Boeckman Road Near Villebois to Be Closed for Three Months Starting April 24

Construction of the Kinsman Road extension project that connects SW Boeckman Road and Barber Street requires a three-month-long closure of Boeckman Road, April 24 through early August. The project builds a concrete roundabout at the new intersection of Boeckman and Kinsman.


During this time, Boeckman Road between Villebois Drive and the railroad tracks west of SW 95th Avenue is to be closed to through traffic, with access to local businesses maintained. A detour route along Boberg Road, Barber Street, Costa Circle and Villebois Drive is planned.


The project extends Kinsman Road one mile from Barber Street near the Barber Street Bridge and the SMART/WES Commuter Rail Transit Center to connect with Boeckman Road to the north.


The project is a key component of City’s Transportation Systems Plan (TSP) that is building a grid network of streets for an interconnected system of transportation choices in Wilsonville to provide improve mobility and create new routing options. The new roadway provides an additional north-south roadway connection and is designed to accommodate movement of large trucks through one of Wilsonville’s industrial districts. The new section of Kinsman Road helps to alleviate traffic congestion on Boones Ferry and Boberg roads, provides more direct access to the SMART/WES transit and links the western residential neighborhoods with the City’s industrial employment areas.


Incorporated into the project are bike lanes, sidewalks, a 10-foot-wide multi-use pathway and overlook along the Coffee Lake Creek wetlands. The project also includes 2.6 acres of habitat enhancement and wetlands restoration. Stormwater culverts and wildlife crossings are being installed at regular intervals to preserve habitat and wetlands that exist on both sides of the roadway.


As part of the project, a 30-inch sanitary sewer pipe is being upsized and relocated under the new roadway to serve future growth in the Coffee Creek area of North Wilsonville.


In coordination with the Willamette Water Supply Program (WWSP), a 66-inch water line is being installed under the road as well. The WWSP is a partnership between Tualatin Valley Water District (TVWD) and the City of Hillsboro to develop the mid-Willamette River as an additional water supply for customers primarily in Hillsboro and Washington County.


The $11.3 million construction project is funded with $3.9 million by TVWD, $3.3 million in City systems development charges paid by new development, $2.2 million in Oregon Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) funds, $1.4 million in waste-water utility funds and a $0.5 million Metro Transportation Improvement Program grant.
