Construction has already started on lengthening Murray Boulevard by a mile. Progress Ridge, a development south of Scholls Ferry Road and east of the new extention, has 1,100 people who will be given a much needed outlet. This will also benefit those who live in Beaverton and Tigard, Murray will now stretch all the way to Walnut Street where it crosses Barrows Road and now Scholls Ferry and Barrows will be connected. The project is expected to eventually have 4,000 to 6,000 cars a day.
The $3.25 million dollar street will come from the Oregon Department of Transportation, Washington County but mostly transportation funds. Also the project developer, Polygon Northwest, will be creating a local improvement district that should provide about $400,000 toward the increased cost of the bridge.
