Wembley Park Road Construction – Heading toward an October Completion

Watch for road closures and detours around the work area during our final push to complete paving and final restoration of Wembley Park Road this month.

Multiple crews are working in the area. Remaining work includes some paving, asphalt driveway transitions, ditch lining, berms, striping and other landscape restoration along the road. Please drive slowly for everyone’s safety. The work zone and traffic control changes. Neighbors will have access to their homes, but may experience some delay.

Construction schedules can often change due to weather, crews, and materials availability.

Major activities:

Paving at Country Club Road and near Uplands Elementary is planned or Wednesday, October 7 and Thursday, October 8. (Schedule always subject to weather and equipment.)

Completion of all asphalt driveway transitions (the connection between driveways and Wembley Park Road) for the entire project should be complete by mid-October. Most are already complete.

Remaining work, such as ditch lining, berms, striping, signage, and other landscaping restoration should be complete in October.

NIGHT WORK – You may see night crews applying striping and intersection markings on the pavement. The work is brief and does not create much noise.

Other activities:

Additional pavement and concrete work is happening at Country Club Road.

All asphalt driveway transitions (the connection between driveways and Wembley Park Road) for the entire project should be complete by mid-September. Many are already complete.

Remaining work, such as ditch lining, berms, striping, signage, and other restoration should be complete in October.
 

Thank you for your patience.


What to Expect

Construction spring/summer 2020:

There will be full road closures in short segments, with signed detours, as improvements are completed. Drinking water, stormwater, sewer pipes will be rehabilitated, and then the area will be paved. Local access to homes in the work area will be provided at all times.

By late fall, the neighborhood will have nearly a mile of smooth new road and improved storm drainage.

Your patience during construction is appreciated to maintain everyone’s safety. Please:

  • Abide by all traffic controls.
  • Avoid work areas as much as possible, whether on foot or on wheels.

Work Hours

Work hours are generally, Mondays through Fridays, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Work zones will be fully closed to traffic, with detours in place 24 hours per day. Closed segments will be unsafe for travel, with excavation up to a foot deep. Only neighbors will be allowed access near closed segments.

Detours may temporarily increase traffic on nearby streets.

Scope of the Work

The city will be completing the following work:

  • Water main: relocating and rebuilding the water main before the road work.
  • Storm drainage: replacing the stormwater system to provide better drainage and improve water quality.
  • The road: removing and replacing the surface pavement and the underlying roadbed more than a foot deep — no more cracks and potholes!

The sanitary sewer system was repaired last year in some locations. NW Natural upgraded some of their natural gas infrastructure in advance of the road work.

Existing walking paths near or along the road will remain in place after construction. No additional paths or sidewalks are being added.

Access for Services

Fire and emergency services will have access to the neighborhood at all times.
The City and the contractor will help maintain neighborhood services such as garbage pickup and mail delivery.

Driveway Access

If your home is on Wembley Park Road, construction will likely block your driveway at some point for a short period. Crews will leave advance notice at your front door.

If you’re planning a move or other work that depends on driveway access, get in touch as soon as possible. (See contact information below.)
