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:
