County looks at adding two roads off of Tualatin-Sherwood/Roy Rogers roads

by: WASHINGTON COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF LAND USE & TRANSPORTATION - The dotted lines represent where two new roads could be added once the city's transportation system plan is amended.Adding two future roads set for construction off of Tualatin-Sherwood Road/Roy Rogers Road near the Highway 99W intersection will be the topic of discussion during a special neighborhood meeting set for Wednesday, July 17.

The Washington County Department of Land Use & Transportation will host the meeting, designed to review a proposed amendment to Sherwood’s transportation system plan, at 5:30 p.m. at the Sherwood Police Department, 20495 S.W. Borchers Drive.

One of those roads would extend Baler Way to the north, cross Tualatin-Sherwood Road and hook up to the future extension of Langer Farms Parkway near Home Depot. The other road would begin at Highway 99W at The Home Depot, cross Highway 99W heading east before hooking up in the back of the Hunter’s Ridge complex and then connecting with the north side of Borcher’s Drive at Roy Rogers Road.

Stephen Roberts, communications coordinator for the Washington County Department of Land Use and Transportation, said while there’s no specific funding set aside for the two proposed roads, the county may build a portion of the Baler Way extension to provide access to businesses and properties along the route.

He pointed out that the county’s push for the two roads has nothing to do with the recent proposal to site a Walmart off of Tualatin-Sherwood Road at Langer Farms Parkway.

Meanwhile, road striping along Tualatin-Sherwood Road from Nyberg Road to Highway 99W begins Wednesday night.
