The Downtown Loop Project reimagines SW Hall Blvd. and SW Watson Ave. to establish a strong connection between Old Town and Beaverton Central. Through transportation and urban design interventions, the Downtown Loop prioritizes walking, biking, and transit, and fosters a safer, more comfortable, and vibrant public realm that is welcoming to all. Building upon a decade of planning and engagement efforts by the City, the Loop team is coordinating with the many parallel public projects and processes in Downtown Beaverton, and aiming to elevate the voices of those often left out of the planning process (e.g. people with disabilities, BIPOC). The intention of the Loop is to honor the history, cultures, and established businesses and residents of downtown Beaverton as well as to support the evolution of downtown Beaverton, such as the soon-to-open Patricia Reser Center for the Arts, anticipated mixed use private developments, and new food cart pods and restaurants.
