OR 219 Pedestrian Safety Project

Construction Phase

Region 2: Willamette Valley and Northwest Oregon (Newberg, Yamhill County)

​​​​​​​​​Construct sidewalks to improve pedestrian safety between Aldercrest Drive and Quail Drive.

Banner: Slow down, in the work zone it could save lives. Building a modern transportation system to help Oregon’s communities and economy thrive. During construction, Give yourself more time, try a new way or mode to get there or take a different route.


Traffic Impact

Use caution, there may be single lane closures with flaggers directing traffic as needed during daytime. 

Construction Impacts

​The week of Sept. 11 - Sept. 15, we're clearing trees and shrubs on OR 219 between Edgewood Drive and Sierra Vista Drive to prepare the area for our estimated construction date in 2024.

You can expect:

  • Construction crew and equipment.
  • Construction noise.
  • Occasional singe-lane closures during the day.

When construction starts, we anticipate work happening during the daytime. However there may be times when lane closures are needed and that will happen at night. We will also have a 4-5 day period where 24hr flagging will be needed so we can dig a trench across the road.

Construction Activities

We're clearing trees and shrubs in the area the week of Sept. 11.

We are:

  • Installing​ ADA compliant curb ramps.

  • Improving drainage.

  • Striping bike lanes on both sides of the road.​
