CORVALLIS— A pavement preservation project on US 20 between Corvallis and Albany has entered its final phase this week with a contractor for ODOT applying the final lift of pavement to a section of the highway.
The contractor has been paving between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Monday through Thursday and will add this Friday night, September 30, to the schedule.
The final section of highway to be paved is between Circle Blvd. and Corvallis. During the time of construction, the highway will be restricted to a single lane of traffic with flaggers controlling travel in alternating directions. Motorists should expect delays of 15 to 20 minutes during construction.
The paving is weather dependent. The work will be rescheduled for the next available period, should inclement weather force a postponement.
This will complete the mainline paving of the US 20: Corvallis to Albany project, a $3.2 million project that ground and inlayed 2 inches of new asphalt between Corvallis and the Lyon/Ellsworth Bridges in Albany (Milepost 0.76-10.29).
