The new Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) system at the TV Highway and 44th Street is now operational. The new system will be controlled by temporary pushbuttons until the old system is removed. Once the old system is removed, the contractor can complete the installation with permanent pushbuttons and a replaced sidewalk on the eastbound side of the highway.
Traffic Impacts: Daytime and nighttime lane closures.
Daytime lane and shoulder closures on OR 8 between SE 44th and 45th Avenue. Nighttime lane closures from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Wednesday night on TV Highway between Brookwood Parkway and SE 44th Avenue.
