During that closure, drivers should use Southwest Murray Boulevard or 142nd Avenue instead of Hocken.

The Hocken closure comes as the Farmington Road project hits a milestone: The construction work will shift motorists and pedestrians from the nearly finished south side of the roadway to the north side between Murray and Hocken.

Businesses will remain open during the work and TriMet’s Bus No. 52 continues to serve the area as well. Left turns are restricted in the work zone, where traffic delays will continue.

The joint project between Beaverton and Washington County, which widens the street to five lanes and makes other improvements, still has more than a year to go before its projected completion in late spring 2017.
