Franklin Blvd. (OR126B & McVay Hwy: Mississippi Ave – UPRR Tracks (Phase 1))

Construction Update - Week of Mar 17, 2017

Utility work will shift to the intersection of Franklin Blvd. and McVay Hwy; the work is anticipated to occur between 6 pm to 7 am through mid-April. The utility work will require the need for lane closures and detours, as crews access wires and pipes that are below the driving surface of McVay Hwy. Please expect travel delays and detours.

 

This is another exciting step forward in the construction of the New Franklin Blvd. We appreciate your patience as crews make their way passed your home or business. All businesses will remain open and “Business Open” signs will be placed at access point(s) by utility crews while the work is happening.
