Improvements to Wilsonville Road at the I-5 interchange were necessary to meet traffic concurrency requirements in Wilsonville and allow continued development activity. Specifically, this project was necessary for the redevelopment of the former Dammasch State Hospital into a new mixeduse development with over 2,300 residential units, the expansion of a Coca-Cola bottling facility, and the development of a new Fred Meyer retail center.
This project, which was completed in 2012, also included bike and pedestrian safety improvements and artistic enhancements. Wilsonville K-12 students participated in a year-long project to design and produce a tile mural that was installed under I-5 next to a new pedestrian pathway.
