Survey crews working for the Oregon Department of Transportation will be in the John Day area during the month of November and early December collecting data for a new sidewalk upgrade project
The sidewalk will be constructed along the west side of Highway 395/South Canyon Boulevard between Southwest Sixth Avenue and Grant Union Jr./Sr. High School, according to an ODOT press release.
Travelers may experience minor delays starting Wednesday, Nov. 2, as crews, orange cones and survey signs appear along the route. The survey measurements and documentation will be used to develop plans and specifications, with the project going out for bid late 2018. Sidewalk construction is expected to occur in 2019. Traffic impacts due to survey work will be minimal, but drivers are cautioned to watch for, and be mindful of, crews and equipment in the area.
