Washington County budgets road improvements for Cedar Mill

The Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP) will have built 64 transportation projects by 2006. Approved by voters in 1986, 1989 and 1995, MSTIP is a joint effort of Washington County’s Department of Land Use & Transportation and local cities. The County dedicates $20 million of property taxes each year to the MSTIP program. Elected officials meet regularly as the Washington County Coordinating Committee to recommend the fairest distribution of federal, state and local transportation funding. Projects approved for our area for completion between 2006 and 2009 are:

NW Saltzman Road from Cornell to Laidlaw–The proposed project will widen the existing two lanes by improving the two travel lanes and constructing a new center-turn lane. Also included as part of this project will be bike lanes, sidewalks, intersection and safety improvements, illumination and landscaping. Estimated project cost is $19,272,245

NW Murray Boulevard from Highway 26 (Sunset Highway) to Cornell–This project would design and acquire right-of-way for future widening of Murray to five lanes, including bike lanes and sidewalks. It would anticipate boulevard design elements and significant intersection improvements at the Murray/Cornell intersection. Estimated cost is $5,300,000
