124th Avenue Extension groundbreaking is Nov. 12

The groundbreaking celebration for the Washington County 124th Avenue Extension and Willamette Water Supply Program (WWSP) Pipeline projects will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12, at the south side of Tualatin-Sherwood Road and SW 124th Avenue.

The $30 million 124th Avenue Extension will include a new, two-lane road from Tualatin-Sherwood Road to Grahams Ferry Road. Safety improvements will also be constructed on both Tonquin and Grahams Ferry roads. Road improvements total 4.4 miles. As private development occurs, the road will be widened to five lanes.

The roadway extension will connect Tualatin, Sherwood, and Wilsonville, and provide access to land designated for industrial and employment development in all three communities. WWSP's first section of earthquake-resilient water transmission pipeline will be installed in the new road right-of-way.   Media Release

These meetings are intended to serve as a forum for the developer, affected CPOs, and property owners within the required notification buffer (500 feet in urban areas; 1,000 feet in rural areas) to discuss the proposal prior to the developer submitting an application to the county. County staff do not schedule these meetings and do not attend them. For more information, see the Mandatory Neighborhood Meeting & Mailings Requirements.
