Crews to repave portion of Minter Bridge Road starting Aug. 20
Frequenters of Minter Bridge Road may need to find a new way around town later this month, as road crews close the road for two days of road work starting Aug. 20.
The busy road — between Tualatin Valley Highway and Southeast River Road — will temporarily close Monday, Aug. 20 and Thursday, Aug. 23, while crews repave the area.
According to Lindsay Wochnick, a spokeswoman with the city of Hillsboro, traffic in the area will be detoured around the area to River Road or Southeast 24th Avenue.
"Each year, city employees visually inspect and evaluate the condition of all arterial and collector roadways, such as Minter Bridge Road," Wochnick said.
Local access to homes and businesses in the area will be maintained, Wochnick said, to limit inconvenience to the neighborhood. Residents may experience loud noises between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
