The route you’re familiar with through the construction zone on Farmington Road is about to change. The City of Beaverton will temporarily shift traffic between Murray and Hocken starting on Wednesday, January 20. The adjustment will last four to five weeks as crews complete installation of a sewer line.
Currently, both the westbound and eastbound lanes are on the north side of Farmington Road. Beginning Wednesday, the westbound lane will be on the north side of Farmington and the eastbound lane will be on the south side. Crews plan to occassionally reduce traffic down to one lane between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Flaggers will move traffic in both directions through the area and left turns will remain restricted between Murray and Hocken. You should expect long delays on Farmington. Use Tualatin Valley Highway or Allen Boulevard to avoid the congestion.
Pedestrians will still need to use the north side of Farmington during the sewer line work. Once the sewer line work is complete, widening of the north side will begin and both directions of traffic will then be shifted to the south side of Farmington Road. Pedestrians will then use the new sidewalk on the south side at that time. The project started this last summer and will take two years to complete.
