Open house slated for Jan. 9 on Cornelius Pass improvements

Citizens are invited to attend an open house Jan. 9 for the Cornelius Pass Road improvement project.

Hosted by the Washington County Department of Land Use and Transportation and the city of Hillsboro, the public can stop by Liberty High School, 21945 N.W. Wagon Way, Room 165, any time between 5 and 7 p.m. to learn more about the proposed design and to provide comments for the project team. No formal presentation is planned. Staff from Washington County and design consultant David Evans and Associates will be available to answer questions.

This project will widen Cornelius Pass Road between Cornell Road and Highway 26 to three lanes in each direction with a center median and dedicated turn lanes at several intersections, including Highway 26.

The roadway will also include bicycle and pedestrian facilities on both sides of the roadway, intersection upgrades and additional street lighting. Construction is anticipated to begin summer 2015.

The project is funded through a combination of sources including private development, the county’s Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program, state of Oregon Immediate Opportunity Funds and the city of Hillsboro.
