Evergreen Parkway Detour

Evergreen Parkway, east of Cornelius Pass Road, will be closed to motorists May 16 -30 as part of the Cornelius Pass Road widening project.

Motorists will be detoured around the closure via Cornelius Pass Road, Cornell Road and Aloclek Drive; delays are expected. Bicyclists and pedestrians will have access through the closure via the sidewalk. TriMet bus stops on Evergreen Parkway at 215th Avenue will be closed; riders should utilize bus stops on Evergreen Parkway at Aloclek Drive for the duration of the closure. 

The Cornelius Pass Road project will widen the roadway to three lanes in each direction between Cornell Road and U.S. 26. There will be a center median and dedicated turn lanes at several intersections, including U.S. 26. Other improvements include sidewalks on both sides of the road, a buffered bike lane on the west side, a separated two-way bike path on the east side and new street lighting.
