Boones Ferry Road closes for construction
A stretch of Boones Ferry Road was set to close this week for almost a week to allow for reconstruction of a railroad crossing near Lake Oswegos border with Tualatin.
The closure was scheduled to begin Wednesday and will last through Aug. 20 between Jean Way and 63rd Avenue.
During that time, drivers are encouraged to avoid the area if possible. About 18,000 vehicles use that stretch of road each day, according to the city.
The primary detour route will take drivers on Kruse Way to Interstate 5 and vice versa.
A secondary detour will reroute traffic around the closure via Jean Way, Pilkington Road, Lakeview Boulevard and McEwan Road.
