County hosts open house at library for local road projects

A combined open house for the upcoming Brookwood Parkway and Groveland Drive improvement projects by Washington County’s Department of Land Use & Transportation will be held Wednesday, Feb. 26, at the Hillsboro Main Library, 2850 N.E. Brookwood Parkway.

The public is invited to drop by anytime between 5 and 7 p.m. to learn about the proposed design for both projects and to provide comments for the project teams. No formal presentations are planned.

The Brookwood Parkway project will widen Brookwood between Meek Road and Shute Road to three lanes in each direction with continuous bike and pedestrian facilities. Additional improvements include utility upgrades, street lighting and traffic signal modifications. Funding for this project is provided through the state of Oregon’s Jobs and Transportation Act (JTA) and city of Hillsboro Transportation Development Tax (TDT) funds.

The Groveland Drive project will construct a new two-lane roadway that will realign Groveland Drive starting east of Groveland Road and reconnecting to Helvetia Road at the current intersection with Schaaf Road. Funding for this project is provided through the JTA program and the county’s Road Capital Program.
