Fanno Creek Trail – Hall Blvd crossing open house

Neighbors and other interested citizens are invited to attend and share their ideas about how best to provide a safe crossing at the intersection of the Fanno Creek Trail and Hall Boulevard for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers.

FCT-Hall Boulevard Crossing Open House
March 1, 2012
Elsie Stuhr Center - Fir Room
5550 SW Hall Boulevard, Beaverton, Oregon, 97005
6–8p.m., including a presentation at 6:30 p.m.

Participants will get an overview of the project’s purpose and learn about the two options (overcrossing and undercrossing) still under consideration. Project staff will be available to answer questions and discuss views citizens may have about the project.

Public input was gathered on four crossing options at an open house in September 2011and was shared with the citizen-based Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC). The SAC was charged with screening the alternatives down to the two most feasible and acceptable options.

The two options were presented to a number of community groups and advisory committees for additional feedback and were finally presented to the Beaverton City Council (December 2011) and the THPRD Board of Directors (January 2012) for their input.

Public input received at the March 1 open house will be used by the project team to determine the preferred crossing option, which will then be taken to the City Council and THPRD Board of Directors for their respective approvals later this spring.

THPRD is leading the project, which is made possible through federal funds administered by the Oregon Department of Transportation and Metro. The City of Beaverton is an active participant.

Please visit the project website at www.fannocrossinghall.org for more information, including information from the September open house, SAC meeting information, and the small group meeting notes.
