The purpose of this project was to increase capacity, improve traffic safety and relieve congestion in this stretch of U.S. 26, which currently has two lanes in each direction. There are now three lanes in each direction of U.S. 26, from Cornelius Pass Road into downtown Portland.

Cost and Funding
What Problem Will This
The stretch of U.S. 26 between Cornelius Pass Road and 185th Avenue has reached its vehicle capacity. The congestion is particularly evident on U.S. 26 westbound between 185th Avenue and Cornelius Pass Road. The population and employment in Washington County continues to grow, increasing the traffic demand on U.S. 26. Without improvements, congestion and related crashes are anticipated to increase in the area.
