None at this time. Construction is being done off the roadway and is focused on the earth work to build the new county connector road, Julia Road.
Construction Impacts4/11/21 UPDATE:
Due to the ice storm earlier this year, we are experiencing some delays. We will need to complete the project in stages. The construction of the OR 551 left turn lane and paving the new county connector road will be delayed and completed Spring 2022.
Construction activities will take place at different times:
- Most of the construction will be done at night.
- Some daytime work will take place at the OR 551 and Ehlen Road intersection.
- Small portions of Ehlen Road will likely need to be constructed under 24 hour flagging because the road is not wide enough to maintain two lanes of traffic.
Traffic and movement through the work zone will be controlled by flaggers and lanes will be clearly marked.
Detours may be needed if the construction of Julia Road is not complete before we install the traffic separator. The detour routes will only be necessary for traffic accessing Ehlen Road and Boones Ferry Road. The traffic on OR 551 will mostly be unaffected.

Access for pedestrians, including those with disabilities, will be available and identified through or around work zones.
