There is a project on the books for US-26 that will start next year to extend the 6 lane out to 185th although I agree that it needs to be extended out at least another couple of exits.

There is a project currently being worked on from 185th to North Plains for repaving and other repair work on US-26 (an ARRA funded project).

With the completion of the widening of the last 3-lane section of Cornell Rd west of US-26 to 5 lanes, I've noticed that some of the people headed for Hillsboro that were getting off at 185th are now getting off at Cornell.
