Temporary Bus Routes Due to Water Main Break

  • Due to major damage caused by last week's water main break at Greenfield Drive, Tigard-Tualatin School District has altered identified bus routes indefinitely as the City repairs the roadway. Altered bus routes are listed below for Mary Woodward, Fowler and Tigard High. 

    "SW Greenfield Drive is closed from SW Maplecrest Court to SW Gaarde Street, and 132nd Avenue from Rockingham Drive to SW Greenfield Drive. It is estimated that roughly 500’ of roadway sustained significant damage during a recent water main break. The erosive forces of water from the water main break caused erosion of a substantial amount of gravel and soil from underneath the pavement, leaving large voids and the potential for sink holes.

    Detour Route: The signed detour route for this road closure will be Gaarde Street, to 129th Avenue, to Morningstar Drive, to Greenfield Drive.

     The city is currently working with consultants to determine the structural integrity of the roadway, and the extent of subterranean damage. Once the damage is understood, the city will put together a plan to reopen the road. However, needed repairs could take six months or more.
