Dec. 7 - Dec. 14, 2013
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.
The contractor is moving into the next phase of work on Oak Street which includes storm sewer pipe replacement, sidewalk and ADA ramp work, and reconstructing and repaving the right lane. Work will be moving west to east on Oak Street in 3-block sections starting at Dennis Street and ending at 10th Avenue.
Traffic Impacts: Expect the following work on Oak Street over the next couple of months:
The right lane of Oak Street from Dennis Avenue to 1st Avenue is currently closed 24 hours a day for the next 6-7 weeks (until approximately the end of January 2014). This includes times when the contractor is not actively working on the project.
At night, the middle lane of Oak Street may also be closed to create a wider work area. The middle lane will reopen every morning. Cross streets in this section may also be impacted during the work.
Work will take place at night and during the day.
After the section of Oak Street is complete between Dennis Avenue and 1st Avenue approx. late January, the contractor will begin work on Oak Street between 1st Avenue and 4th Avenue. This will also include a right lane closure in this section 24 hours a day with nighttime and daytime work
Other project work:
Daytime flagging will start Monday, Dec. 9 on SE 2nd Avenue between the railroad tracks and just south Maple Street for work installing a new storm sewer pipe. This work will continue for 2-3 weeks.
Work is wrapping up on Baseline and Oak streets between 10th Avenue and Dennis Avenue replacing water lines. There will be daytime single lane closures and nighttime double lanes closures intermittently through this section. The water line work should be complete in December 2013.
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.
