Boones Ferry Road Project Update

The right-of-way acquisition phase for the Boones Ferry Road Improvement Project is underway.  The City will be acquiring right-of-way, permanent easements and two-year temporary construction easements from approximately 50 properties along Boones Ferry Road and its side streets.  These acquisitions are necessary in order to construct the project.  Due to the large number of properties involved, the acquisition process, which includes conducting appraisals and sending out offer letters, will occur over the next several months.  While some property owners may have already received offers, others may not get theirs for another two or three months.  The goal is to present all offers by the end of May.

Design of the project continues with the final plans scheduled to be completed this fall.  The Project Advisory Committee is currently making decisions on the design of the expanded sidewalk areas, plantings throughout the corridor, and how art and history of the Lake Grove area will be incorporated into the project.  An open house will be held later this spring/summer for the public to view the design plans and talk with the design team and advisory committee members about the project. The next PAC meeting is scheduled for May 2nd, 9:00 am – 11:00 am in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 380 A Avenue.

Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2018 and is anticipated to last two years.  During construction, Boones Ferry Road is expected to remain open to traffic and access to businesses will be maintained during their business hours.

Next PAC Meeting February 21, 2017

The PAC meeting originally scheduled for January 21 has been cancelled.  This will provide the design team and PAC Subcommittees additional time to prepare recommendations on the streetscape design.

December Boones Ferry Road Update

The November 15th meeting of the Project Advisory Committee (PAC) meeting was primarily devoted to selecting a design concept for the four signalized intersections along Boones Ferry Road at Madrona, Firwood/Bryant, McDonald’s and Oakridge/Reese. The PAC settled on an all asphalt intersection with vertical markers (yet to be designed) in the medians to help delineate the intersections. The group felt that the intersection options with concrete crosswalks and center area created excessive traffic and access impacts to businesses and neighborhoods due to their extended construction periods, were too costly, and wouldn’t maintain their initial aesthetic appeal over the long term. The group also heard updates on the 60% design package costs and a revised PAC meeting schedule.

From January to June 2017, the PAC will be busy finalizing the streetscape design, including the selection of materials, plants, furnishings and art. At the same time, the project team will be working on right-of-way acquisitions and moving towards the 95% design package. Construction is anticipated to begin in early 2018.

There will be no PAC in December. The next PAC meeting is scheduled for Tuesday January 18th, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in Lake Oswego City Council Chambers.

August PAC Meeting Update

The August 16th meeting of the Project Advisory Committee meeting resulted in a number of significant streetscape materials decisions along with agreement on how to proceed with the Quarry Road intersection. Quarry Road will be realigned as best as possible to improve sight lines for traffic entering Boones Ferry Road. There will continue to be a landscaped island with a neighborhood sign that provides a pedestrian refuge when crossing the street. Streetscape decisions included selection of light pole type (including the base, fixtures and mounting bracket location), sidewalk scoring pattern and pavers at trees, and expanded sidewalk area finishes and pedestrian button pole locations. A discussion of signalized intersection treatments reaffirmed that crosswalks should be highlighted with concrete. The decision of whether to make the entire intersection concrete or leave it asphalt was tabled until the next meeting.

The next PAC meeting is scheduled for Tuesday September 20, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in Lake Oswego City Council Chambers.
