Open House (posted 9/22/17)
NE 69th Avenue bridge project open house Oct. 18
An open house for the NE 69th Avenue (formerly 227th Avenue) bridge replacement project will be 5-7 p.m. Oct. 18 at Orenco Elementary School, 7050 NW Birch St.
The open house, sponsored by Washington County Department of Land Use & Transportation (LUT), provides the public with the opportunity to learn about design options under consideration for replacement of the bridge on 69th Avenue between Quatama and Fir streets. Representatives from LUT and the city of Hillsboro will be available to answer questions. No formal presentation is planned; stop in any time during the open house hours.
The 69th Avenue bridge was weight-limited in Sept. 2016, with traffic reduced to one lane. The $3.5 million project is funded through the Washington County Road Fund and the city of Hillsboro.
For more information, visit the project website, or contact Engineering and Construction Services at 503-846-7822 or email@example.com. If you need a sign language interpreter, assistive listening device, or language interpreter, please call 503-846-7800 (or 7-1-1 for Telecommunications Relay Service) at least 48 hours prior to this event.
