TIMES FILE PHOTO - The Fanno Creek Bridge was determined to need repairs by ODOT in 2015 (shown here). Temporary repairs were made but now the city is in the process of replacing the bridge.The Tigard City Council has agreed to accept Oregon Department of Transportation funds to complete a bridge replacement on North Dakota Street.

During its Feb. 19 meeting, the council approved an intergovernmental agreement to accept $3.5 million in funds from the state with the city pitching in almost $2 million for the project. The new Fanno Creek Bridge will include pedestrian and bike lanes.

In 2015, the city received a notice that the bridge was failing but they were allowed to make temporary repairs that expire in five years, according to city officials.

The original wooden bridge was constructed in 1962, it takes drivers across Southwest Fanno Creek between 105th Avenue and Tiedeman Avenue. It was closed for a period of time beginning in June 2015 to make the temporary repairs.

Total cost of the project is estimated at $4.8 million with construction to begin in 2020.
