State Highway Construction
September 13-20
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 onto the new asphalt widening from Lawson Street to Broughton Way. The full shift of traffic to the north side of OR 214 will occur on September 16. Also, all traffic going southbound on I-5 will be using the new southbound 1-5 loop ramp. A new traffic signal will be installed at the I-5 northbound ramp to allow pedestrians to cross the ramps.
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.
OR 99W (Pacific Highway West) Pavement Preservation Project
From OR 240 (Newberg) to OR 18 (McDougal’s Corner)
This is a pavement preservation project that includes replacing the old pavement, guardrails, construct updated ADA ramps and sidewalks in Newberg and update signage to improve overall safety and driving conditions. The project will be completed in October.
The contractor has been working between M.P. 26.47 and M.P. 30.0 (South of Dundee) on OR 99W at night this week. Work includes making pavement repairs in preparation for paving work. Night work should be expected starting at 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Thursday nights.   Traffic will be staged with flaggers controlling traffic.  Motorists should expect delays.
Drainage, curb and sidewalk continues in Newberg and at the OR 99W and OR 18 intersection into August. 
Night time paving work is scheduled to begin August 10 with work starting in Newberg. 
OR 18B to close for three days east of Willamina at railroad crossing and Houser Road 
WILLAMINA – OR 18 Business (Willamina-Sheridan Highway) will close from September 13-15 to allow crews to repair the railroad crossing at milepost 3.4 on OR 18B and Houser Road.   The Oregon Department of Transportation, Portland Western Railroad and Yamhill County are working together on the project.
The closure will begin at 5 a.m. on Saturday, September 13 and re-open at 5 a.m. on Monday, September 15 for the Monday morning commute.
A detour will be in place with signs directing traffic around the work area. The detour will be OR 18. There will also be variable message signs (VMS) placed in strategic areas to direct traffic.
On Saturday, September 13, crews will remove the pavement from around the railroad tracks on both OR 18B and Houser Road. Then, the Railroad will replace any rotten timber ties throughout the area and re-level the tracks. After the tracks have been re-leveled, ODOT will resurface the tracks on both OR 18B and Houser Road. This should be completed by Sunday evening and the pavement will have until 5 a.m. Monday to cool before the road is re-opened.
