ODOT has nearly completed the design work. The project will construct three lanes from SE 23rd Street to SW 35th Street, and will include curb, sidewalk, ADA ramps, drainage, and landscaping. The project will also include realignment of the west and east legs of 32nd Street and a new traffic signal and pedestrian crossings.
Construction activity will begin in early 2014 with the relocation of utilities within the project area. This work is not overseen by ODOT, but the public can direct questions to the individual utilities or agencies. Click here to view a complete list of utility contact information.
In spring of 2014, ODOT’s contract will be awarded, and construction of the two year project will begin soon after.
Some of the larger design elements include: replacement of two large culverts on US101 and 32nd Street, and a number of retaining walls. The retaining walls will be used to reduce impacts to Baldy Creek and wetlands, as well as provide room for expansion of the highway.
