Century West Engineering: Main Street Green Street
The City of Tigard (City) was facing a problem with the deteriorated condition of SW Main Street, which was causing inconvenience to the community, visitors, and businesses. The project’s objective was to improve the other half of Tigard’s downtown corridor to match the standards set by a previous project. The previous project introduced safer bicycle and pedestrian facilities, updated street lighting and furniture, and attractive low-impact landscaped stormwater planters to one corridor section.
