Beavercreek Road resurfacing begins Aug. 12
Clackamas County will resurface approximately 5 miles of roadway on Beavercreek Road from Upper Highland Road to Henrici Road starting Monday, Aug. 12.
The road will remain open during construction, but county officials are warning drivers that there will be lane closures with delays of up to 20 minutes at a time. Travelers will be assisted by flaggers and pilot cars, and are asked to slow down and use caution near the work zone.
While the entire project isn't expected to be completed until mid-October, the most significant traffic impacts are expected to be between Monday, Aug. 12, and Monday, Sept. 9. County officials say that work will generally take place from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday, but there is a possibility of additional weekend or night work depending on weather and other conditions. No work is expected to take place on Labor Day weekend starting at noon on Friday, Aug. 30, through 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 3.
The county and Beavercreek Elementary School encourage using school transportation whenever possible to relieve congestion in the area. Parking on the shoulder of Beavercreek Road will be limited for the duration of the project.
The project estimated at $2.2 million is being funded through the county's share of state gas tax, vehicle registration fees and commercial weight-mile taxes.
