Project Justification

The proposed improvements are part of the conditions of approval for the Sunset Station & Barnes Road Planned Unit Development (PUD). The U.S. 26/Sunset Highway eastbound off-ramp (exit 68) at Cedar Hills Boulevard is an unsignalized intersection. This prevents safe, timely left turns onto Cedar Hills Boulevard. Hwy 26.

City, ODOT, WASHCO and Peterkort Corporation have agreed in an intergovernmental agreement to contribute to the cost of roadway and signal improvements at the intersection of Cedar Hills Blvd and the eastbound ramp to Hwy 26. WASHCO has the lead in project design, ROW acquisition, and construction.
