Verboort Road Closure Detour Map

Verboort Road will be temporarily closed east of OR 47 from March 7 through mid-July for construction of a roundabout at the OR 47 and Verboort-Purdin Road intersection. Dates are subject to change.

During the closure, all travelers and farm vehicles will be detoured to Martin Road. Detour signs will be installed to identify the designated detour route. 

After Verboort Road reopens, both Verboort and Purdin roads will be restricted to right-in and right-out access only for four weeks. Following these restrictions, Purdin Road will be temporarily closed west of OR 47 for six weeks. Once dates are confirmed, Washington County Department of Land Use & Transportation will mail notifications to neighboring properties. OR 47 will remain open at all times.
