Traffic Impact

Activity in the work zone is intermittant as our utility partners work to move their lines and pipes to new locations. The detour remains in place.

When road construction restarts, expect delays and lane closures. The intersections of U.S. 30 and Millard Road and/or U.S. 30 and Bennett Road will be impacted at various times during construction.​ Detour options will be marked.

Work will be done Monday through Friday, from 6:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There will be nightwork to set up and stage traffic control.

Work will be done in stages as our contractor coordinates with our utility partners and the railroad contractor. Construction is estimated to be completed in 2022.

​This project will improve the safety of U.S. 30 between Scappoose and St. Helens (from mileposts 25.7 to 27.2) in Columbia County by:

  • Increasing the turning radius of the right turn lane from U.S. 30 onto Bennett Road by widening and restriping the roadway near the intersection.
  • Restricting left turns onto U.S. 30 from Bennett Road by creating a median.
  • Adding a traffic signal at U.S. 30 and Millard Road.
  • Widening Millard Road to provide protected access to U.S. 30 from Millard Road.
  • Upgrading the rail crossings at both Millard and Bennett Roads, work to be completed by the railroad.
