Safe Routes to School for Tualatin View

srtsSidewalks, ADA ramps, stairs, curbs, crosswalks and road improvements will make it much safer for the students of West Tualatin View Elementary to make their way to the neighborhood school, once construction is completed on this project, funded by a grant from the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Erik Furby, Engineering Assistant for Washington County, explains, “The project came about when a few community activists got together with the school district to apply for a "Safe Routes to School" grant from ODOT. Because roads in the area are under County jurisdiction, we at Washington County capital projects are managing the project.”

The project will build a sidewalk on the south side of Leahy Road from 90th to 88th, and on Stark St. between 88th Ave (north leg) and 88th Ave (south leg). Furby says, “We will also be improving ADA access at the 90th/Leahy and 88th/Leahy intersections and replacing the ramp from 88th/Leahy onto the school property. This construction will be taking place from June to August of 2013.”

The school district, in addition, has stated that they will be improving ADA access on the school property also. This will be taking place in the spring of 2013, prior to the county construction project.

We applaud the persistent involvement of neighborhood residents in bringing various agencies together to improve conditions for everyone.
