CIP 3519A - Canyon Rd (Hocken Ave-Short St) Improvements, MTIP

Status: Current project

Project Category: Transportation

Project Estimated Cost: $5,000,000

Project Description

The Canyon Road Streetscape Project is intended to address safety, connectivity, and accessibility issues on 4,900 feet of Canyon Road between SW Hocken Ave and SW Short St. The project will upgrade intersections at Hocken Ave and Cedar Hills Blvd as well as reconstruct Canyon Rd from west of Hocken Ave to Short St. Improvements include sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, lighting, and signalization.

The project requires extensive coordination with ODOT, the agency that has jurisdiction of Canyon Road. ODOT is preparing the project's plans, specifications and estimate, and will advertise and manage the construction contract. Improvements to Hocken Ave on the south side of Canyon Rd are included in CIP 3408 and have been incorporated into CIP 3519A. ODOT has committed $1,000,000 to the project and pledged an additional $1,000,000, in addition to the $3,535,000 in federal transportation funds allocated through the Metro Regional Flexible Funds Allocation (RFFA) process. The City's required match on the federal funds is $405,000 which does not include funding for CIP 3408.
