Pioneer St – Road construction on Pioneer Street for frontage improvements between the 35th and Royle Road roundabouts is ongoing and will impact travel through the end of September. 

Intermittent flagging is currently underway, but additional lane closures and delays will occur as construction proceeds.  Expect delays now through September 30th when final paving is scheduled. In October, intermittent flagging may occur as the contractors do final striping, electrical, sidewalks, and landscape work. 

When finished, this section of Pioneer Street will have 4 travel lanes, a signalized pedestrian crossing, sidewalks, landscaping, and streetlights on both sides. 

S Royle Road – Flagging on S Royle Rd about 1500 feet north of Hillhurst, Thursday, September 10th through Friday, September 18th. The work will be completed by contractors for NW Natural to serve new subdivisions off Royle Rd. 

N 10th St – The City of Ridgefield will be completing road repairs on N 10th St between Royle Road and the end of N 10th Monday, September 21st through Friday, September 25th. The road will be open to local residents only. 

Mill Street RR Crossing – The Mill Street Railroad Crossing is closed permanently.
A detour route to the waterfront and boat ramp is available using the Division Street Railroad Crossing. This closure is part of the Pioneer Street Rail Overpass project.

The Pioneer Street Rail Overpass, when completed, will provide safe access to and from the waterfront for motorists and pedestrians. Upon completion of the Pioneer Rail Overpass, the two existing rail crossings in Ridgefield – one at Division Street and the other at Mill Street – will be closed. The result will be safer passage because vehicles and pedestrians will not be crossing directly on train tracts, and, as a result, trains will not need to blow their whistle as they pass through. 

Heads Up: Interstate Bridge Trunnion Replacement

ODOT has postponed the I-5 Interstate Bridge Trunnion Replacement Project to keep the highway system as clear as possible for wildfire evacuees. They will begin the closure of the northbound span at 12:01 AM Saturday, September 19th and it will remain closed until 11:59 PM Sunday, September 27th. 

The northbound span of the Interstate Bridge will close from September 19–27, 2020 as crews replace mechanical parts that help lift and lower the bridge. The Interstate Bridge is located on I-5 where it connects Oregon and Washington across the Columbia River.

Heavy traffic, congestion and long delays are expected in the region on I-5, I-205, I-84, SR 14 and local streets in north Portland and south Vancouver throughout construction. Everyone can help reduce congestion during the closure by using options such as delaying or shifting trips, biking, taking transit, or working from home or another location when possible.
