November 2018 update: All major work on the project is complete. There are three lanes in each direction fully open as far west as Cornelius Pass Road. The contractor is focusing on final items and cleanup work and will be done fall 2018.
Expect daytime and nighttime work on U.S. 26 and Cornelius Pass Road through fall 2018. Visit the weekly construction update

** Road users should expect nighttime lane closures on U.S. 26 and Cornelius Pass Road, ramp closures, reduced shoulders and traffic shifts. No daytime lane closures on U.S. 26 are expected.
** The Rock Creek Trail under U.S. 26 will be closed for two separate weekends and six separate nights - with a detour in place - as the new bridge is constructed (both weekend closures happened in spring/summer 2017). There will also be intermittent flagging on the trail.
** There will be shoulder closures on U.S. 26 throughout most of the project. During the shoulder closures, those on bicycles must exit and take the signed detour on local roads.
** Work not requiring lane closures will take place during the day.
** Road users should expect increased congestion, noise and delays during construction.
** There will be periodic nighttime work on this project. Residences and businesses adjacent to the project area may experience daytime and nighttime construction noise. ODOT has obtained a nighttime noise variance from the City of Hillsboro. A noise hotline is available 24 hours a day for reporting noise concerns. That number is 971-673-5239.
