Businesses access will be maintained during the project.
Pedestrian access will be maintained by using short detours as sidewalks are reconstructed.
Existing north and southbound vehicle lanes on the highway will stay open during the project.
Expect nighttime single lane closures.
Except where noted, work hours are at night from 7 p.m. Sundays to 6 a.m. Fridays. During these times, there may be single-lane closures with flaggers safely directing traffic. There could be intermittent travel delays during construction work hours. All lanes will be open by the morning commute.
LOCAL ACCESS DETOUR (SUMMER 2019)
From July 8 through August 29, 2019 the center turn lane on Pacific Highway West/OR 99W approaching Main Street/OR 51, allowing us to rebuild half the roadway at a time, while allowing both northbound and southbound through traffic lanes to remain open.
Eastbound and westbound traffic on OR 99W wanting to turn onto Main Street will be redirected using detour signs to Hoffman Road during this stage of work. During this local detour, drivers on Main Street will still be able to turn north or south onto OR 99W at the signal, just like they do today.
DRAINPIPE INSTALLATION, SIDEWALK RESTORATION AND BRIDGE WORK (SUMMER 2019)
Both daytime and nighttime work will occur during June. Crews will perform daytime sidewalk upgrades and repairs on OR 99W between the Monmouth Police Station and Madrona Street. Some crosswalks will be closed temporarily, but will have signed alternative pedestrian routes. Please follow signs and use caution when crossing.
Crews will work on a retaining wall near the bridge over the middle fork of Ash Creek.
In June, the contractor will install stormwater infrastructure on OR 99W between Church Street and Jackson Street. At Jackson Street, for travelers heading east, the road will be closed to through traffic with local access only. A signed detour route will be in place via Church Street.
Construction through June 2019 includes installation of sidewalk and curb ramps, underground pipes and stormwater infrastructure. The greatest impact from the project will occur in summer 2019, as crews grind and remove existing pavement and reconstruct the road.
