A celebration planned September 23 for new roadway

NEWBERG-Adults, children, friends and family are invited to come out and walk, run or bike on the nearly completed Newberg-Dundee Bypass Phase 1 roadway on September 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. While the project is on schedule to be completed late this year, this casual and fun event provides a chance to see what has been built before the Bypass opens to vehicles.

We encourage you to drop by the event on September 23 and take some time to walk or bike the road. Children’s activities will be set up on the Bypass and Oregon Department of Transportation experts will be on hand to answer questions about the project. There will be restrooms at the event site. Feel free to bring snacks and water. There will also be food available for purchase from local vendors Omar’s Mediterranean Grill and Ricky’s Tacos.

U-turns now banned at Highway 99W and Springbrook Road

Thursday 13 July 2017 at 2:09 pm

Change affects only southwest-bound turns as road expands for the completion of the Newberg-Dundee bypass

As work along Springbrook Road continues under the Newberg-Dundee bypass project, state officials are warning that drivers will no longer be able to make a u-turn from southwest-bound Highway 99W.

The change barring u-turns from that specific side of 99W is a safety precaution as the intersection is overhauled to handle more traffic heading toward the new bypass route south of Newberg, according to a press release from the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Bypass on schedule, on budget

Wednesday 01 February 2017 at 5:37 pm

While the Newberg-Dundee Bypass is on schedule to be completed by the end of the year, the final leg of construction — connecting the bypass to Highway 99W via Springbrook Road — could be among most inconvenient parts of the project for drivers.

Phase 1 of the bypass is well over halfway complete, but most of the work so far has been a hassle to a relatively low number people on south sides of Dundee and Newberg; the next segment will be more broadly felt as Springbrook Road is completely rebuilt, according to Lou Torres, spokesman for the Oregon Department of Transportation.

This will start Feb. 6 with the closure of Fernwood Road between Springbrook and Brutscher roads for up to six weeks.

Bypass work reaches 'peak' this summer

Wednesday 17 August 2016 at 7:06 pm

'Aggressive' amount of work underway, while right of way roadblocks remain

Whether it’s the increase in traffic delays, more trucks motoring through neighborhoods or the occasional 2 a.m. concrete pour, the Newberg-Dundee bypass project has been making its presence felt in recent months.

“This summer is really the peak of the bypass construction,” Oregon Department of Transportation spokesman Lou Torres said Monday. “We’ve got work going everywhere.”

During the fall, possibly in September, crews will be paving the west end of the bypass near Dundee, which is a substantial finishing touch on that section.

Bypass savings allocated for second phase land purchase

Wednesday 22 June 2016 at 3:35 pm

The second phase of the Newberg-Dundee bypass project came a step closer to fruition last week with its addition into a state transportation funding program.

The Oregon Transportation Commission, a citizen policy-setting body for transportation projects statewide, voted June 16 to add the next phase of the bypass to the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and to allocate some funding toward the first steps on Phase 2.

About $10.5 million in savings on Phase 1 construction has been earmarked for what Newberg Mayor Bob Andrews described as “seed money” for the right-of-way purchase required for the next phase, which would run from the Phase 1 terminus at Highway 219 north to Highway 99W near the base of Rex Hill.

Construction work planned for 99W in Newberg

Tuesday 21 June 2016 at 12:53 pm

Be on the lookout for nighttime lane closures on 99W in Newberg during the week of June 20. ODOT is working on part of the Newberg-Dundee Bypass Phase 1 Project. Crews will close one eastbound lane of 99W east of Springbrook Road for a few nights. They’ll also close one westbound lane for a couple of nights. The work will happen between the hours of 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. More extensive nighttime work will happen there in late summer.

Late this summer, crews will widen the road, adding new turn lanes that would connect drivers on 99W to the Newberg-Dundee Bypass using Springbrook Road. Delays should be minimal, but the construction area will shift frequently and striping on the roadway will change often. The project will extend from 99W at Springbrook in Newberg to south of Dundee and will be completed in late 2017.

Details are set for road design

Wednesday 04 May 2016 at 12:22 pm

Final plans have been approved that pave the way to build the eastern terminus of the Newberg-Dundee bypass, under the new design agreed upon earlier this spring.

Wilsonville Road will not intersect with Highway 219 directly across from the end of the bypass, as originally proposed, but will instead link up with the highway via a new road connection south of Wynooski Road. This design came about after a long battle between multiple jurisdictions, that came down to concerns over increased traffic utilizing Wilsonville Road as a cut-through from the bypass to I-5, versus concerns that altering the design would dump the traffic increases onto Newberg’s side streets.
