Celebrate completion of three Washington County transportation projects at two ribbon-cutting events this month.
Washington County Board of Commissioners, Department of Land Use & Transportation and agencies and jurisdictions are celebrating completion of Cornell Road project and the Cornelius Pass Road and Reedville Trail projects. Washington County leadership and staff will provide brief remarks, followed by ribbon cuttings. Attendees are encouraged to walk, roll or bike along the projects following each event.
10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, at Cedar Mill Park (See map)
Cornell Road was widened to three lanes (one lane in each direction with a center turn lane) between 102nd and 113th avenues. Other improvements:
• Bike lanes
• Street lighting
• Storm drain improvements
• Traffic signal at the 107th Avenue intersection
Construction began in February 2022 and was completed in July. The project was funded by the County’s Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP 3e).
Cornelius Pass Road and Reedville Trail
10:30 a.m. Monday, Oct. 16, along the Reedville Trail, south of Rock Road (See map)
This event celebrates two neighboring projects.
Cornelius Pass Road was widened to five lanes, two travel lanes in each direction with a center turn lane, between Tualatin Valley Highway and Frances Street. Other improvements:
• Bike lanes
• Sidewalks, including a section on Johnson Street connecting to the Reedville Trail
• Dedicated right-turn lane from westbound TV Highway onto northbound Cornelius Pass Road.
The Willamette Water Supply Program partnered with the County on this project. WWSP installed a drinking water supply line during road construction, which helped reduce costs and the impact to the community.
Construction began in March 2022. Completion is expected in December. The project was paid for by the Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP), the city of Hillsboro and utility reimbursements.
The Reedville Trail Project expanded and repaired the multiuse trail between Johnson Street and Baseline Road. The trail follows the path of the Bonneville Power Administration’s Pearl-Keeler electric transmission line, providing an off-street path. Improvements and repairs:
• Paving the multiuse path
• Improvements to neighborhood spur connections
• Upgrades to crossings at Jay Street, Rock Road and Augusta Street
• A bridge at Reedville Creek
• Lighting, waste bins and dog-waste facilities
Construction started in June and is expected to be finished in November. The project was paid for through an Oregon Department of Transportation grant and the Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program Opportunity Fund.
