August 28, 2015--Sheriff's Deputies responded to a report of a motorcycle rider that was missing. The rider was later located deceased over an embankment.

On August 27, 2015, at 10:22 a.m., Washington County Sheriff's Deputies were called to the area of NW Highway 26 in the community of Timber. It was reported a group of 10 motorcycles had been riding in the area the previous night. The group reportedly had a final stop in Vernonia then departed in different directions. A family member reported that Vadim Danilin, 24, from Portland did not return home and no one has seen or heard from him since they left Vernonia.

Sheriff's Deputies began an extensive search of the roadways in the remote area. With a large area to search, Sheriff's Deputies searched for any signs of a crash or where Mr. Danilin's 2005 Suzuki GSXR600 motorcycle may have left the roadway.

On August 27, 2015, at 7:43 p.m., Sheriff's Deputies were notified by a searcher that they found signs where a motorcycle left the roadway at the 26000 block of NW Timber Road. Vadim Danilin was located deceased near his motorcycle, about 40 yards over an embankment after failing to negotiate a curve and striking a tree.

It appears that excessive speed may have been a contributing factor in this crash.
The Washington County Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team assisted with this investigation.

BEAVERTON, Ore. - The City of Beaverton has applied for a $10 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant for the Canyon Road (OR 8) Safety and Complete Corridor Project. On Tuesday, Sept. 1 Mayor Doyle will lead a tour of Canyon Road for Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici.


"The Canyon Road project is key to revitalizing downtown Beaverton," said Mayor Denny Doyle. "Our community vision calls for safer streets for pedestrians and bicyclists, easier ways to get to and from transit centers, and development in our downtown--this project touches on all of those aspects."


The Canyon Road project will:


* Increase safety for all mode types and users through sidewalk repair and enhancements, safer pedestrian crossings, correction of auto and freight turning conflicts, and traffic calming


* Provide better connectivity across Canyon Road for bicyclists and pedestrians seeking access to transit or a safe route to work


* Facilitate economic development and reinvestment with increased transportation choices and greater access to transit and job centers


The project started from the community's vision of downtown Beaverton as a connected, vibrant place, with particular emphasis on improving the safety, congestion and environment on Canyon and Farmington Roads. Oregon Highway 8 is a critical part of the local regional and service sector jobs in Beaverton, Hillsboro and Portland. The highway is adjacent to light rail.


The estimated total cost of the project is $20.8 million. The project is supported by the city's and ODOT's non-federal match totaling $5.8 million and an additional $1.5 million from the Washington County MSTIP Opportunity Fund. Pre-engineering and design of the project was funded through a $1 million HUD Sustainable Communities Challenge Grant. The project is also supported by $3.5 million in Regional Flex Fund dollars, awarded by Metro in 2013.


"Now is the time to make these much needed improvements," said Mayor Doyle. "We've gathered nearly 70 letters of support from local businesses. We're ready for TIGER and we're ready to move forward with this important project."


For more information, please contact Todd Juhasz, transportation planner at tjuhasz@BeavertonOregon.gov or at 503-526-2424.

Portland Fire & Rescue initially responded to an automatic alarm at approximately 5:20 am at 6435 NE Colwood Way, Full Bore Innovations. Witnesses in the area saw smoke coming from the building and called 911. When fire crews arrived, they saw smoke and flames coming from the 2nd floor windows. Due to difficult access into the building and the manufacturing equipment inside, it was difficult to get water on the fire. The incident commander then called for a 2nd alarm which brought more resources. Crews were able to get the fire under control around 6:00 am.

Fire crews did find a hole burned in the floor at the top of the stairs to the second floor. The crews marked the hole and kept other firefighters from falling through.

No one was in the building at the time of the fire and no one was injured.

The fire cause is under investigation. Fire crews are still on scene mopping up hot spots and working with the fire investigator.
