state highway construction update
 
April 30 to May 7
 
 
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. However, for the next few months, they will be actively rebuilding approximately 2,000 feet of the OR99W roadway from MP 27 back to the intersection of OR99W with Niederberger Road and Parks Drive at the south end of Dundee.
 
The current lane striping, on OR99W, channelizes the two-lane, two-way traffic, with a ‘Left Turn Lane’, to one side of the road. This allows room to rebuild the other side of OR99W through this section.
 
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.
 
 
OR 18: NEWBERG – DUNDEE BYPASS (Phase 1G)
OR 18: (Hwy. 39, Salmon River Highway, mile points 55.48 to 57.99)
 
This is the third contract in the multi-phase bypass project that will connect the cities of Newberg and Dundee. Work activities include, but are not limited to grading, structures, paving, signing and traffic signals.  The work areas included in this portion of the bypass include OR219 (Hillsboro – Silverton Hwy) near Springbrook Rd, OR219 at 2nd Street, Springbrook Road and OR99W (Pacific Highway West) in Newberg.
 
Motorist should expect intermittent traffic delays on OR219 between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 9:00 a.m. to Noon on Fridays; and night time, between 7:00 p.m. and 6:30 a.m., Monday through Friday.
 
 
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:
 
·         Bridge construction activities will continue at both sites. 
 
·         Equipment will be moved down 11th early next week and long trucks will be delivering pile from Hwy 219 several times during the week.  Both of these activities could cause short term disruptions for traffic.
 
·         Grading work continues off of College Street to the west with minimal impacts to traffic.
 
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.
 
Expect intermittent night time lane closures on I-5 south bound.
 
Starting 9 pm on Friday, May 6, the south bound on ramp to I-5 will be closed through Sunday, May 22. Traffic will be directed to enter I-5 northbound, take Exit 253 (OR 22/OR 99E Business Exit), cross over and enter I-5 southbound.
 
Motorists should be aware of the increased construction activity around the interchange, proceed with caution through the work zone and obey posted speed limits.
 
 
OR 99W Amity to Hoffman Road
(mileposts 45 in Yamhill County to 62 in Polk County)
 
This project replaces the pavement that has become substandard throughout this section of OR 99W. In addition to grind out, paving and striping, the project includes new bridge rail and guardrail approaches, and improvements to the railroad crossing where the Portland & Western Railroad crosses OR 99W at milepost 52.7 south of Amity.
 
This project is a continuation of work that began in late summer and early fall of last year. The current work includes the installation of guardrail, cross culverts and finishing the bridge approach reconstruction at Ash Swale Bridge approximately 2 miles south of Amity.
 
Construction this spring includes the remaining digouts and then the remaining paving to begin in May with better weather.
 
OR 99E:Young Street Safety and ADA Ramps (Woodburn)
(mileposts 24.88 – 45.64 in Marion County)
 
This project reconstructs the Young Street/99E intersection, providing improved turning radii, new traffic signals, and improved bike and pedestrian facilities.  It includes a pavement overlay through the intersection.  In addition, specific interspersed sidewalk ramps will be reconstructed along the highway between Aurora and Salem to bring them into compliance with current ADA standards.
 
Construction will begin this spring and will be completed in the fall.
