Nighttime traffic delays expected on Cornelius Pass Road through early October
Nighttime traffic delays on Cornelius Pass Road are expected over the next two weeks as crews continue a months-long construction on the budy road.
Betweem Wednesday, Sept. 21 and Oct. 7, drivers can expect evening delays as crews make storm sewer imporvements and pave the road.
The tentative work schedule is as follows:
7 p.m.-5 a.m. Sept. 20-21: Lane closures on Cornelius Pass between Cornell Road and Ronler Drive for storm sewer pipe work. Flaggers will direct traffic.
7 p.m.-5 a.m. Sept. 21-23: Signal shutdowns on Cornelius Pass at Cornell, Ronler, Evergreen Parkway, Imbrie Drive and the eastbound U.S. 26 ramp as needed. Flaggers will direct traffic.
7 p.m.-6 a.m. Sept. 26-Oct. 8: Signal shutdowns on Cornelius Pass at Cornell, Ronler, Evergreen Parkway, Imbrie Drive and the eastbound U.S. 26 ramp as needed. Flaggers will direct traffic.
10 p.m.-6 a.m. Sept. 26-Oct. 8: Closures on Ronler Drive, Evergreen Parkway and Imbrie Drive at Cornelius Pass Road as needed to prevent vehicles from traveling across new pavement until it has cooled. Detours will be posted when closures are in effect. Northbound and southbound travel on Cornelius Pass Road will remain open.
Timing of the traffic signal shutdowns and intersection closures are dependent upon how rapidly the work progresses and on weather, according to a release by the Washington County Department of Land Use & Transportation.
For months, crews have been working to widen Cornelius Pass Road to three lanes in each direction between Cornell Road and Highway 26. Crews are adding a center median and turn lanes at several intersections, along with sidewalks bikes lanes, and street lighting.
Construction is expected to be completed in late December.
