Watch out for paving work on a seven mile stretch of U.S. 30 between the St. Johns Bridge and Cornelius Pass Road. The paving work starts Tuesday, September 6 and lasts through the remainder of the month. This project is part of ODOT’s program to maintain and extend the life of Oregon’s highways. The road is currently in rough shape, but will be smooth once the project is complete.

Crews will separately pave each of the four lanes as well as the highway shoulders during the day between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. The paving will be done opposite the flow of rush hour traffic to help reduce congestion. However, ODOT says you should still expect possible delays up to 20 minutes or more.

Work in the westbound lanes will take place between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Saturday. Work on the eastbound lanes will take place between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and between 7 a.m. and noon on Saturday. Make sure to stay alert and watch out for workers, cyclists and pedestrians in the work zone.
