Learn more about next week's construction at open house

The Oregon Department of Transportation has plans to improve the intersection of Highway 26 and S.E. Orient Drive.

The construction project, which is set to begin on Monday, Feb. 23, and expected to continue until early May, will improve safety for drivers and reduce the number of crashes at the intersection, according to an ODOT website dedicated to the project.

The project will lengthen the right turn lane from westbound Highway 26 to Orient Drive and update the traffic lights and signs.

ODOT will hold a construction open house from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 20, at the Sandy Grange Hall, 34705 SE Kelso Road, in Sandy. The public is invited to stop by and ask questions about the project.
