Hill Road between NW 2nd Street and Baker Creek Road

Crews will continue forming and pouring miscellaneous curbs and sidewalks between Baker Creek Road and Fox Ridge Road.

Expect short term lane restrictions with traffic control devices and flaggers in place.


Crews will continue installing conduit between 2nd Street and Fox Ridge Road for the eventual under-grounding of the overhead utilities. Please use caution in the area and follow traffic control measures and detour routes that are in place.


Crews will begin construction of the retaining wall at Cemetery Road. This work will take place within the closure area.


The section of road between Horizon Drive and Fox Ridge Road will remain closed to through traffic while crews complete this phase of the work. Local and emergency access, as well as access to Hillside Manor and the Church on the Hill will be maintained at all times.




Project Overview From the City of McMinnville:  The NW Hill Road Improvements Project is the largest of the five Capital Improvement Projects identified within the Transportation Bond approved by voters in 2014. This project will construct widening and other improvements between NW 2nd Street and NW Baker Creek Road including: wider travel lanes, bike lanes, sidewalks, turn lanes, landscaping, street lighting, drainage improvements, and improved roadway geometry. The "S-curves" at Fox Ridge Road will be softened, and roundabouts will be constructed at Hill Road's intersections with Baker Creek Road and Wallace Road. The project is expected to be substantially complete by November 31, 2018.
