Each contractor's anticipated holiday schedule is listed below.
Paving on Mapleton Drive – truck traffic increase on Kenthorpe Way
Final paving and roadway restoration on Mapleton Drive, Kenthorpe Way and Old River Road will be conducted by the City of West Linn and its contractors.
Starting this week, the city plans to place a 4-inch base layer of asphalt over the roadway where the raw water pipe was installed on Mapleton Drive, between the east end of the street and the east entrance of the treatment plant. During this work, the existing asphalt will be ground, the roadway prepared and graded, and the new asphalt will be placed. Work is expected to take about 4-5 days to complete.
State Street crossing between Green Street and McVey Avenue
Starting Monday, Nov. 16, crews will install pipe across State Street and along McVey Avenue at night. Work hours are 8 p.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. During this time, the traffic signal at State Street and McVey Avenue will be turned off, lane closures will be in place, and flaggers will direct traffic through the intersection. This portion of construction is expected to take about a week. To maintain safety, please drive slowly through the work area and obey flagger directions.
