OR 99E is a major north-south transportation route to and between the cities of Woodburn, Hubbard and Aurora. The corridor has historically been an important state highway connection for commuters and freight traffic travelling to Portland, Salem and points beyond. However, OR 99E also provides access to many commercial businesses and residences. The multiple roles that OR 99E performs---serving through traffic as well as providing local access to businesses and residents---can at times conflict with one another.
The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), in coordination with the cities of Woodburn, Hubbard, Aurora and Marion County, is working to address this through the OR 99E Woodburn to Aurora Corridor Segment Planning process. Through this planning process, ODOT, its local government partners, businesses and residents in the corridor segment, and other interested parties, are evaluating existing and future operational and safety issues in the OR 99E corridor to help determine strategies to best improve or preserve existing and future highway operations and safety.
ODOT has worked with a project management team, including the local agencies mentioned above, to develop a series of proposed improvements at specific locations in the study area. These proposals were reviewed at a public meeting in November 2012. In response to comments received from the public, we have revised or eliminated specific proposals. The next stage of the process is for the final recommendations to be combined into the draft plan document that will be reviewed with the cities and Marion County beginning in late summer 2013.
