Project Overview
The Highway 138 Corridor Solutions Study identified several current and future transportation problems on Highway 138 between Interstate 5 Exit 124 and Fulton Street and developed a range of conceptual solutions. Based on traffic, land use, socioeconomic and population data analysis; this study also determined that minor improvements on the existing corridor is unlikely to provide a solution that meets city and state traffic standards in the 20-year planning horizon.
 
The Highway 138 Corridor Solutions Study concluded that suitable solutions to the problems identified in the corridor will likely require the completion of an Environmental Assessment (Class 3 project under NEPA) to be eligible for funding through the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).  The Environmental Assessment process will build on the information gathered in Highway 138 Corridor Solutions Study and will conduct a more detailed analysis of the natural, social, cultural, financial and design impacts within the study area. Based on the information gathered and analyzed in the Highway 138 Corridor Solutions Study and during the Environmental Assessment process, FHWA will select a preferred alternative or will make a determination that significant impacts would occur and preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement would be required.
 
The Environmental Assessment process is currently underway, and will consider the conceptual alternatives determined to be potentially viable during the Highway 138 Corridor Solutions Study, in addition to other alternatives that might be developed or submitted during the Environmental Assessment process. Additional public input and involvement opportunities will occur throughout the duration of the Environmental Assessment process.
 
The purpose of the Highway 138 Corridor Environmental Assessment project is to address mobility, safety, connectivity, and multi-modal needs on Highway 138 between Interstate 5 Exit 124 and Fulton Street.
 
The project is located on Diamond Lake Boulevard (Highway 138) between Interstate 5 (I-5) exit 124 and Fulton Street in the city of Roseburg (the “Project”.) The project area is bounded by the NE Stephens Street/NE Winchester Street intersection on the north, SE Mosher Avenue on the south, I-5 on the west, and NE Fulton Street on the east. Highway 138 is on a one-way couplet on Washington and Oak streets through downtown Roseburg, follows Stephens Street north, then heads east on Diamond Lake Boulevard.
