On September 5, 2013 Washington County selected the recommended option for improvements to Tualatin Sherwood Road finding that it provides several benefits including:
- It achieves traffic operation and safety benefits without roadway widening. Other alternatives studied require significant roadway widening and right-of-way acquisition (building impacts) to achieve similar traffic operation improvements.
- It performs similar to the other alternatives with a narrower roadway configuration, resulting in less cost, less physical impact, and more safety benefits.
- It improves westbound travel time by over 15 minutes.
