Expect summer delays near Oregon City for road resurfacing
Clackamas County will close lanes on major thoroughfares just outside Oregon City to resurface approximately 4.4 miles of roadway starting Friday, June 8.
The work is scheduled to be completed by Aug. 31. Officials say that the work will take place during daylight hours, Mondays through Fridays, but warn that there is a possibility of weekend or night work depending on weather and other conditions.
The roads to be resurfaced are:
· Maplelane Road, from Maplelane Court to Ferguson Road
· Holly Lane, from Redland Road to Maplelane Road
· Ferguson Road, from Redland Road to Beckman Road.
County officials say that all three roads will remain open during construction, but there will be lane closures and delays of up to 20 minutes at a time. Travelers will be assisted by flaggers and pilot cars. Travelers are being asked to slow down and use caution near the work zone.
This road maintenance is being funded through the county's share of the state gas tax, vehicle registration fees and commercial weight-mile taxes.
