Road construction has begun at the I-5 Harvard interchange in Roseburg, Oregon.
Motorists can expect nighttime lane closures on Harvard Avenue and Bellows Street until the end of summer. Nearby residents should expect nighttime noise consistent with road construction.
The I-5 Harvard interchange was built in the 1950s and remodeled in the mid-1970s. The current project will bring the interchange up to 2019 standards, replacing the traffic signals on both sides of the freeway, realigning Bellows and the southbound ramps, adding turn lanes, constructing new ADA-compliant sidewalks and making other improvements.
The project will require a two-week closure of Bellows Street and both southbound ramps this summer, probably in July. The ramps and Bellows Street will remain open during Graffiti Weekend (July 10-14) and the Douglas County Fair (August 4-10). The Oregon Department of Transportation will notify the community and local media of the exact closure dates as soon as a schedule becomes available.
Work on this project is scheduled to be completed this October.
