Brookwood opens to freight traffic

Brookwood Avenue between Main Street/Baseline Road and the Tualatin Valley Highway has been opened to freight traffic.

Although this section of Brookwood has long been designated for freight traffic in Washington County's Transportation System Plan, it was posted "No Through Trucks" until recently. Now with the completion of recent roadway improvements, the restriction has been lifted.

Improvements include reconstruction of the pavement structure to current freight standards, the widening of the roadway to one lane in each direction with a center turn lane, improvements to the “S” curves, and the addition of bicycle lanes, sidewalks, street lighting and landscaping.

Hillsboro partnered with the county on the project.
