Construction update and family events in September

The Walnut Street project closure has been extended through August 27. The contractor is installing the creek culvert and the storm and sanitary sewer pipes (which are 20 feet deep in places).  The extended closure allows more work to be completed before school starts.

More details can be found on all road and construction work in Tigard at: http://www.tigard-or.gov/community/construction.php.

Get ready for three days of Family Fest events on Sept. 9, 10 and 11. There will be an outdoor movie, a fun run, a Tour de Parks local bike ride, the Tigard Downtown Street Fair and a Tour of Latin America event, also in downtown.
