Cornelius Pass closure date set
The Cornelius Pass road closure will start at 3 a.m. on Monday, July 22.
The date has been pushed back multiple times in recent weeks. Before closing Cornelius Pass, the contractor, Wildish Standard Paving, had to complete the installation of a temporary traffic light at Cornelius Pass and NW Newberry Road.
In a press release announcing the updated closure date, Multnomah County spokesperson Mike Pullen outlined the detour route for cars and pickup trucks.
"From Highway 30 take NW Newberry Road, NW Skyline Blvd. and NW Old Cornelius Pass Road to Washington County. A temporary traffic signal at NW Newberry Road will allow traffic to safely turn left onto Highway 30. Stop signs will be relocated along the detour route to create a free-flowing route," Pullen wrote.
