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.
 
Also, the new traffic pattern requires eastbound OR219 / OR214 traffic wishing to access I-5 northbound to be in the right lane. This change has improved 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 7:00 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 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 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.
 
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 aggregate material across OR99w at Niederberger Road and Parks Road.
 
Motorist 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.

I-5 @ Mill Creek Variable Message Sign
(Pacific Highway, mile post 252.5)
This project will install a variable message sign (VMS) on I-5 that will warn motorists on I-5 that traffic is backed up on to the highway.
Crews will be working in the median of I-5. Watch for vehicles leaving and entering the northbound fast lane.  The northbound fast lane shoulder will be narrowed to approximately 5’ in width for the duration of the project.
