In May 2018, Tualatin voters approved a $20 million G.O. bond measure to support high priority transportation projects, distributed citywide. The bond measure enables the City to move quickly to finance and build the priority projects within just a few years.

Project priorities are guided by community input demonstrating broad support for Tualatin’s three most pressing transportation issues:

Six Things You Should Know

  • 1 Traffic congestion and neighborhood traffic safety repeatedly score as the #1 concern among Tualatin residents on community surveys.
  • 2 To address traffic congestion and safety problems, Tualatin voters approved a $20 million General Obligation bond measure on the May 2018 ballot.
  • 3 Congestion relief projects will add new signals and/ or travel lanes on Tualatin-Sherwood Road, Sagert St at Martinazzi Ave, Tualatin Road, and Myslony St.
  • 4 Neighborhood traffic safety improvements include crosswalks with pedestrian-activated signals, sidewalks, bikeways, and driver feedback signs that display speed, in areas identified by residents as priorities.
  • 5 5. These traffic congestion and safety improvement projects are already underway and will be completed within five years of bond approval – by 2023.
  • 6 6. The bond measure approved by voters is estimated to increase the property tax by 49 cents per $1,000 of taxable value, or $146 per year for a typical Tualatin home assessed at $300,000. Tualatin has one of the lowest tax rates among Washington County cities, and a low level of debt. The City’s excellent Aa1 bond rating reduces interest paid on City-issued bonds.
