Traffic and Maintenance

NEW! 35th Street closure: A four-week closure is planned for 35th Street this summer between Sagebrush Drive (the entrance to The Retreat) and Washington Way. While the exact dates are yet to be determined, Public Works expects the closure period to begin in late July or early August. Signs will be placed on 35th Street one week ahead of the planned closure to alert regular users of the pending traffic change. This closure will help facilitate the reconstruction of the 35th Street approaches to the railroad tracks. This project will complete improvements to the crossing which began in January 2016. Detour routes will be established along 30th Street, Jefferson Way, and Western Boulevard during this period. After the initial 4 weeks, closures will continue during construction hours, with the street being reopened to traffic on nights and weekends. Construction is expected to be complete in September 2016.

NEW! Johnson Hall: As part of the Johnson Hall project, reconstruction of 26th Street from Campus Way north to the Johnson Hall project will take place starting Monday July 25 through Aug. 10.  This will require closure of the parking and sidewalk along Ballard Hall as shown in the image (view map).  The intersection of Campus Way and 26th will remain fully open and 26th Street south of 26th will open concurrently with the closure for this work. The existing detour under the ALS/Cordley bridge will be removed Monday, July 25. During this work there may be disruptive noise and minor dust.

NEW! Crop Science Building: Due to parking lot maintenance the following lot will be closed, Crop Science Building West (Lot #3332) July 25 – July 27.  The work will be done in stages to allow for parking (view map). The lot will be reopened when the work is finished and the area is safe to enter.

29th Street: Construction on NW 29th Street will mean periodic street closures between Tyler and Grant Avenues starting on June 20. The project, which will replace aging sanitary sewer lines and mains, is already underway, but closures will be required from about 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily as the project proceeds this month. Up to two blocks will be closed at any given time for roughly three weeks per section as the project move north on 29th Street. Corvallis Transit System (CTS) will alter bus routes around the construction site.

Washington Way: The city will be reconstructing the railroad crossing at 35th Street and Washington Way this summer.  During the reconstruction of the railroad at-grade crossing, road and rail work are to take place, which will result in sidewalk and roadway closures of 35th Street July 25- Aug. 26. Additional information on closure details and duration will be shared as information is received from the city.  For questions or additional information, contact Nathan Patterson.

Hwy 20 Eddyville project update: Travelers between Newport and Corvallis should expect some brief delays to let trucks on and off of the highway at both ends of the project on U.S. 20. Ten-hour nighttime complete closures are planned to occur from Aug. 1 through the end of October, five nights a week, Sunday through Thursday. These are necessary because the drilling, blasting, and earthwork operations are above and alongside the highway and the contractor needs enough room and time to do this safely. These are currently scheduled to occur from 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., but that time may be adjusted, depending on construction safety needs. The current plan is for the road to be completely open on Friday and Saturday nights.
