ODOT sets construction open house


Highway 8 project includes route between Cornelius and Hillsboro

Construction begins this month on a $14 million project that includes reconstructing and repaving sections of Highway 8 (Tualatin Valley Highway). The paving will stretch approximately 3.4 miles, from Minter Bridge Road in Hillsboro to Southwest 131st Avenue just outside Cornelius.

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is partnering with the City of Hillsboro on the road improvement project.

On Wednesday, April 3, ODOT and Hillsboro officials will sponsor an open house geared to answer questions community members may have about the project. The open house will be at the Hillsboro Civic Center at 150 E. Main St., Room 113. It will be open to the public from 5 to 7 p.m.
