Wilsonville Road Realignment (Newberg-Dundee Bypass Phase 1W)

Project Description: This project will realign Wilsonville Road so that it connects to OR 219 about 750 feet south of Wynooski Road. Work includes building a two-lane roadway, installing drainage facilities, removing traffic separators on Springbrook Road and other related work.

Traffic Impacts:  Motorists should expect a new traffic pattern. Wilsonville Rd now connects to OR219 south of Wynooski Rd and will no longer be directly accessible from Springbrook Rd. Message boards are installed along Wilsonville Rd, Springbrook Rd, and OR219 to help navigate the change.

There will be intermittent flagger controlled lane closures on Wilsonville Road Monday through Friday 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

When we are working on OR 219, expect delays Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., and Sunday night through Friday morning between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. The work will require flagger controlled lane closures.
