Ribbon-cutting celebrates completion of Broadway Street work

TIMES PHOTO: ERIC APALATEGUI - Mayor Denny Doyle and the Beaverton Beaver joined Broadway Street business owners and other VIPs to celebrate the completion of work on the historic street.Business owners and city officials on Friday celebrated the completion of work that spruced up two blocks of historic Beaverton's Southwest Broadway Street.

"This is the heart and soul of the city for over 100 years," Mayor Denny Doyle said during the brief ceremony.

"The transformation has been pretty dramatic," said Cheryl Twete, director of the Beaverton Development Division.

"It was not always an easy process for us, but we got through it," Donna Samson, co-owner of Art on Broadway, noting the construction that tore up the street and sidewalk over the summer months.

The project widened the sidewalk and added a plaza and street trees to one of the city's original business districts, which is envisioned as a festival street and destination for shops and restaurants in the heart of an area being redeveloped as Beaverton's downtown core.
