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.
All traffic lanes are in the final configuration, which provides access to I-5 from the right lanes and eliminates cross-traffic turns.
The final signing, 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.
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.
Please note that over the last week, two bridge structures were completed and opened to the public. Both are designed to facilitate local traffic over the new bypass highway alignment from Dundee to Newberg. One replaces the existing 8th Street and the other takes traffic from Parks Drive over to Fulquartz Landing Road, eliminating the existing connection of Fulquartz Landing Road at the corner of Parks Road and Edwards Street.
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.
Motorists 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, work will include:
· Pile driving activities will continue throughout next week around Wynooski and 11th.
· Next week, concrete trucks will service our bridge construction activities at 7 AM at College on Thursday October 15. Rebar deliveries are also expected near that location next week.
· Bridge construction activities will continue at both sites.
· Please note that crews will be working on Columbus Day October 12.
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.
Late next week, the I-5 southbound lanes will be restored to their original alignment. The I-5 southbound ramps will be flagged at night for trucks crossing Kuebler Blvd. Expect up to 20 minute delays between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Intermittently on weeknights from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., the southbound right lane will be closed to allow trucks to accelerate and merge with I-5 traffic.
Westbound lanes on Kuebler have been restored to their original location. However, eastbound lanes on Kuebler are being shifted slightly to the north to accommodate construction activity. During the day, travelers should watch for construction vehicles and equipment entering and exiting the work area from Kuebler.
Motorists should be aware of the increased construction activity around the interchange, proceed with caution through the work zone and obey posted speed limits.
