To increase safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers, the City of Hillsboro is making improvements to the Jackson School Road corridor. The 1.54 miles of NE Jackson School Road between NE Grant Street and NE Evergreen Road is a collector street that links downtown Hillsboro to Highway 26. It provides access to public transportation, residential neighborhoods, and Jackson, Lincoln, and Mooberry elementary schools, along with a city park.
The two-lane roadway, which includes an intermittent center turn lane and sidewalks, limited roadway lighting, and no bicycle facilities, currently serves more than 8,000 vehicles daily, but is projected to serve 10,000 a day in the near future.
The Jackson School Road improvement project has been a part of the area’s transportation system plan for more than 40 years, but project management was transferred from Washington County to Hillsboro in 2015. The project is now part of the city's Bicycle and Pedestrian Capital Improvement Program.
The project is primarily financed through ten special-use funds. Each of those funding sources are earmarked for specific project elements and can only be used for those purposes. For example, Transportation funds must be used for Transportation projects. Those funds cannot be used for Police, Fire, or school projects.
