November 26-December 4
FFO I-5 @ OR214 Interchange (Woodburn) Development
OR219/OR214: (Hillsboro – Silverton Highway, mile points 36.24 to 37.87) & (I-5, mile points 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.
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 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:
· No concrete placement will take place at 14th and College.
· Crews will perform road work on Wynooski near the barricaded section of roadway. Flaggers will direct one-way alternating traffic.
· Construction crews will observe Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday and Friday November 26 and 27. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
· Bridge construction activities will continue at both sites.
· On Monday November 30, concrete trucks will service our bridge construction activities at 7 AM east of 14th and College. Concrete is also tentatively scheduled for Friday, December 4 west of 14th and College.
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.
Motorists should be aware of the increased construction activity around the interchange, proceed with caution through the work zone and obey posted speed limits.
