Highway 99W to get fresh coat

Pavement preservation project will be from Highway 240 (Newberg) to Highway 18

Jun 6, 2014


(Oregon Department of Transportation)  Starting later in June, a contractor working for the Oregon Department of Transportation will begin a pavement preservation project on OR 99W between OR 240 (Main Street) in Newberg and OR 18 (McDougal Junction). The work includes replacing the old pavement, guardrails, construct updated ADA ramps and sidewalks in Newberg and update signage to improve overall safety and driving conditions. The project will be completed in October.

Around June 23, the contractor will begin with the sidewalk work in Newberg. The work to rebuild the railroad crossing near SW 1st Street is expected to begin on the weekend of July 12-13. The five miles of pavement restoration on OR 99W is expected to begin in mid-July.

The project does not include paving through the City of Dundee. The City and ODOT are currently constructing storm water upgrades, pedestrian improvements and landscaping. The plans are to pave OR 99W in Dundee in 2015 after the city’s projects are completed.

Due to the high traffic volumes on OR 99W, the paving work will be done primarily at night, Sunday through Thursday, between 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. One lane will be closed with flaggers controlling two-way traffic with delays of up to 20 minutes. Motorists should expect night time travel delays and allow for extra travel time. Driveway accesses will be maintained.
