For work related to the Washington Way Improvement Project, tree removal work along SW Washington Way between SW 30th and SW 26th streets is scheduled to start on Monday, March 21, 2022 through Thursday, March 24, 2022. Expect intermittent roadway and sidewalk closures related to the tree removal work. Flaggers will be on site to direct vehicle and pedestrian traffic when traffic interruptions occur. Along the north side of SW Washington Way, 27 red maple trees must be removed to accommodate the wider roadway and for the City of Corvallis water line replacement to occur. The 25-year-old trees will be replaced with new diverse trees and shrubs as part of the project’s landscape design. The Student Legacy Park South parking lot (lot #3293) will also be closed from Monday, March 21, 2022 through Thursday, March 24, 2022 for the tree removal work.
Additionally, a contractor will be on site to perform waterline potholing work at the intersection of SW 35th Street and SW Washington Way from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 22, 2022. Flaggers will be onsite at the intersection and traffic impacts are expected to be minimal.
