Jennings Avenue: OR 99E to Oatfield Road

Project description: Construct a curb-tight sidewalk on the north side, and bicycle lanes both the north and south sides of the street for approximately 3900 linear feet. The street lacks needed facilities to connect local residents to nearby businesses and transportation options. Enhanced bicycle and pedestrian improvements will also provide safe routes and important connectivity to Jennings Lodge and Candy Lane elementary schools. Once completed, the project will provide important infrastructure elements and enhance livability in the community.

Current activities: Design began October, 2019 and take over two years to complete with construction scheduled to begin Feb. 2022. Surveying, geotechnical explorations and environmental assessment on and near the roadway occurring winter-spring 2020. Survey work completed. Environmental phase began in fall 2019 and will go through 2020. 

Schedule: Project design is underway and will be completed in the winter of 2022, with construction planned for spring 2022.

Project impact on traffic:

  • During winter-spring 2019-2020, there should be negligible or otherwise no impacts to traffic at this time with only the possibility of occasional lane closures for surveying, geotechnical explorations and environmental assessment work.
  • During spring and summer 2022, construction work is expected to occur between 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday-Friday. Temporary rolling single lane closures and detours may be expected as needed with flaggers onsite to guide travelers.
