Oregon Highway 8 (Tualatin Valley Highway), Minter Bridge Road to 331st Avenue
Project Description: ODOT and the City of Hillsboro are partnering on a paving and utility improvement project on Tualatin Valley (TV) Highway (OR 8) between Minter Bridge Road and 331st Avenue. Work on TV Highway involves grinding, reconstructing, paving and restriping; significantly upgrading the City’s water and storm water systems; improving more than 100 ADA ramps (accessible curb ramps); and repairing and paving the Dairy Creek Bridge.
Work is continuing on the TV Highway Paving Project from Minter Bridge Road to 331st Avenue. The contractor has been working days and nights to replace storm sewer lines and reconstruct the highway on Oak Street. The last step in this work is to pave the right lane of Oak Street from Dennis Avenue to 1st Avenue. This will require both the right lane and center lane of Oak Street to be closed this upcoming weekend.
Traffic Impacts: The left lane of Baseline Street between Adams and Dennis Avenues is closed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The left lane of Oak Street between Dennis Avenue and 1st Avenue is also closed 24 hours a day, seven days a week through April 2014. At night, the middle lane of Oak Street in this section may also be closed to create a wider work area. Cross streets in this section may also be impacted during the work. There will be intermittent sidewalk closures on Oak Street. When that occurs, sidewalk detour signs will be in place directing pedestrians to the sidewalk on the other side of the street. Daytime and nighttime lane closures planned on Baseline Street between 7th Avenue and 10th Avenue. Cross streets in this section may also be impacted during the work. There will be daytime single lane closures and nighttime double lanes closures intermittently on Oak Street and Baseline Street between 10th Avenue and Dennis Avenue testing and chlorinating the new water lines.
Construction will continue through 2015, with daytime and nighttime lane closures up to 7 days a week as crews move through the project. On TV Highway and some side streets, road users should plan for congestion, delays and uneven road surfaces. There is increased traffic enforcement in the area. Please drive cautiously and follow construction signage
