Learn about Thompson Road construction at the June 4 open house

Learn about construction starting in June 2024 at the June 4 open house.
Media release

Meet the contractor and staff for the Thompson Road Realignment Project at an open house from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, June 4, at Cedar Mill Library, 1080 NW Saltzman Rd.

Thompson Road will be connected to Kenny Terrace west of Saltzman Road. The new connection will provide an alternative to the existing sharp curve. The new Thompson Road connection will be a three-lane road (one travel lane in each direction and a center turn lane) with bike lanes, multiuse (cyclist and pedestrian) paths and landscaping.

Construction begins in June and is expected to continue through February. Two closures of Thompson Road are planned:

  • Closure 1 – West of the curve, for about 45 days between June 15-Sept. 1.
  • Closure 2 – West of Saltzman Road, for about 30 days in the fall.

Drivers will be detoured to Saltzman Road, Cornell Road and Bethany Boulevard. Cyclists, pedestrians and local traffic may use local routes. See map.

The $7.48 million project is funded through the MSTIP Bonding Cost-sharing Program for improvements in the North Bethany/Bonny Slope West area.

No presentation is planned; drop in any time during the open house. Exhibits will be posted to the project webpage following the event.
