Washington Way Realignment/15th Street Improvement Project Update:

Since project work began in March 2014 with the demolition of the Shops buildings along the 15th/Washington Way intersection, progress in the Washington Way Realignment/15th Street Improvement Project has steadily progressed. Currently, all of the major improvements are installed, and the contractor is addressing the last items needed to complete their contract by early-mid October.

The roadways opened to traffic on September 19, 2014.  However, the railroad has not procured the signal arm equipment in time to complete their project activities on schedule. Because of this delay, the pedestrian railroad crossings have been ordered to be barricaded closed until installation of the signal arms is completed.  This is estimated to be around early November.  A detour to 17th Street will remain in place for the duration of the closure.

OSU Capital Planning and Development has asked the City to work with ODOT Rail to identify options for addressing the potential safety concerns this delay brings. OSU Capital Planning and Development will continue to provide project update, detour and pedestrian preferred pathway, and construction site safety information to the campus community.
