Tigard engineers are working furiously with ODOT on signal timing issues related to the traffic signal removal at the intersection of 72nd Avenue with Hampton Street. This happened last night (April 30) and the contractor has since restriped 72nd Avenue where it crosses over Hwy 217.
Left turns are no longer allowed at the 72nd/Hampton intersection and traffic will be directed to use Beveland Street instead. The contractors sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this will cause for some people in the immediate area, traffic analysis showed that this signal removal is necessary to preserve the function of 72nd Avenue in this northern part of the Hwy 217 interchange area.
Thank you so much for your patience during this disruption.
