state highway construction update
 
 
May 28 to June 4
 
 
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 month, 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.
 
  • Crews have set up traffic signage and restriped travel lanes in work areas. Travel delays can be expected on OR 219 and Springbrook Road near work areas.
  • OR 219 at Industrial Way – signage and signal adjustments, widening, and pipe work are occurring in the area
  • Springbrook Road (south side) near 2nd Street - crews are building sound walls on the south side along the Nut Tree Ranch and Mountain View communities
  • Springbrook Road near Hayes – sidewalk work
Motorist should expect intermittent daytime traffic delays on Springbrook Rd., 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. 
 
·         Grading work continues near College Street with some impacts to traffic next week.
 
  • Construction continues on the nearly half mile long bridge structure between 11th Street and 14th Street in south Newberg. Early morning concrete pours must occur every other month for sections of the bridge deck. The concrete pour for a section of bridge deck can take up to 18 hours, so crews begin as early as 2 a.m. Three more of these dates are anticipated with the next in mid-June. Exact dates are determined closer to the anticipated date and are dependent on weather and concrete availability.
  • Construction continues on the bridge structures just east of Wynooski Road. Flaggers are assisting traffic on Wynooski Road, as necessary.
 
 
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.
 
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 dig outs 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.
 
On-site work began this week with removal of an old waste oil tank.  The contractor has begun pole foundation work.  At this point, the contractor is working from the backside on all of the corners, with the work during the day without impacting traffic.
 
Construction will be completed in the fall.
