FFO I-5 @ OR214 Interchange (Woodburn) Development
OR219/OR214: (Hillsboro – Silverton Highway, mile points 36.24 to 37.87) & (I-5, mile posts 271.53 to 276.01)
 
This is an interchange modernization project that includes widening the existing bridge over I-5, new interchange ramps, reconstruction and widening of OR219 / OR214 from Willow Ave. to Broughton Way, re-alignment of Arney Road, construction of a new transit facility at Evergreen Road, construction of sound walls, new signing, new illumination and more.
 
The new traffic pattern requires OR219 / OR214 traffic wishing to access I-5 northbound and southbound to be in the right lane. This change has improved the overall flow of traffic through the interchange.
 
Also, two new freeway entrance ramps now reduce cross-traffic turns necessary for travelers through this area.
 
The final striping, signing and signal changes, landscaping and other miscellaneous enhancement features are currently underway, so motorists should expect intermittent night time traffic delays on OR219 & OR214 between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., Monday through Friday.
 
Access to all businesses remains open during construction. Motorists should look for and follow the blue “business access” signs and blue cones to reach the businesses.
 
 
OR 18: NEWBERG – DUNDEE BYPASS (Phase 1D)
OR 18: (Hwy. 39, Salmon River Highway, mile points 55.48 to 57.99)
 
This is a grading, structures, paving, signing and signals project developing the new bypass highway alignment connecting OR99W (Hwy. 1W, Pacific Highway West) to OR219 (Hwy. 140, Hillsboro – Silverton Highway), in Yamhill County. This is the third contract for the multi-phase roadway connecting these two cities with a new route along the Willamette River. This contract creates a completed two-lane roadway from OR99W (near Niederberger Road) in Dundee to a mid-way point at Waterfront Road in Newberg.
 
Much of the construction activity for this portion of the bypass occurs away from the current state highways.
 
The primary impact to the travelling public occurs on OR99W, at the South end of Dundee, where Niederberger Road crosses OR99W, over to Parks Road. Continuing this week, the truck traffic has an increased presence, hauling aggregate material across OR99w at Niederberger Road and Parks Road.
 
Motorist should also expect intermittent traffic delays on OR99W, daily, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Brief lane closure delays are necessary for movement of the construction material haul vehicles, at this location.
 
OR 18:  NEWBERG – DUNDEE BYPASS (Phase 1E)
OR 18: (Hwy. 39, Salmon River Highway, mile points 57.99 to 59.67)
 
This is a grading, structures, paving, signing and signals project developing the new bypass highway alignment connecting OR99W (Hwy. 1W, Pacific Highway West) to OR219 (Hwy. 140, Hillsboro – Silverton Highway), in Yamhill County.  This is part of a multi-phase roadway connecting these two cities with a new route along the Willamette River.  This contract creates a completed two-lane roadway from Waterfront Road to OR219 in Newberg.
 
This week, construction will include:
 
·         Bridge construction activities will continue next Monday thru Friday with concentration around River & 13th.
·         Concrete trucks will service efforts also around River & 13th beginning at 7:30 on Monday and again at 5 AM on Thursday.
·         Pile driving activities will begin on Wednesday around Wynooski and 11th as construction begins on the new flyover viaduct structure. Piling deliveries are expected throughout the week.
·         Flaggers will be directing motorists Wednesday thru Friday at our traffic diversion on Wynooski Rd. near the east side mill entrance.
·         A flagger will direct traffic for trucks entering the roadway on Hwy 219 west of Wynooski Rd. Monday thru Friday.
 
FFO I-5 @ Kuebler Interchange, Southbound Ramp Improvements
(I-5, mile posts 250.15 to 251.76)
 
The I-5 Kuebler Interchange Project will address the increasing congestion at the interchange by modifying the existing southbound off ramp, which will decrease the conflicts at Kuebler that have caused back-ups on I-5 southbound. The new ramp will meet modern standards and contain excess capacity. The project will also add a westbound to southbound I-5 loop on ramp and modify the eastbound to southbound I-5 on ramp.
 
Over the next two weeks, a traffic change is planned that will affect night time traffic on southbound I-5. During some evenings, the left lane and median will be closed to shift I-5 traffic as part of the interchange project. This traffic configuration will be in effect for one year during construction.
 
Motorists should be aware of the increased construction activity around the interchange, proceed with caution through the work zone and obey posted speed limits.
 
Also, westbound lanes on Kuebler have been shifted slightly to the south to accommodate construction activity. During the day, travelers should watch for construction vehicles and equipment entering and exiting the work area from Kuebler.
