McLoughlin Boulevard lane closures continue

One lane of northbound Southeast McLoughlin Boulevard (Highway 99E) will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays between Naef Road and the Clackamas River Bridge as the highway paving project gets fully under way.

Although the Oregon Department of Transportation warns that schedules are subject to change, southbound lane closures also are scheduled 7 p.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.

In addition, road users will see closures of the northbound and southbound shoulders day and night, Monday through Friday. And starting Monday, May 12, additional northbound lane closures will take place from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. weekdays.

The project, along a two-mile stretch, is scheduled for completion in the fall.

Project goals

1. Rebuild sections where the roadway is failing under the asphalt.

2. Repave from Naef Road to the Clackamas River Bridge.

3. Fill in sidewalk gaps at multiple locations.

4. Connect the traffic signals to improve traffic flow.

5. Stripe bike lanes.

6. Rebuild substandard ADA ramps in multiple locations.

When vehicle-lane paving and grinding begins, multiple lane closures will occur at night along the highway between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. when traffic volumes are low. All business access will remain open during the day, but travelers should expect delays when entering or exiting driveways during paving.

There will be no closures on major holiday weekends.
