Washington County's Department of Land Use and Transportation invites the public to attend an Open House on September 21 for the Scholls Ferry Road at Fanno Creek bridge replacement project.

The public is invited to drop in any time between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to learn more about the proposed improvements.
