The contractor is beginning to work on new portions of the project, which means to expect new work zones and traffic patterns. 

  • Expect to see construction work begin on the west side of Cornelius Pass Road, as well as on Cornell Road east and west of Cornelius Pass Road.
  • The TriMet bus stop on the north side of Cornell Road (just west of Cornelius Pass Road) is temporarily closed for the next few months. 
  • Expect changes to traffic patterns on Cornelius Pass Road (between Cornell Road and US Highway 26) where traffic will be directed to new northbound lanes as updated traffic signals are activated. 
  • Switching to the new traffic signals will require signal shutdowns. This night work will include flaggers to direct traffic. Dates to be determined.
