Work on South Willamette is expected to wrap-up this month! The traffic signals at 27th and Willamette should be functional this week and the repaving work from 23rd to 24th begins this week. The paving and sidewalk work is complete and the pedestrian lighting should be operational by the end of the month.
The South Willamette Street Improvement project focuses on safety, function, and pavement condition on Willamette Street from 23rd to 29th Avenue. The project will rehabilitate and pave the street, keeping the center turn lane and bike lanes and adding widened sidewalks, pedestrian countdown timers at intersections, pedestrian-scale lighting, and street trees.
