Moving Forward TV Highway plans to improve safety for all travelers between Cornelius Pass Road and 160th Avenue. The project’s priorities are:
- Improving bus speeds and reliability along the TV Highway corridor
- Creating safer access to transit (sidewalks, bike lanes and improved crossing treatments)
- Connecting underserved communities to opportunities
- Strengthening economic vitality and neighborhood livability
The project is funded through the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) Transportation and Growth Management program. Our partners include TriMet, the cities of Hillsboro and Beaverton, Metro, Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District and Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue.
TriMet operates Line 57, a frequent service bus route between Forest Grove and the Beaverton Transit Center along TV Highway. Line 57 has the highest ridership of any Washington County bus line, with a daily average of more than 7,500 users. It also has the longest space of service, averaging about 22 hours of daily service.
Line 57 ranks 10th in the regional TriMet system for providing access to jobs, housing and social services to minority, low-income, youth and those with limited-English proficiency. Of the 65,000 people living within a quarter mile of Line 57, 45% are below the poverty line and are considered transit dependent.
Public outreach efforts show active transportation infrastructure investments is critical to providing more affordable and equitable travel options to move the community toward a more livable, healthy and sustainable future.
