North Valley Road Online Open House


The intent of this online open house is to inform the community of on-going efforts to enhance and preserve the 4 mile stretch of North Valley Road between NE Ribbon Ridge Road and NE Albertson road.

North Valley Road is a rural connection between Newberg and Forest Grove used by residents, commuters, farmers, freight, wineries, and cyclists. The existing roadway is narrow, curvy, and has no shoulders. The existing asphalt, overlaid within the last decade, has required regular pavement maintenance to address edge settlement and subgrade failures. The pavement failures are worse in areas near the flood plain. Additionally, the roadside ditches are pinched by adjacent hillsides, and the existing culverts rapidly clog with debris, causing the road subgrade to be frequently submerged in water. The corridor has experienced numerous crashes and near misses.

The County is requesting feedback from residents, businesses, and other users to help prioritize improvements to North Valley Road. Please review the project description and safety analysis tabs to find information about the analysis and concept design work that has been completed to date to define the maintenance and safety issues mentioned above. Please click on the "Your Feedback" tab once you have reviewed the information to access the interactive map when you can leave comments tied to geographic locations along the corridor which will be used help the County in this process. Thank you for your time and interest in the North Valley Road Improvements Project.
