About

Hillsboro residents and visitors will enjoy improved active transportation options and neighborhood livability upon the completion of the City's Jackson School Road improvement project.

Improvements to NE Jackson School Road will start at NE Grant Street and end at NE Evergreen Road.

Jackson School Road provides access to:

  • Adjacent residential development,
  • Jackson, Lincoln, and Mooberry Elementary schools,
  • Hamby Park,
  • TriMet bus service (Route 47 at Evergreen),
  • Downtown Hillsboro, and
  • Highway 26.

Jackson School Road is currently a two-lane roadway with intermittent center turn lanes and incomplete sidewalks. It lacks safe bicycle lanes and has limited roadway lighting.

Many sections of Jackson School Road lack sidewalks, bicycle lanes, and center turn lanes.

Each day, about 8,000 vehicles travel on NE Jackson School Road. Over the next 20 years, traffic is projected to increase to about 10,000 vehicles per day.
