Weekly Construction Update
March 21, 2018
Here is a summary of the work happening on the various construction projects affecting streets around the city. Please feel free to contact Mike McCarthy with any questions or concerns.
Pavement Patching in Northern Tigard Neighborhoods
This summer we will be slurry sealing many of the neighborhood streets in northern Tigard. While slurry seal is a very cost-effective way to counter the effects of weathering, it does not stop cracking. The street crew is removing and replacing areas of more heavily cracked pavement in preparation for the slurry seal work.
Filming near Bonita/79th and near Hall/99W
A crew is filming tomorrow on private property – in the morning on 79th Ave south of Bonita Rd, and in the afternoon at the car dealership on Hall Blvd south of Hwy 99W. If any problems develop with traffic, emergency access, etc. call Jason Pachura at (415) 509-6611
Hwy 99W (I-5 to Pfaffle) Night Sewer Pipe Work
A contractor is working at night in Hwy 99W starting next week to repair and reinforce an existing sewer pipe under Hwy 99W. Drivers should expect lane closures and delays from 8pm to 6am.
Interstate 5 Sign Replacement
A contractor for the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is updating the signs along Interstate 5 through Tigard. Some lanes of I-5 will be closed at night to install the new signs. The northbound exit 293 off-ramp to Haines St will be closed Wednesday and Thursday nights, and the northbound on-ramp from Haines will be closed Friday night.
Interstate 5 (Hwy 99W to I-205) Paving and Auxiliary Lane
The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) has begun construction on a project to add a southbound auxiliary lane on Interstate 5 from Lower Boones Ferry Rd to I-205, improve on- and off-ramps, and repave Interstate 5 (both directions) from Hwy 99W to I-205. Expect some nighttime lane closures through fall 2019.
Wall Street (south of Hunziker)
Wall Street is under construction south of Hunziker Rd. Access is available to local properties (including Potso Dog Park) but drivers should expect delays.
