Intel growth helps county roads

Intel is paying millions of dollars in Hillsboro to expand roads.

In a few years, many Hillsboro residents and commuters will get to their homes and jobs a little bit quicker. Northwest Cornelius Pass Road from the Sunset Highway to Ronler Drive will be widened from four to six lanes. The intersection at Northwest Evergreen Parkway will be improved for bike lanes. And the ramps to and from U.S. 26 will be improved, including the addition of a second southbound off-ramp.

The improvements will help many Intel workers get to their jobs at the company’s Ronler Acres campus. But it also will help others who use the road. They will include hundreds of new Salesforce.com employees who will be moving into the former Synopsys Inc. software company offices to the south, and the 130 additional employees that Oracle Corp. has promised to hire at its nearby high-tech manufacturing plant.
