Lane closures and detours will be necessary. To minimize disruptions during commute times, lane closures will be limited as much as possible and night work will be allowed.
Parts of this project will create noise. Noise restrictions will be enforced during night work, or a variance will be obtained if it is unavoidable.
The multi-use paths underneath the Willamette River Bridge on both banks will remain open during construction. Protection measures will be in place to ensure the safety of people on the path from work being done on the bridge above the path.
Exact timelines are not known yet, but during part of the project there will be closures of the southbound Delta Highway ramp to I-105 westbound and the I-105 ramps at 6th and 7th. Notice of closures will be given well in advance.
One two week closure of the Washington/Jefferson Street Park, including the restrooms, is planned. Otherwise, the park and restrooms will remain open during construction.
Construction is scheduled to begin in summer 2018 and will be completed in fall 2020.
