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. However, for the next couple weeks, they will be installing concrete guard-rail, signing and landscaping, just south of the intersection of OR99W, with Niederberger Road and Parks Drive, at the south end of Dundee.
 
The primary impact to the traveling public, during the day, occurs on OR99W, at the South end of Dundee, where Niederberger Road crosses OR99W, over to Parks Road. This week, there will be truck traffic, hauling material across OR99w at Niederberger Road and Parks Drive.
 
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.
