Barger Reconstruction Warning

Anyone who has driven on Barger Drive recently is aware of the significant road construction and delays while driving through that area. The work will continue through the first few weeks of school.

  • Anticipate long delays; leave early; pack plenty of patience; stay safe
  • Please encourage your child to walk or bike to school. The sidewalks should be completely refurbished and open by the first day of school.
  • Choose alternative routes, especially for those heading to Willamette High School. The construction at Barger and Echo Hollow is big and you should expect traffic and delays to be substantial.

Here is the good news. The finished roadway will include:

  • Upgraded sidewalk access ramps
  • Traffic signal improvements
  • New median islands with trees and landscaping
  • The addition of stormwater treatment facilities
