The $1,157,000 project will be constructed by the county’s contractor, Knife River Corporation– Northwest. The project is anticipated to be completed by Nov. 11.
The county said road users should use caution and anticipate single lane closures and delays in the project area during project construction.
Tumalo Road west of the intersection will be closed within the project area beginning August 31. After completing construction to the west of the intersection, Tumalo Road east of the intersection will be closed within the project area, beginning in October.
