NW Cornelius Pass Road Jurisdictional Transfer

Design Phase

Region 1: Portland metro and Hood River County (Multnomah, Washington)

​​NW Cornelius Pass Road will be transferred from Multnomah County and Washington County to ODOT.​​​​



​​We expect the jurisdictional transfer to be complete in March 2021.



​​The Oregon Department of Transportation is preparing to assume ownership of NW Cornelius Pass Road between U.S. 30 and U.S. 26 through a process called a jurisdictional transfer. Multnomah County and Washington County currently manage this road. This transfer is part of Keep Oregon Moving (HB 2017), the large transportation package passed through the State Legislature in 2017.

After the jurisdictional transfer, there will be changes to how projects are planned, designed, funded and delivered, how road maintenance is prioritized, and in the official name of the road. NW Cornelius Pass Road will officially be Oregon 127 and will have a new highway name in addition to being known as Cornelius Pass Road.

Read the project fact sheet​ for more information about the jurisdictional transfer and what it means for Cornelius Pass Road.
