State Highway Construction
November 15 to 22
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.
Local traffic is now shifted into the permanent lanes from Willow Ave to Broughton Way.
The newest traffic pattern change requires eastbound OR219 / OR214 traffic wishing to access I-5 northbound to be in the right lane. This change should improve the overall flow of traffic through the interchange.
Motorists can expect intermittent night time lane closures on I-5, between the hours of 6 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. northbound and 7 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. southbound, Monday through Friday.
Motorist should also expect intermittent night time traffic delays on OR219 & OR214 between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., Monday through Friday.
Access to all businesses will remain open during construction. Motorists should look for and follow the blue “business access” signs and blue cones to reach the businesses.
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.
A major portion of the construction activity occurs away from the current state highways, so the impacts experienced are due to trucks entering and leaving the project.
The primary impact to the travelling public occurs on OR99W, at the South end of Dundee, where Neiderberger Road crosses OR99W, over to Parks Road.
Motorist should also expect intermittent traffic delays on OR99W, daily, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. Brief lane closure delays are necessary to provide access and egress of the construction material haul vehicles, at this location.
I-5: Chemawa Rd. – OR22 Median Barrier (Salem)
(Pacific Highway, mile post 253.83 to 258.92 and 260.03 to 260.25)
This project consists of installing guardrail, concrete barrier, and cable barrier along the median of I-5 through the Salem area.
The scheduled work includes removal of the earthen berm and installation of cable barrier between mile post 253.83 and 258.92. Both the southbound left (fast) lane and northbound shoulder (northbound left lane may be closed sporadically) will be closed Sunday through Thursday nights from 8:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. to facilitate construction between mile post 253.83 and 258.92. The roadway shoulders along the median, both in the northbound and southbound directions, may be closed or have their width reduced at any hours of the day as required to facilitate the work. Drive through the area with caution. Oregon State Police will be enforcing the speed limit through the work zone area. The project is scheduled to be completed in February 2014.
