Project Summary & Public Benefits
THPRD is very excited to be connecting Barrows Road in Tigard to the MAX Merlo Station stop in Beaverton. Once construction on this project is finished, it will connect to the newly completed two-mile segment beginning at Davies Road. The trail then weaves through the Tualatin Hills Nature Park, and then a short street route to the Merlo Station MAX Train in Beaverton. Once completed, this regional, commuter trail will span 5.5 to 6 miles, allowing for alternative, safe routes for many modes of transportation.
Segment No. 1 (Barrows Rd to Scholls Ferry Road) of the Westside Trail is a 0.39-mile-long trail that will begin at the Tigard city limits at Barrows Road, connecting the east/west Summercreek Community Trail, then continuing north toward Scholls Ferry Road.
Along with the initial benefit of connecting multiple regional and community trails, this trail will also allow easy access for local patrons to the Murray-Scholls Town Center area.
Segment No. 4 (Galena Way to Rigert Road) of the Westside Trail will connect Galena Way to Rigert Road. After completion, this segment will connect 3.32 miles of the Westside Trail.
Segment No. 7 (Mt. Williams-Burntwood Way to Davis Road) of the Westside Trail will connect Burntwood Way to Davis Road over the Mount Williams parcel. This is a partnership project with the city of Beaverton and is a very challenging segment due to steep topography and existing natural resources (trees).
Due to adverse weather conditions, construction on the trail segments has been postponed. THPRD anticipates construction to resume late May 2013, and the trails to be open in late September 2013.
