I-5: Martin Creek to Anlauf Paving
Watch for intermittent lane closures after July 7
Although all travel lanes through the construction zone will be open during the Independence Day weekend, motorists should watch for intermittent lane closures on Interstate 5 between Drain and Cottage Grove (milepost 162-170) from July 7 to July 31.
Some nighttime ramp closures at Exit 162 (Drain/OR 38 junction) and Exit 163 (Curtin) will also be necessary due to paving work.
The southbound off-ramp at Exit 170 (south Cottage Grove) will remain closed until July 31. All northbound ramps will remain open during this construction phase.
Construction on the northbound lanes will begin after Labor Day and continue until mid-November.

This project will repair or replace much of the concrete road surface along a
seven-mile section of Interstate 5 between the south Cottage Grove
interchange (Exit 170) and the Oregon 38 junction (Exit 162).
- Location: I-5 milepost 162.2-169.2
- Construction budget: $20 million (estimate)

What is ODOT planning to do?
section of Interstate 5 between Martin Creek (milepost 169) and the Anlauf
interchange (Exit 162) links Eugene and Cottage Grove to the Oregon 38
(Umpqua Highway) junction. The road surface in this area dates back several
decades. Although it has held up remarkably well, the concrete is cracking
and vulnerable to ongoing drainage problems.
At the north end of
the project area, workers will dig out the existing highway to a depth of 3-4
feet, install a new rock base, and pour new 8-11” concrete travel lanes in
both northbound and southbound directions. In the rest of the work zone,
damaged concrete will be repaired or replaced and an additional 3” of asphalt
will be paved over the road surface to protect the concrete below.
includes paving 10 interstate ramps in the project area, repairing the Oregon
38 overcrossing at the Anlauf interchange, and replacing substandard median
barrier and guardrail.
begin in spring 2014 and continue until fall. Some additional work will be
scheduled for spring 2015.
How will traffic be affected during construction?
I-5 traffic will be
limited to one lane in each direction for most of the spring, summer and fall
of 2014. Some ramp closures will be necessary.
From May to August,
workers will rebuild the southbound lanes between Exit 170 (south Cottage
Grove) and Exit 162 (Drain). During this time, the northbound lanes will be
modified to carry one lane of traffic in each direction. Some southbound ramps
will be closed.
During the fall,
the process will be reversed. All traffic will be shifted into the southbound
lanes, with one lane in each direction, so that workers can rebuild the
northbound lanes. Some northbound ramps will be closed.
Work not completed
by Thanksgiving will resume after the holiday season, when weather is
favorable to construction.
ODOT will provide more information to the public and local media prior to and
