The Fanno Creek Trail Connections Project is beginning near the Tigard Public Library this month! Fanno Creek Trail will be expanded with three new segments thanks to a partnership between the Oregon Department of Transportation and the City of Tigard. As part of this project, a combination of boardwalks and a bridge will be added just east of the Library’s book drop loop. Library facilities will be affected in the following ways:
- The drive-up book return has been temporarily converted to a walk-up and moved to the covered area across from its previous location.
- The book drop’s circle drive is temporarily closed to allow for construction equipment for the project. This will cause temporary changes to the parking lot flow.
- Fanno Creek Trail has been temporarily rerouted nearer to the Library and across the parking lot to avoid the construction area.
- There will be construction noise and visible construction activity.
You’re encouraged to use the walk-up book drop during construction. Curbside service is available during the Library’s open hours and can also be used for returning materials if needed. Park in the spot labeled “Curbside Holds Pickup” and call the number on the sign.
We look forward to having another pedestrian-friendly way to walk or roll to Tigard Public Library, and we apologize for any inconvenience that results from this construction. Learn more about the Fanno Creek Trail Connections Project at tigard-or.gov/library.
The Library will be closed Mondays, January 15 and February 19. Online resources are available 24/7 at wccls.org.
