The Work consists of the reconstruction of a vehicular railroad crossing located on Lower Boones Ferry Road in Lake Oswego, Oregon, approximately one half mile east of Interstate 5.  The existing roadway will be milled and planed and overlayed with HMA or WMA to improve roadway drainage and match rail reconstructed grade.  Stormwater sewer improvements, sidewalk construction for pedestrian connectivity, surface grading, and associated improvements are included in the reconstruction project.
