Sandy Boulevard will remain open during the work, with traffic delays at times. Flaggers will direct traffic on a single lane during paving operations and at other times. Access will be maintained for residents and businesses, with brief delays during paving near driveways.
Motorists can use alternate routes such as NE Halsey Blvd., NE Marine Drive, and Interstate 84 to avoid delays.
Weather permitting, the work should be completed by the end of 2017. Construction cost is approximately $1.7 million, with funds coming from the county, Federal Highway Administration and from development fees.
