TRAFFIC IMPACTS UPDATE

**This page was last updated on September 14, 2018.

  • Hillhurst Road from the High School to NW 229th Street– Flagging on September 18th for road striping. Paving was completed as part of the future Kennedy Farms subdivision. When the work is complete, the road will be newly paved, with sidewalks, street lights, and street trees.
  • So. Royle Road and Hillhurst intersection– Traffic control will be in place all week as crews work to widen the road. This is a City project done in conjunction with the intersection improvements to Hillhurst and Royle, and the frontage improvements on Hillhurst adjacent to the new schools and the recreation complex.

So. Hillhurst Road and So. Sevier Road – Flagging beginning September 19th for road reconstruction on Hillhurst. This work is being completed in conjunction with the Taverner Ridge Phase 10 & 11 project, and will complete frontage improvements on both Hillhurst and Sevier. The existing narrow width of Sevier may cause traffic delays, but after completion Sevier will be a full width road with sidewalks and planter strips on both sides.

Main Avenue from Depot Street to the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge – Intermittent lane closures with flagging.  This is utility work in preparation for the upcoming Main Avenue Access Improvements project.  The project will complete a pedestrian path to the Refuge and replace the existing bridge and culvert over Gee Creek. The bridge replacement will address periodic flooding on the road and remove an existing barrier to fish passage.  The full project is expected to begin construction in early spring of 2019.

So. 15th Street and So. 45th Avenue – Traffic control will be in place as work is completed on So. 15th Street. Frontage improvements are being completed as part of the Cloverhill subdivision. The road is being realigned for improved safety and sight distance and to match the City’s future planned So. 45th improvements, which will include road widening and frontage improvements.

Pioneer Street/SR 501 between Reimann Road and Gee Creek Loop – Intermittent traffic control will be in place as sewer and stormwater are connected for the future Union Ridge Ranch subdivision.

This is the most current information available to City staff at this time. Construction schedules are subject to change based on weather conditions, supply availability, unexpected conditions and other factors that may impact the work underway.
