As part of the Jen-Hsun & Lori Huang Collaborative Innovation Complex project, the intersection at SW 26th Street and NW Orchard Avenue will be closed to vehicle traffic on Friday, January 5 to allow for construction activity.

The north-south crosswalk on Orchard Ave. will be closed for pedestrians. The sidewalks in the area will remain open, except for a section of sidewalk on the east side of the intersection, directly in front of Johnson Hall. The loading dock north of Johnson Hall will be closed except for pre-arranged deliveries.

Bike lanes in the area will be closed.

Update on the Washington Way Improvement Project: SW Washington Way between SW 17 and SW 26th Streets will be reopening for all motor vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic on Monday, January 8. The active work zone on Washington Way will shift to the west and the street and north sidewalk will remain closed between 26th and 30th Streets.

Cycle Track Opening: as part of the project, a two-way, dedicated cycle track will be constructed on Washington Way between 15th and 35th Streets. The cycle track section between 17th and 26th Streets will be opening on Monday, January 8. Because the cycle track between 15th and 17th Streets is not yet complete, temporary pavement markings will direct cyclists traveling eastbound to exit the cycle track at SW Benton Place and cross traffic to rejoin the existing bicycle lane.
