Highway 99W Newberg Dundee Bypass

About the Project

The Newberg-Dundee Bypass is a controlled-access expressway that will significantly reduce traffic congestion on OR99W and improve livability and traffic flow in the surrounding communities. "Phase 1" will extend four miles from OR219/Wilsonville Road to OR99W south of Dundee, with one travel lane in each direction.

The full bypass will be an 11-mile, four-lane highway around the cities of Newberg and Dundee. While the entire bypass has been approved, funding is only currently available for the first part of the project.

ODOT has moved into the final design stage of Phase 1. This includes final engineering and preparation of construction plans. There will be four contracts for construction, which allows some work to begin early while other elements are still being designed. In 2013, the community will see the installation of some stormwater retention areas and fill dirt being placed at the locations of roadway and bridges to be built between 2014 and 2017. Phase 1 is expected to be completed in 2017.

ODOT spokesman Lou Torres said that contractors have been pushing hard to get much of the excavation and dirt-moving done before the rainy season begins. On the south end of Dundee, where contractors are creating the massive fishhook intersection, Torres said, work will continue for the next couple of years, with residents continuing to see a lot of heavy equipment on the roadways.“Folks who live on that side of Dundee are going to see a lot of construction for the next couple of years, and also the folks in the south part of Newberg, are going to see a lot of work picking up as well,” he said.

Contract Awarded and Truck Traffic Increasing in Dundee
August 5, 2014

Neighbors and travelers on OR 99W will begin noticing more construction on the bypass in late July. Hamilton Construction was awarded the contract to build the portion of the project from Chehalem Creek to the connection with OR 99W on the southwest side of Dundee. This includes six of the ten bridges that will be built for the project. Materials and equipment will be hauled in over the next few years as bridges, stormwater facilities, and roadbeds are built.
