During construction, ODOT will maintain two-way traffic on Powell Boulevard with some intermittent nighttime lane closures. There will be a marked pedestrian path and striped bike lane in both directions during construction. We will maintain driveway access or temporarily accommodate vehicles in driveways when needed. Construction will happen in three stages.
Stage 1 of construction began spring 2019 and will continue through fall 2019. In this phase, all traffic is shifted to the north side of Powell Blvd while improvements are built on the south side.
Stage 2 of construction begins winter 2019 and will continue through summer 2020. In this phase, all traffic will be shifted to the south side of Powell Blvd while improvements are built on the north side.
Stage 3 of construction begins summer 2020 and will continue through fall 2020. In this phase, all traffic will return to the permanent travel lanes on the north and south sides of Powell Boulevard while ODOT constructs the new center turn lane.
ODOT will complete landscaping through the corridor after all the roadway improvements are complete.
