Spiesschaert Road over Council Creek
The Martin Cornelius-Schefflin (MCS) Corridor project is located in the western portion of Washington County. It is north of Forest Grove and Cornelius, east of Verboort, and south of Highway 26. The immediate area is primarily farmland, and the road network serves the needs of both farmers and commuters from Forest Grove, Cornelius, Verboort and the surrounding areas between these communities and Highway 26. MCS was split into 3 phases. The first phase, started in 1995 and was completed in 1996, it involved improvements to Martin Road. The second phase started in 1998 and was completed in 2002 and included the Cornelius-Schefflin Road Corridor study which resulted in improvements of a specific portion of the Corridor based on the priorities established during the study. For the purposes of this study the project corridor was divided into six segments. This segmentation was based on traffic operations, geographic features, and on providing a logical framework for future project development.
