15th Street nearing completion, set to reopen to traffic Friday, September 19, 2014. The City of Corvallis and OSU’s cooperative project to reconstruct 15th Street and Washington Way is
nearing completion and both streets will be open to traffic on Friday, September 19, 2014.

The new traffic signal will not be fully functional until mid-November when the railroad is expected to complete installation of a new crossing gate at the tracks. Until that time, the intersection will operate
as an all-way stop. Temporary stop signs will be installed and the traffic signal will be set to flash red.

Pedestrians should also be aware that the railroad has directed closure of 15th Street sidewalks at the tracks within their right-of-way until the crossing gate is installed. Pedestrians will be directed to the
17th Street crossing to access campus north of the tracks. With the installation of the railroad crossing gate in November, pedestrian access across the tracks at 15th Street will be restored, and the traffic signal
will become fully functional.

Corvallis Transit System (CTS) will return to normal routes starting Monday, September 22, 2014. For detailed bus route information, visit CTS’s website at www.Corvallis.Transit.com or call 541-766-6998.

Parking will be restored along the west side of 11th Street between Jefferson Avenue and Western Boulevard on Monday, September 22, 2014.

Due to necessary leak repairs in the steam tunnel, Valley Library will be without steam starting at 7:00 am on Thursday, September 18, 2014 through 4:30 pm on Friday, September 19, 2014. This shutdown will affect all building hot water and steam. There is a possibility that the steamfitters will be able to restore the steam sooner than scheduled.
