Garden Corner Curves
Welcome to the City of Tualatin’s Garden Corner Curves project website!
CONSTRUCTION IS UNDERWAY!
Phase 1 construction is complete!
Phase 2 construction began in January 2021.
Check the project schedule here. Check back for more details!
The road is open!
While there is still a fair amount of work to complete on landscaping, street lighting, fencing, permanent striping, and cleanup, the major road reconstruction and paving is complete at Garden Corner Curves and the road has reopened.
Thank you to everyone for bearing with the construction noise and for your patience while you had to use alternate routes during the road closure.
Please note: the project is not fully completed, construction will continue along the corridor, which may include flaggers and potential delays.
This will be the last weekly project update showing the construction progress on the website. However, the project team is planning a reopening event to celebrate project completion on November 20th between 9:30am – 12:00pm. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details!
Phase 1 (completed) work included improvements that slow traffic like narrowing the roadway and building the raised crosswalk at 108th Ave and Blake St.
Phase 2 - See Phase 2 Schedule here
Phase 2 (began January 2021) work includes replacing the creek culvert and sewer line, construction of the trail, stormwater planter, and reconstruction of the roadway.

In May 2018, Tualatin voters approved the $20 million bond measure to support high priority transportation projects, distributed city wide. Garden Corner Curves has been identified as a priority project that will improve neighborhood safety.
The Garden Corner Curves Corridor is a narrow, constrained roadway which accommodates people driving, walking and biking. The corridor includes SW 105th Avenue, SW Blake Street, and SW 108th Avenue - a map of the corridor is shown HERE. The goal of this project is to develop solutions that balance cost, safety for all users, community needs, environmental impacts, and right-of-way.
- Narrow roadway with limited public right-of-way available to widen or construct other improvements
- Road is used by people walking and biking, with no separated path, and little to no shoulder
- Road has sharp curves, limited visibility, there are steep banks/ditches beyond the edge of pavement
