Forest Grove Drive Phase II Opening

POSTED: December 8, 2017

Phase II of the Forest Grove Drive Reconstruction Project between Devils Glen Road and International Drive will re-open to thru traffic on Tuesday, December 12, 2017. 

The reconstruction of Forest Grove Drive from the west City limits to International Drive has been a two-year project made possible by an 80% federal / 20% City match federal aid award.  The existing two (2) lane sealcoat rural roadway section has been replaced by a three (3) lane concrete roadway with a two-way left turn lane, on-road bike lanes and a ten foot (10’) recreational trail on the south side.  The paving is wide enough to accommodate a total of four (4) travel lanes in the future if the traffic volumes warrant it. Remaining minor work will be completed as weather allows and potentially into the spring with no interruption of thru traffic.
