Hillsboro gets street grant

Ongoing street work in Hillsboro got a financial boost Tuesday when the Department of Transportation awarded a cost share grant for improvements to Adams St.

Under the city’s capital improvement plan, major work on Adams St. from 1st to B St. is high priority but is not slated until 2028 because of expected high cost. Street work yet to be done includes paving Lincoln St. from D St. to its south end and Wilson St. from D St. to its south end, both planned for 2024.

Next on the schedule is Birch St. from Grand Ave. to D St., Cedar St. from 2nd St. to B St., and B St. from Ash to Cedar St. Those projects are slated for 2026.

The Department of Transportation did not specify how much money Hillsboro was awarded or how large a portion of the cost would be paid by the state.
