(Previous Update from April 2017)
ODOT Project on US 30 is essentially complete From Bridge Avenue to Cornelius Pass Road​
This project is essentially done. The only remaining work to be done is to install permanent striping to replace the temporary striping in various locations in the spring of 2017. This work requires many dry days in a row and dry pavement in order for the striping to stick.  

 Project Overview

This project will repave seven miles of US 30 / St. Helens Road, starting at the south end of the St. Johns Bridge and continuing to NW McNamee Road just before Cornelius Pass Road.
Why is ODOT building this project?
The pavement in this area has deteriorated and is in poor condition.
 Project Benefits
  • New pavement for a smoother ride, increased safety and longer life for the highway and reduced future costs to taxpayers.
  • The shoulders of the road have been paved between the St. Johns Bridge and through the north end of Linnton Road (mile points 7.4 and 9.65)  providing a smoother surface for people walking and biking. The shoulders of St. Helens Road north of Linnton are in good condition and don’t need to be repaved.
  • Accessible sidewalk ramps will be replaced and new ones added.
  • The shoulder have been re-striped in many areas to make them more consistent for cyclists.
  • In Linnton, the stamped crosswalks will be maintained and refreshed. The stamped concrete median will remain in place.

The sidewalk on the west side of US 30 north of NW 108th ends at a cement wall between NW 109th and NW 112th. It is not accessible to people using a wheelchair or people with a visual disability. ODOT was required to post “sidewalk closed” signs to mark this segment. Also, to ensure that people don’t cross US 30 into this section, “crosswalk closed” signs were installed on both sides of US 30 at NW 108th, 109th 110th and NW 1st. The intent is to encourage that all pedestrian crossings occur at signalized intersections at NW 107th and 105th.

What is the project schedule?
The construction started July 2016 and was essentially complete in November 15, 2016. The contractor will finish installing the permanent striping in spring 2017.
ADA Ramp Work
Over 30 sidewalk corner (ADA) ramps were replaced. 
Sidewalk Repair
The sidewalk was repaired in three locations in Linnton in front of the following businesses:  The Decoy Restaurant, Mission Craft Furniture and Linnton Seed and Feed.
