Notice of Road Closures
- Why: Transport of an oversized load, a Boeing 727-200 aircraft fuselage with wing stubs.
- When: Scheduled for 6 February 1999 (and possibly 7 February 1999), starting at about midnight.
- Times: Only portions of the route will be closed at a time, ahead of and behind the load, with sections closing ahead of the load as it advances, and opening behind after it passes. This transport project is scheduled to begin at Cornell Road and 34th Avenue (on the south side of the Hillsboro Airport) at about midnight. Times when specific road sections will be closed are not certain since they depend upon uncontrollable factors such as weather. The transport project may extend throughout the early morning hours, and possibly into the afternoon. If delays are encountered, the project could extend to a second day, Sunday, 7 February 1999, starting at about midnight.

wide road, similar to many sections of Highway 219. Traffic will be unable
to pass in either direction, so detour routes will be necessary.
