NW Bethany US 26 Overcrossing/Bronson
This project will widen NW Bethany Boulevard as it crosses over US 26 via a two-span bridge. The project will also widen NW Bethany Boulevard between Bronson and NW Cornell Road and as well as add a second right hand turn lane on the westbound collector/distributor road (north of US 26).
NW Bethany Boulevard crosses over US 26 via a two-span bridge owned by the Oregon Department of Transportation. Washington County has jurisdiction for NW Bethany Boulevard and traffic analysis and planning efforts have concluded that NW Bethany Boulevard and the associated bridge must be widened to accommodate an increasing capacity need.
