On the Road

County crews will be chip sealing on Pumpkin Ridge, West Union, and Woollen roads during the week of July 21. Road surface crews will also be spot paving and making other pavement repairs on Scoggins Valley Road and Tongue Lane. Guardrail repairs will occur on Vadis Road. The Bridge crew will be working on the pedestrian bridge on Butner Road between 126th and Huntington. Community Service workers will be maintaining landscaping on 175th Avenue between Kemmer and Constance and on Baseline Road between 197th and 205th avenues.

Work is wrapping up on 92nd Avenue. During construction, travelers should expect long delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes. For more information about this project, visit the project website.

The new traffic signals along Roy Rogers Road at Beef Bend and Scholls-Sherwood have been activated. The Scholls Ferry/Tile Flat signal is scheduled for activation by the end of July or first part of August.

Starting Monday, July 21, expect dual lane closures along Baseline Street (OR 8) between First and Tenth Avenues over the next couple months. The lane closures will occur in two-block increments. This work is related to ODOT's TV Highway (Minter Bridge to 331st) paving project.

ODOT's U.S. 26 Brookwood Interchange project continues with intermittent pile driving at the Brookwood/Helvetia overpass between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. This project is scheduled to be complete by the end of summer 2015.

Expect delays on some city streets as cities start work on their pavement maintenance projects. For example, see City of Beaverton's Traffic Alerts and City of Hillsboro's Traffic Updates.

Road Closures

West Shore Drive will have temporary daytime closures at Scoggins Dam on July 29 and 30. Closures will occur from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. The road will be closed to all modes of travel, including bicyclists and pedestrians. The closures will allow the Bureau of Reclamation to install gates at the dam.

Oleson Road will be closed at the Fanno Creek bridge, located just south of Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway, for eight months starting July 28. The closure is necessary for the contractor to replace the bridge. Motorists will be detoured to Hall Boulevard and Scholls Ferry Road. A temporary bike/ped bridge will be installed to provide access for walkers and bicyclists during the closure.

Get Involved / Stay Informed

Come visit us at Celebrate Hillsboro this Saturday, July 19, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This fun festival will be held along Main Street between First and Fifth avenues in downtown Hillsboro.

The City of Beaverton will hold an open house for the South Cooper Mountain Concept Plan on Thursday, July 24, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Scholls Heights Elementary.
