Includes major rebuild of deteriorating roadway
DUNDEE—A project that includes a major rebuild of the deteriorating OR 99W through downtown Dundee is about to begin. Planned roadway improvements will provide travelers with a much smoother ride and the installation of new sidewalks and streetscape will make it safer for pedestrians and bicyclists using OR 99W.
The project includes:
- Rebuilding the section of road through downtown Dundee from 1st Street to Parks Drive and repaving the road through the entire project area.
- Constructing new American for Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant ramps and sidewalks from 1st Street to 5th Street.
- Adding pedestrian crossing improvements.
- Installing new LED street lighting.
- Replacing and improving drainage features while also landscaping the water treatment areas.
- Installing new signs, guardrail, drainage, mailboxes and striping.
Crews have the option to work nightly, Sunday night through Friday morning, between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. During construction, travelers should expect intermittent daily and nightly lane closures. Expect delays. Through traffic on OR 99W can avoid most delays by planning ahead and using the Newberg-Dundee Bypass (OR 18) to get around construction in Dundee.
The $15 million project requires two construction seasons to complete and is expected to be finished by July 31, 2022.

Access for pedestrians, including those with disabilities, will be available and identified through or around work zones.
