COURTESY PHOTO: WASHINGTON COUNTY - The intersection of Northeast Cornelius Pass Road and Northwest Evergreen Parkway was one of several major intersections to receive improvements as part of a construction project that wrapped up last March.The Oregon chapter of the American Public Works Association recognized a project to improve Northeast Cornelius Pass Road as the Transportation Project of the Year.

The APWA presented the award, given to projects between $5 million and $25 million, during the Washington County Board of Commissioners meeting on Nov. 7.

The $18.3 million project widened Cornelius Pass Road to a total of six lanes between Northwest Cornell Road and U.S. 26. The project also added sidewalks on both sides of the road, a buffered bike lane, a bike path on the east side of the road and new street lighting.

The project drew funding from Washington County's Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program, Hillsboro transportation fees, a pair of ODOT grants and funds from Intel, which promised to add at least 1,000 new high-tech jobs at the Ronler Acres campus within two years of the project's completion date.

Construction began in July 2015, and wrapped up on March 31, 2017.
