Project Description: Work is underway on a project to improve safety on OR 99W from Durham Road to Fischer Road in King City and Tigard.  Safety improvements include:
 
·    Closing the center median opening on OR 99W at Royal Villa Drive. A left-turn lane and a U-turn signal will be installed at Fischer Road. This will assist southbound travelers who are bound for Royal Villa Drive or wish to head north
·     Building a bus stop pullout on OR 99W southbound just south of Fischer Road

The right turn lane from OR 99W northbound to Durham Road will remain open during this time.
 
The driveway closure is required to build a safe separation for vehicles on OR 99W northbound turning right into Tigard Towne Square and those turning right onto Durham Road.
 
Single lane closures may occur on OR 99W as well as on Durham Road and Fischer Road between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. for traffic signal work Monday through Friday. Please note: Kerr Contractors are also working concurrently within the same work zone for another project.
