A construction project located near Main Street and 24th Street in east Philomath will impact traffic through the area this week during nighttime hours, the city of Philomath announced Monday.

The first phase of the Scott Lepman development project, which includes self-storage buildings and industrial flex space, has been authorized to conduct night work this week. The city permit is needed so the developer can install a water line across the highway.

The city permit allows the contractor to work between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. due to the Oregon Department of Transportation’s requirements that the work be performed at night to reduce the impact on traffic.

The contractor expects to begin work at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

There may be traffic delays and traffic may be reduced to one lane at times, the city said in a release.

Any questions about the night work permit should be directed to the Public Works director at 541-929-3579.
