Oregon 62 FEIS/ROD released for 30-day Notice of Availability

MEDFORD — The Final Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision for the Oregon 62: I-5 to Dutton Road is complete and ready for a 30-day Notice of Availability. The final document and Record of Decision from the Federal Highway Administration incorporates design changes and responses to public questions, which developed from the Draft EIS public comment period in fall 2012.
Estimated to cost $440 million, the project enhances mobility by increasing capacity and safety.
“The Oregon 62 corridor is a critical business connection for freight, tourism and commuters,” said ODOT Project Leader Dick Leever. “Oregon 62 currently exceeds capacity standards. Future growth is expected to significantly increase traffic volumes.”
Slated construction in 2014, the first two phases is estimated to cost $120 million and is funded by the Oregon Jobs and Transportation Act. The 4.5-mile expressway begins at a small directional interchange near Whittle Road, follows the east side of the Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport, passes over Vilas Road and connects back to Oregon 62 at a signal near Corey Road. Sidewalks and transit-related enhancements are planned for the existing Oregon 62 corridor.
The FEIS/ROD is available online at http://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/HWY/REGION3. CDs are available at no charge. Printed version is available for $110. Copies can be viewed for free at the following locations:

  • City of Medford Planning office, 200 South Ivy St., Room 240;
  • Jackson County (Medford) Library, 205 South Central Ave.;
  • Rogue Family Center, 3131 Ave. C, White City;
  • ODOT Rogue Valley office, White City, 100 Antelope Rd.; and,
  • Oregon State Library, 250 Winter St. NE, Salem.

The FEIS/ROD caps nine years of work by the project’s Citizens Advisory Committee, Project Development Team and public input. These two groups were comprised of local business and property owners along the corridor as well as local government representatives.
