Route description

The southern terminus of Oregon Route 141 is at Exit 286 on Interstate 5 in northern Wilsonville. From there, the highway runs north along Boones Ferry Road, through the city of Tualatin and past the community of Durham. In Durham, it then turns west on Durham Road for approximately one mile, then turns north again Hall Boulevard in Tigard. It then heads north on Hall for several miles, crossing OR 99W in Tigard, and eventually ending at an intersection with OR 210 (Scholls Ferry Road) in the community of Progress (though the intersection is technically within the city of Beaverton). An interchange with OR 217 lies nearby.

Just north of the intersection with OR 99W, the highway crosses over, but does not intersect with, OR 217; however access to OR 217 at this point is provided via OR 99W.

This route, along with a further extension north into Beaverton on Hall Boulevard, and a further extension south into Woodburn via Boones Ferry Road, was the original route of OR 217, before the current freeway alignment was constructed in 1972.

As of 2006, route markers are not posted for this highway anywhere along its length. Complicating the definition of the highway, two separate sections of the route are maintained by cities (Tualatin and Tigard), and are technically not part of the official definition of OR 141.
