Saturday Closures: The additional weekday and Saturday work days in December and January are needed for timely completion of this complex project. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Upcoming work: With the rock removal complete, the drilling work to install rock bolts, which hold the mesh screen in place, will continue until approximately Dec. 18th. The mesh screen installation will occur after the drilling is complete along with planting the top of the slopes.
The project will generate noise when there is drilling and rock removal. The noise will occur during the daytime. To report noise problems for construction incidents requiring immediate attention 24 hours/day, call 503-412-2350.
During the ramp closure, travelers heading to the Sunset Highway westbound will be detoured from Jefferson Street to SW 13th Avenue, to the Clay Street entrance. The detour route will be signed.
Traffic Impacts to the local area
During construction, there will be full closures of the ramp weekday and weekend. To complete the work, while minimizing traffic impacts, ramp closures will occur during the daytime to avoid commute hours. Intermittent evening ramp closures may also occur. Motorists should expect some delays. There will be no work on major holidays.
How can I get more information or to be added to the project mailing list?
