Projects may cause traffic headaches on Rosemont Road


Expect construction delays through April

Several construction projects along Rosemont Road are expected to cause construction delays through March and April in West Linn. Following is information regarding these projects.

NW Natural pipeline testing project 

Expect construction-related delays on Rosemont Road between Carriage Way and Hidden Springs Road during the next several weeks (work is planned to be complete by April 8).

NW Natural is performing work as part of its ongoing Pipeline Integrity Management Program as required by federal pipeline safety standards.

NW Natural is downsizing the diameter of a 500-foot section of high-pressure pipeline in this location to provide a consistent diameter pipeline in the area.

The uniform pipeline diameter is necessary for internal testing machinery to ensure the safety of the gas line. 

Similar work took place several months ago on Rosemont Road near Summit Street to prepare the gas pipeline for this integrity testing.

For more information, contact NW Natural at 503-226-4211 or at nwnatural.com

PGE reconductor project

PGE has substantially completed its portion of the reconductor work on Rosemont Road to upgrade transmission capacity and customer reliability and allowing alternate ways to feed West Linn’s distribution system in the event of an outage.

Minor intermittent localized delays can be expected all along Rosemont Road (from Lake Oswego to Salamo Road) as other utility companies (CenturyLink, Comcast, etc.) transfer their overhead lines from existing to newly set poles.

For more information, contact PGE at 503-464-2919 or at portlandgeneral.com

City water main replacement project

The city of West Linn also has a water main replacement project that is scheduled to take place mid-March through mid-April on Rosemont Road near Summit Street.

Construction-related delays should be expected.
