schedule, which is more cost-effective and less disruptive to residents than rebuilding.

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.
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.
For more information, please contact Deborah Martisak. To see all road closures and traffic advisories in the Washington County area, visit www.wc-roads.com.
