Traffic Advisory: Temporary Closure of NE Jackson School Road for Roundabout Installation

Traffic Advisory: Temporary Closure of NE Jackson School Road for Roundabout Installation In March 2020, the City of Hillsboro began construction on a two-year project to improve safety for people walking, biking, and driving in the Jackson School Road corridor. As part of the project, the north and south lanes of NE Jackson School Road – between NE Grant Street and NE Evergreen Road – are scheduled to be temporarily closed to traffic from May 17, 2021 to July 19, 2021, for the installation of a roundabout at the NE Harewood Street intersection. During the closure: — Local access to homes with entry/exit on NE Jackson School Road from NE Grant Street to NE Evergreen Road will be maintained at all times, with minor delays. — Residents in the area may experience some project-related noise during work time (Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm). — Service providers – such as the postal service and garbage haulers – will be notified to limit service disruptions to affected homes. –There will be construction equipment and trucks temporarily located at, near, and around the culvert replacement site by Hamby Park. –The detour routes for through traffic will be NE Harewood Street, NW Glencoe Road, and NE Grant Street. During the life of the project, there will be three road closures along sections of NE Jackson School Road to complete essential work and safety improvements. The first closure was completed in summer 2020. Currently, NE Jackson School Road is a two-lane roadway with an intermittent center-turn lane, intermittent sidewalks, limited roadway lighting, and no bicycle facilities. On average, approximately 8,000 vehicles travel on NE Jackson School Road each day. This is projected to increase to approximately 10,000 vehicles per day in the next 20 years. Improving the Jackson School Road corridor has been part of the area’s Transportation System Plan for more than four decades. Project improvements will include curbs, sidewalks, raised bike lanes, a continuous center turn lane, and signage and sight distance improvements, as well as underground utilities, storm drainage upgrades, and the addition of street lighting and landscaped planter strips with street trees. The project is on schedule for completion in fall 2022.
