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: 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.
 
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.
 
Transport to the project of large bridge girders is planned for mid-day on January 28th and 29th, 2015. These trucks will be coming into Dundee from the southwest; the trucks will turn southeast onto 5th Street. These trucks may need to wait briefly in the center lane of OR 99W, as they prepare for a safe turn. Flaggers will assist traffic on OR99W, 5th Street, Edwards Drive and 8th Street, as the long loads are brought to each site. The beam delivery is scheduled to occur in a timely sequence to minimize hold times once they arrive.
 
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.
 
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.
 
The contractor will be working adjacent to Wynooski St., south of 11th St. Motorists can expect brief delays while flaggers control traffic on Wynooski St. for the clearing work
 
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 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.
 
I-5 @ Kuebler Interchange – Southbound Ramp Improvements - Clearing
(Pacific Highway, mile post 251.5 – 251.8)
 
This project will upgrade the existing interchange to support the area’s planned expansion. The project will upgrade the existing interchange by adding a westbound to southbound loop ramp and modifying an eastbound to southbound ramp and the existing southbound off ramp.  Initial work is to clear areas for future improvements.
 
For the week of January 26th:  Crews will be working on the both sides of the southbound off ramp. Crews may be working on the shoulders of the ramp. Intermittent flagging with delays up to 20 minutes should be expected on Fairview Industrial Drive.
