Washington Way and 15th Street’s north phase is scheduled to open to all northbound and westbound traffic in August 2014.


Corvallis: With weather so nice it makes you want to skip and dance, coming back after a three-day weekend doesn’t seem so bad. Highs will be in the low 90s until mid week, when they drop to the upper 80s. Lows in the mid 50s. Sunny all week.

Central Oregon: Sunny all week with a slight chance of thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 80s to low 90s, lows in the upper 50s.

Newport: For those avoiding the hot temperatures in the valley, partly sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 60s will be just right. Lows in the 50s.

Statewide: For OSU employees around the state, find your local forecast here: http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/pqr/
