Road Construction Updates

UPDATE - Street Maintenance August 22 - 25 and Monday August 28, 2017



Update: The City has had a contract in place which requires street maintenance work to be completed prior to September 15th, which the contractor, VSS International, had scheduled for the week of August 21-25.  This week includes the eclipse taking place on Monday.  We believed most people wanting to see the eclipse would leave town prior to the road closures at 9:00 am and approved the schedule, however, we have heard many concerns from people who plan to stay in town to view it.  In an effort to stay responsive, we have partnered with VSS International to move the work from Monday, August 21st to Monday, August 28th.  We encourage everyone to be safe and be prepared.  More information can be found on the City's website.

During the week of August 22 - 25 and Monday, August 28 particular sections of your neighborhood streets may be a part of the 2017 Street Maintenance program.  View the map below to find out if you may be affected:

On the day work is to be conducted, no vehicles will be allowed to park or drive on the portions of the street indicated on the color coded map from 8 am to 6 pm.  Where necessary, “No Parking” signs will be posted 48 hours before construction starts to give you time to make alternative parking arrangements.  Vehicles that are in the road way may be towed.

Boeckman Road West of 95th Avenue Reopens July 25

Boeckman Road west of 95th Avenue in Wilsonville is planned to be reopened on Tuesday, July 25 in time for the morning commute. The road is being reopened after a three-month closure for the construction of a new roundabout at the future intersection with Kinsman Road that was completed a week ahead of schedule.

The newly-completed roundabout is part of the Kinsman Road extension project that extends Kinsman Road one mile from Barber Street near the Barber Street Bridge and the SMART/WES Commuter Rail Transit Center to connect with Boeckman Road to the north. The full Kinsman Road extension project is expected to be completed and opened next summer.

The project is a key component of City’s Transportation Systems Plan (TSP) that is building a grid network of streets for an interconnected system of transportation choices in Wilsonville to provide improve mobility and create new routing options. The new roadway provides an additional north-south roadway connection and is designed to accommodate movement of large trucks through one of Wilsonville’s industrial districts. The new section of Kinsman Road helps to alleviate traffic congestion on Boones Ferry and Boberg roads, provides more direct access to the SMART/WES transit and links the western residential neighborhoods with the City’s industrial employment areas.

Incorporated into the project are bike lanes, sidewalks, a 10-foot-wide multi-use pathway and overlook along the Coffee Lake Creek wetlands. The project also includes 2.6 acres of habitat enhancement and wetlands restoration. Stormwater culverts and wildlife crossings are being installed at regular intervals to preserve habitat and wetlands that exist on both sides of the roadway.

As part of the project, a 30-inch sanitary sewer pipe is being upsized and relocated under the new roadway to serve future growth in the Coffee Creek area of North Wilsonville.

In coordination with the Willamette Water Supply Program (WWSP), a 66-inch water line is being installed under the road as well. The WWSP is a partnership between Tualatin Valley Water District (TVWD) and the City of Hillsboro to develop the mid-Willamette River as an additional water supply for customers primarily in Hillsboro and Washington County.

The $11.3 million construction project is funded with $3.9 million by TVWD, $3.3 million in City systems development charges paid by new development, $2.2 million in Oregon Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) funds, $1.4 million in waste-water utility funds and a $0.5 million Metro Transportation Improvement Program grant.
