OREGON CITY -- One travel lane in each direction on Highway (Hwy) 99E will be closed 24 hours a day starting the morning of June 12 to maintain a safe environment for both the contractor and traveling public. The lane closures will be between south of S 2nd Street to south of the Arch Bridge. The actual work zone is located in the north bound travel lanes of Hwy 99E, north of Tumwater Street and south of the railroad overcrossing near Main Street.
The City of Oregon City is moving forward with replacement of an existing 10" vertical exposed waterline. This project is necessary to ensure the ability to deliver water to the downtown area.
The City has contracted with Wildish Standard Paving Co. to replace the waterline. In addition to waterline work, this project will also require removal of the rock fall protection mesh, evaluation of the rock face for loose rocks or large boulders, boulder anchoring, and reinstallation of the slope mesh. In order to safely and efficiently complete this work, the contractor will be allowed to close two of the four travel lanes on Hwy 99E for a period of 12 consecutive days.
In order to limit the time needed to complete the work, the contractor may perform construction along Hwy 99E at any time during the allowable lane closure period. Work on top of the bluff and along the McLoughlin Promenade shall be limited to 7 am to 6 pm. McLoughlin Promenade use during construction may be impacted.
The City of Oregon City is coordinating with Clackamas County such that the road closure on South End Road will be complete and open to through traffic prior to the 99E lane closures.
With only one travel lane in each direction available to vehicles, we anticipate traffic impacts to the area -- please plan accordingly. Thank you for your understanding as we work to maintain necessary and valuable public infrastructure.
