Jobs For Transportation Act (JTA) Section 64 Projects

Section 64 of the Jobs and Transportation Act (JTA) identified funding for 37 specific highway projects across Oregon, and funding for 12 local governments in eastern Oregon. Project information is shown first in a summarized format, then as specific project work is identified a more detailed project report is provided.

The dollar sum of all detailed projects may not equal the overall summary information due to not all the work having been scheduled, or costs changing as more project refinements are made. Additionally, these dollar amounts may not exactly match the amounts given in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) because federal STIP requirements differ from JTA's requirements.

U.S. Highway 26 at the Glencoe Road Interchange
Overall Project Work Description:

The U.S. 26 project at the Glencoe Road Interchange is located in the City of North Plains in Washington County. The project will improve safety and capacity of the interchange.

View an aerial photo of the project area.

The project, as originally developed in the Draft Interchange Area Management Plan several years ago, was estimated to cost $80 to $90 million.

ODOT has worked with the City of North Plains and Washington County to develop a design concept that meets the $32 million budget provided by the JTA. Project elements include:

  • Replacing the Glencoe Road bridge over U.S. 26 with a new, four-lane bridge, and improving vertical clearance
  • Lengthening and widening the U.S. 26 westbound exit ramp
  • Replacing the culvert on Glencoe Road to the north of the interchange with a new structure
  • Improving pedestrian and bicycle connections on the new bridge over U.S. 26
  • Improving intersections, including traffic signals, signing, striping, drainage and water quality


Benefit of Project:

The existing two-lane Glencoe Road over-crossing lacks adequate shoulders, turn lanes, and bicycle/ pedestrian accommodations. The most significant safety issue to be addressed is that the existing westbound off-ramp is not long enough to safely accommodate vehicles using the interchange, creating backups onto U.S. 26.

The U.S. 26 Glencoe Road Interchange project will serve the projected increase in traffic volumes, both from the adjacent City of North Plains and the larger regional vicinity, which includes the Cities of Hillsboro, Cornelius, and Forest Grove. The interchange is an important access point from U.S. 26 to these cities and the project will improve the capacity of the system and result in better mobility in the region.

The project will also contribute to economic development by supporting planned land use and industrial development in western Washington County.



Current Status:

Construction on this project has been underway since July 2012.

Interstate 84 at the 257th Interchange
Overall Project Work Description:


Interstate 84 at the 257th Interchange, located in the City of Troutdale in Multnomah County, is an important freeway connection to many industrial businesses at the eastern end of the Columbia industrial corridor. The project will support connections to this important employment area by improving safety and capacity in the I-84/257th interchange area.

In July 2009, work began to improve the east end of the I-84 Troutdale interchange (Exit 17). The project, which was funded by ODOT, Port of Portland, City of Troutdale and federal stimulus funds, added an additional turn lane for traffic headed east on South Frontage Road to 257th Drive/NW Graham Road (I-84, Exit 17) and was completed in December 2009.

Project elements funded by the JTA include:

  • widening and lengthening the I-84 eastbound exit ramp, and improving the intersection;
  • adding a third lane to South Frontage Road; and
  • improving the intersection at the I-84 westbound exit ramp and Graham Road, including adding a third lane to a portion of North Frontage Road.

Additional project elements will be designed with JTA funding. Construction of these additional project elements will depend on securing other funding, such as the Federal Transportation Reauthorization request for $28 million that ODOT, the Port of Portland and the City of Troutdale are supporting.



Benefit of Project:

The interchange experiences traffic backups on the I-84 eastbound exit ramp during afternoon peak hours. This is a significant safety concern as vehicles are forced to back up into the travel lanes of the interstate. A recent traffic study, specifically addressing the increased traffic generated from the newsly constructed FedEx ground distribution facility, forecasts that congestion in the area will soon worsen. This project will improve safety, reduce congestion and provide capacity for future development of the Port's industrial property north of I-84.



Current Status:

The immediate interchange improvements wrapped up in July 2012. Design for other elemements of the project to include removing the eixsisting I-84 bridges over Marine Drive and Graham Road and placing new bridges to provide over 17 feet of clearance under I-84 and improving the Marine Drive under crossing wrapped up in August 2013. Construction on this work started in March of 2014.

State Highway 212: Sunrise Corridor, Phase I, Units 1, 2 and 3
Overall Project Work Description:

The Clackamas Industrial Area is home to one of the state's busiest and most critical freight distribution centers. Community development and industrial expansion in the Sunrise Corridor are expected to grow significantly and the existing Oregon 212/224 corridor is incapable of handling this increased demand.

Since 1988, the east/west Sunrise Corridor has been identified as an essential connection from I-5 and I-205 to U.S. 26 (Mt. Hood Highway), and to central and eastern Oregon. After years of public involvement, community participation and environmental investigation, on February 23, 2011, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) signed a Record of Decision (ROD) providing the necessary federal clearances for construction of the identified improvements.

The Sunrise Jobs and Transportation Act Project is constructing a smaller phase of the larger Sunrise Corridor Preferred Alternative to address existing congestion and safety problems in the Oregon 212/224 corridor. The Sunrise JTA Project will construct a new road from I-205 at the Milwaukie Expressway to 122nd Avenue and some local roadway connections serving the Lawnfield Industrial District.

ODOT and Clackamas County developed the JTA project proposal in spring 2010 and hosted a public meeting in June 2010 to discuss the proposal, answer questions and take comments. ODOT held the first design open house on November 8, 2011.



Benefit of Project:

When complete, the project will reduce congestion, increase safety, and improve economic development opportunities and freight mobility.



Current Status:

Construction on this project started in the spring of 2013.

U.S. Highway 26 at the Shute Road Interchange, Phase I
Overall Project Work Description:

The U.S. Highway 26 at the Shute Road Interchange project is located in the City of Hillsboro in Washington County. Shute Road has been officially renamed Brookwood Parkway since the JTA was passed. This project will improve the U.S. 26 Brookwood Parkway (Helvetia) interchange by reducing congestion and increasing safety.

Project elements include:

  1. Constructing a new westbound U.S. 26 to southbound Brookwood Parkway exit loop ramp
  2. Reconstructing the westbound entrance ramp
  3. Providing an additional northbound travel lane on the Brookwood Parkway overcrossing and widening the structure to accommodate an additional southbound lane in the future
  4. Extending the northbound right-turn lane from Brookwood Parkway
  5. Providing enhanced bicycle and pedestrian accommodations on the Brookwood Parkway overcrossing


Benefit of Project:

The U.S. 26 Brookwood Parkway (Helvetia) interchange is a locally and regionally significant interchange along the U.S. 26 Sunset Corridor. This interchange is a primary entry point to regionally significant high-tech employment centers. The transportation challenge at this interchange is heavy traffic from the westbound U.S. 26 exit ramp to southbound Brookwood Parkway during morning peak hours, and heavy traffic northbound on Brookwood Parkway to eastbound U.S. 26 during afternoon peak hours.

The recent addition of the Evergreen and Helvetia planning areas into the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) is intended to bring approximately 850 acres of land for industrial development and is projected to employ 13,000 people. The primary focus of land use in the area is to provide sustainable “green energy” jobs. The U.S. 26 Brookwood Parkway (Helvetia) Interchange project will accommodate a full build out of the recent UGB expansion and support the development of state certified industrial sites and recently re-zoned high-tech industrial lands.

The project will provide better access to industrial lands, reduce congestion, and increase safety and economic development opportunities.



Current Status:

Wildish Construction started work on this project in early fall 2013. A project kick off celebration was held on Oct. 28, 2013.

Interstate 5 at the Interstate 205 Interchange
Overall Project Work Description:
The Interstate 5 at the Interstate 205 Interchange will improve the I-5/I-205 interchange in Tualatin.

ODOT built a full northbound auxiliary lane from the I-5/ Elligsen Road interchange to I-205 northbound that will allow vehicles to more efficiently enter I-5 from north Wilsonville and exit I-5 at I-205. With funding provided by the JTA, ODOT has designed the entire auxiliary lane. Current estimates indicate that ODOT will be able to construct the full auxiliary lane from the Elligsen Road interchange to the I-205 interchange.



Benefit of Project:

I-5, the West Coast’s main trade corridor, and I-205 are two of Oregon’s busiest freeways with more than 100,000 vehicles passing through the interchange each day. The I-5/I-205 interchange is also recognized as one of the Portland Metropolitan region’s worst congestion chokepoints.

When complete, the project will reduce congestion, improve safety and enhance freight mobility on I-5 and I-205.

U.S. Highway 26: 185th Avenue to Cornell Road
Overall Project Work Description:


The U.S. Highway 26: 185th Avenue to Cornell Road project is located on U.S. 26 between 185th Avenue and Cornell Road in Washington County and in the cities of Beaverton and Hillsboro. The project will improve the safety and capacity of U.S. 26.

The project will add an additional travel lane on U.S. 26 (Sunset Highway) in both directions between NW 185th Avenue and Cornell Road. Once complete, there will be three travel lanes in each direction from downtown Portland to NW 185th Avenue. The project will also widen the shoulders, add cable barrier in the center median, and upgrade signs.


Benefit of Project:

The U.S. 26 Sunset Highway Corridor is a designated freight route and is the primary corridor between regionally significant high-tech employment centers and the Portland Metropolitan area.

The existing section of the highway between NW 185th Avenue and Cornell Road will not serve the long-term capacity needs of the Sunset Highway Corridor. The project will address the anticipated growth in demand by adding an additional U.S. 26 travel lane in both directions from NW 185th Avenue to Cornell Road.

When complete, the project will improve safety, capacity and freight mobility.



Current Status:

Widening portion of this project is complete and new travel lanes were opened in fall 2011. However, work continues on adding electronic message signs, landscaping and interchange improvements nearby.

Interstate 205 and State Highway 213 at the Washington Street Interchange
Overall Project Work Description:
The Interstate 205 and State Highway 213 project is located at the Washington Street intersection and I-205 interchange in the City of Oregon City in Clackamas County. The project will bring safety and operational improvements to one of the state’s most congested corridors and one of I-205’s most traveled interchanges. Oregon City is the lead agency responsible for delivering the project.

The project will realign Washington Street to pass under Highway 213 just south of the existing railroad bridge. This improvement will eliminate the need for left-turns across the highway. Highway 213 will also be widened to accommodate a third northbound lane and dedicated right-turn lanes in both directions. In addition, Redland Road will be widened to create a dedicated right turn lane and two left turn lanes to Highway 213.



Benefit of Project:

The I-205/Oregon Highway 213 interchange is a locally and regionally significant interchange along I-205. Highway 213 provides access from the Interstate to the southeast metro region, including Oregon City and areas further south. While these areas are anticipated to grow quickly in the coming years, the I-205/OR 213 interchange is already at capacity.

The additional capacity gained by the I-205/ Highway 213 project will be partially used to support development of the Oregon City Regional Center a Metro 2040 designation given to signify an employment, cultural and residential center for approximately 100,000 residents.

The additional capacity will also be used to support development in past urban growth expansion around Oregon City in Clackamas County.

Current traffic studies reveal existing safety issues including backups on the interstate ramps and long traffic backups at nearby intersections. In addition, weaving (congestion that results from motorists trying to move to the right while other motorists are simultaneously trying to move to the left) and general congestion will worsen as additional development occurs in the area, unless improvements are made.



Current Status:

The contractor finished all work on this project in June 2013.

href="http://www.jughandleproject.com">http://www.jughandleproject.com) that will be updated throughout construction.

Note: The City's contractor has announced that the construction team expects to reach a major milestone in late March: installation of the new OR 213 bridge. The bridge is a key part of the design to improve safety and the flow of traffic on the congested stretch of highway near the I-205 interchange. To allow the contractor to install the bridge safely and quickly, ODOT will temporarily close all travel lanes on OR 213 between the northbound I-205 on/off ramps and the Washington Street/Clackamas River Drive intersection. The full closure is scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 22, 2012, and end by 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 27, 2012. A signed detour route will be in effect. Use of a rapid bridge construction process enables the contractor to keep all OR 213 travel lanes open in the daytime during all but four days of the nearly two-year construction project.

Interstate 84 at the Hood River Interchange
Overall Project Work Description:
The Interstate 84 at the Hood River Interchange project is located at the east end of Hood River at I-84 mile post 64.4 in Hood River County, in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. The project began as a part of the OTIA III State Bridge Delivery Program and consisted of the replacement of one bridge and mading cross-road improvements.

The project replaced the I-84 bridge at exit 64 over Button Bridge Road, which is the connector road to Oregon 35, and made safety improvements to the exit 64 interchange beneath the bridge. To reduce congestion and increase safety beneath the bridge, the project widened Button Bridge Road to five lanes with bike lanes in both directions and added a sidewalk to the east side of the roadway. Additionally, three traffic signals were added to Button Bridge Road: at the intersections of Marina Way and at the on- and off-ramps for eastbound and westbound I-84.


Benefit of Project:
Interstate 84 is one of the state’s economic lifelines. It carries much of Oregon’s commercial truck traffic. If ODOT did not repair or replace the I-84 bridge at Exit 64, the agency would have been forced to place weight limits on it, a restriction that would impair this vital freight corridor. Built in 1953, the original bridge was replaced to safely accommodate overweight permit vehicles and keep traffic moving along the I-84 corridor.


Current Status:
Additional landscaping/irrigation work delayed the completion of the project; however, construction is now complete.

State Highway 43 at the Sellwood Bridge Interchange
Overall Project Work Description:
The State Highway 43 at the Sellwood Bridge Interchange project is located in the City of Portland in Multnomah County. The Sellwood Bridge project will replace the existing bridge with a new structure and will improve the Highway 43 connection at the west end of the bridge.

A new Highway 43/Sellwood Bridge interchange, as shown in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Multnomah County’s project to replace the Sellwood Bridge, would consist of a signalized intersection at the west end of the bridge above the existing highway. Ramps from the signalized intersection will provide highway access to and from the new bridge and provide access to the River View Cemetery. The improved interchange is necessary to serve the expected increase in bicycle and pedestrian traffic directed through the interchange to the new bridge. Interchange improvements also include signalized crosswalks and bicyclist/pedestrian access to west-side destinations, including the Willamette Greenway Trail.


Benefit of Project:
The Sellwood Bridge has a very low structural rating, an ongoing landslide on the west approach ramps, poor existing bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and lack of seismic reinforcement. Construction of a new bridge necessitates improvements to the interchange. A new bridge will be built higher than the existing bridge, requiring reconstruction of the intersection on-ramps for cars, bicycles and pedestrians. Additional improvements may be needed to accommodate a future streetcar line.


Current Status:

State Highway 6 at U.S. Highway 101
Overall Project Work Description:
The State Highway 6 at U.S. Highway 101 project is located in Tillamook County where Oregon 6 and U.S. 101 come together in historic downtown Tillamook. The project will be designed to improve the safety and operations of these two highways as they converge.

Oregon 6 provides a connection for freight and tourist traffic from the Portland Metropolitan Area to the Oregon Coast, and U.S. 101 is a scenic route that provides a north and south connection for the entire Oregon Coast.

In historic downtown Tillamook, both highways have a dual function as main streets. Oregon 6 follows the 1st and 3rd street couplet, and U.S. 101 follows Main and Pacific Avenues. These narrow streets and intersections were not designed to carry the large volume of traffic that uses these streets today.

This causes safety problems for vehicles and pedestrians, and it causes congestion, particularly with truck traffic year round and a high volume of tourist traffic in the summer months.

The project began with a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) study that identified a preferred alternative to move traffic between U.S. 101 and Oregon 6. It will also include construction of the resulting approved solution from the NEPA study. ODOT estimates that the project cost will be met by current funding resources.



Benefit of Project:
The project will be designed to improve the safety and operations of these two highways as they converge. The project will also make the downtown intersections more efficient for those traveling through downtown and safer for everyone.


Current Status:
The NEPA process concluded with an approved solution. Design is currently underway. Right-of-way acquisition is expected to begin in early 2014 and continue through 2015. Construction is expected to begin in mid 2015 and be finished late 2017.

State Highway 99W: Newberg and Dundee Bypass, Phase 1
Overall Project Work Description:
The State Highway 99W: Newberg and Dundee Bypass, Phase 1 project is located near the Oregon 99W corridor, where the highway passes through Newberg and Dundee in eastern Yamhill County. The project will provide an alternate route for local commuter and freight traffic around the congestion in Dundee and south Newberg, reducing the number of vehicles using Oregon 99W. The HB 2001 project is being accomplished by two separate projects: Newberg-Dundee Improvement Project #1 and OR18: Newberg-Dundee Bypass.

The project is expected to construct a two-lane highway from Oregon 219, near Newberg, to Oregon 99W, southwest of Dundee.


Benefit of Project:

The goal is to reduce traffic congestion and improve regional and local transportation along the Oregon 99W corridor in the Newberg and Dundee area.

Oregon 99W serves as the “main street” for both Newberg and Dundee. It also connects the cities to the Portland Metropolitan Area, McMinnville and the Oregon Coast. Because this highway is the most direct route between the Willamette Valley and coastal communities, tourist traffic has steadily increased. Weekday commuters also use the highway to travel between Yamhill County and the Portland Metropolitan Area.

All of these demands combine to create severe congestion; lines of vehicles often stretch for over a mile in both directions. Congestion and travel delays have reached unacceptable levels for those who live, work in or travel through Newberg, Dundee and the surrounding areas. This project will alleviate congestion by adding highway capacity.



Current Status:

The Contractor (LaDuke Construction ) has installed over 600,000 feet of wick drains. The wick drains will help speed the settlement of the ground, as the embankments are built. They are in the process of building several major embankments out of stone embankment material.

As part of their contract, they have also started construction of one of the bridges for the project. The bridge is necessary to allow the next phase of construction to occur primarily on the new alignment, and should help reduce the amount of truck traffic on the local streets of Dundee.

On the south side of Newberg, the contractor has built the sub grade of the new alignment from OR 219 to a large valley at the south end of the Sportsman Airpark runway. A large multiplate culvert has been installed, and embankment built to bury it. Inclement weather stopped the progress on that portion of the job until next spring. Farther to the southwest, the contractor is still working on other large embankments made of stone material, and will continue through the winter as weather allows.

Interstate 5 at the State Highway 214 Interchange
Overall Project Work Description:
The Woodburn Interchange Project is located on I-5 at the intersection with OR 214 and OR 219 in Woodburn, Marion County, Oregon. The interchange accesses OR 214 east of I-5 to Silverton, Mt Angel and Molalla, and OR 219 west of I-5 to St. Paul and Newberg. The project will improve traffic flow and safety in the interchange area, add a transit facility, and promote economic development in Woodburn and the surrounding area.

The project includes improvements designed to safely accommodate multi-modal travel needs for the next 20 years:
  • Reconstruct the interchange to a partial cloverleaf with loop ramps;
  • Lengthen the ramps to meet current design standards;
  • Widen the existing over-crossing structure (bridge) to the north;
  • Raise the profile of the bridge approaches in order to improve sight lines;
  • Widen Oregon 214 and 219 equally or northerly of the existing centerline, depending on the segment;
  • Provide new 6-foot sidewalks with an additional 6 foot-wide landscaped buffer between the sidewalk and the curb;
  • Provide one (1) bicycle lane in each direction along Oregon 214 and 219;
  • Add a raised median to control turning movements;
  • Modify access for local city streets at Oregon Way, Evergreen Road and Lawson Avenue;
  • Construct a Transit Facility (Park & Ride) and extend Evergreen Road north of Oregon 214 for neighborhood access to the public transit lines listed above;
  • Construct the gateway design package approved by the Woodburn City Council on June 11, 2012.


Benefit of Project:
Woodburn's interchange was built in the 1950's when I-5 was originally constructed in Oregon. However, the interchange has had no significant improvements since 1975 when I-5 was widened from four to six lanes from Woodburn to Salem. When upgrades to the interchange were completed in 1975, roadside development near the interchange was minimal and the City of Woodburn was more oriented around OR 99E to the east of I-5. Since then, traffic volume around the interchange has increased exponentially, becoming more than the once rural interchange can accommodate, creating delays and limiting the full economic potential that exists for the region. The proposed project will improve traffic flow and safety, and promote economic development.


Current Status:
The Contract was awarded to K&E Excavating in July, 2013. To date, the Contractor has completed the Evergreen Road and Transit Facility portions of the project. The park & ride is in operation. Over the next couple of months, the EV charging station infrastructure will be completed and one level 3 quick charge station should be in operation. In addition, the Contractor has completed the pile foundations for the bridge widening; all temporary ramps are now in operation, including temporary traffic signals at the intersection of the ramps with OR214 & OR219; and the MSE wall that runs parallel to the southbound off-ramp. Upcoming work includes, concrete placement for the bridge widening foundations; starting construction of the OR219 widening from Woodland Ave. to Willow Ave., including the sound wall; and the turn-on of the temporary traffic signal at Woodland Ave.

Interstate 5 at Beltline Highway, Units 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7
Overall Project Work Description:
The Interstate 5 at Randy Papé Beltline, Units 3-7 project is located in Lane County, in the cities of Eugene and Springfield, at the intersection of Interstate 5, mile post 195.45 and Randy Papé Beltline (OR 569). The phased project will correct deficiencies to enable the interchange to safely accommodate travel demands 20 years into the future. The HB 2001 project is being accomplished by two separate projects: I-5 @ Beltline - Unit 3 and I-5 @ Beltline - Unit 4.

The modernization project has been divided into smaller sections (units) to make it easier to construct parts of the project as funding becomes available. Unit 1 was completed in late 2009, and Unit 2 was completed in the Summer of 2011. Units 5, 6 and 7 have been integrated within Units 3 and 4 for construction in 2013 and 2015, respectively. Construction for Unit 3 is well underway, as is design for Unit 4. Unit 3 was awarded to K & E Excavating Inc. on January 30, 2013.

Improvements under contruction in Unit 3 are:

  1. A new I-5 southbound to westbound Beltline off-ramp.
  2. A new I-5 southbound to eastbound Beltline off-ramp.
  3. A new westbound Beltline to southbound I-5 on-ramp.
  4. A new Beltline Bridge over I-5.
  5. And base construction and structures for a new multi-use path to connect south of the interchange to north of the interchange. Path is to open upon completion of Unit 4 in 2016.

The planned improvements being proposed for Unit 4 are:

  1. A new eastbound Beltline auxiliary lane from Coburg Road to southbound I-5 on ramp;
  2. A new southbound I-5 auxiliary lane from Beltline Hwy to I-105;
  3. A new eastbound Beltline to northbound I-5 on-ramp, including a structure over I-5
  4. A new Harlow Bridge (replacement)
  5. Final stages of the Multi Use path that will be partially constructed in Unit 3
  6. A soundwall south of Beltline and east of Coburg Road
  7. A soundwall west of I-5, south of Harlow Road and north of I-105
  8. Noise studies for the replacement of the Harlow Bridge and noise mitigation as warranted



Benefit of Project:

The additional work to be done in Units 3 and 4 will continue to modernize the interchange, which serves interstate, regional, and local traffic to the surrounding residential and commercial centers. The units will continue to correct deficiencies to enable the interchange to safely accommodate travel demands 20 years into the future.

The interchange is located at the northern boundary of Oregon’s second largest metropolitan center. Originally constructed in 1968, where dairy farms and pastures once occupied much of the area, today the land is being developed for residential, retail commercial use, interstate traveler services and industrial centers providing regional employment. The once rural interchange cannot accommodate the increase in traffic, creating congestion, delays and safety problems.



Current Status:
I-5 @ Beltline Unit 3 was awarded to K & E Excavating Inc. in January and is currently under construction. It is programmed to be completed in late 2014. Construction for Unit 4 is expected to begin in 2015, upon the completion of Unit 3. In January, 2014, a Value Engineering (VE) study was completed resulting in some cost saving recommendations that are now being evaluated and considered by the project development team. At the request of elected state representatives, and in the spirit of the JTA's emphasis on Practical Design, ODOT conducted a Value Engineering study of Unit 4 to reevaluate the design elements for cost savings and reduced impacts on right of way and utilities.

Explanation of Project Changes:
Cost: The estimated project cost went down due to a design change during the design phase. An adjustment to the alignment of southbound I-5 to westbound Beltline ramp resulted in the elimination of two structures from the project. This resulted in a decrease in the estimated cost. Some of the savings from this will be used to complete Unit 4. Fill can be used in place of one structure and a new take-off point eliminated the need for the other.  11/9/2012

Beltline Highway at Delta Highway
Overall Project Work Description:
The Beltline Highway at Delta Highway project is located in Lane County. Following analysis, ramp meters were recommended at four locations to alleviate congestion and unsafe conditions in the Beltline Highway corridor through Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).

ITS is the application of advanced technology to address transportation problems. ITS makes use of advanced communication and computer technology to address these problems and enhance the movement of people and goods.

The project was anticipated to analyze, design, and construct ITS solutions along the Beltline Highway corridor. The project also looked at ways to reduce speed using ITS solutions. ODOT, in collaboration with the City of Eugene and Lane County advanced the planning study recommendation of placing ramp metering at Beltline Hwy on ramps from River Road and River Avenue eastbound, and at Beltline Hwy on ramps from Green Acres and Coburg Roads westbound. The ramp designs were completed in the fall of 2012 and the project work was awarded to Lantz Electric Inc. of Eugene. Construction was completed at the four recommended locations in June of 2013. A ramp meter is a traffic signal on a ramp that controls the rate vehicles enter a freeway facility. Solutions other than ramp metering, such as traffic messages and ways to reduce speed were considered in the analysis. Kittelson and Associates Inc., under a separate contract, will do performance evaluations of the four ramp meter locations to determine how effectively they are reducing congestion.



Benefit of Project:
The Beltline Highway (OR 569) carries the majority of traffic crossing the Willamette River and connecting western Lane County to Interstate 5. Traffic moving onto and off of Beltline Highway between River Road and Coburg Road is slow and congested during busy travel times. While a planning study is underway to assess deficiencies on Beltline Highway between River Road and Coburg Road and recommend long-term solutions, any projects to address the deficiencies through new infrastructure will take several years to develop and fund. In the meantime, ITS solutions are expected to ease congestion by using the existing infrastructure as efficiently as possible. View a video comparison of the Beltline Highway with and without ramp meters.


Current Status:
Analyses for ramp metering on Randy Pape' Beltline and variable speed analysis for Delta Highway have been completed. Construction of the ramp metering at Green Acres Road and Coburg Road westbound ramps and River Road and River Avenue eastbound ramps to Beltline Rd were recommended. Design and construction are completed.

Interstate 5 at Kuebler Road, Phase I
Overall Project Work Description:
The Interstate 5 at Kuebler Road, Phase I project is located at the interchange of Interstate 5 at Kuebler Boulevard and will upgrade the existing interchange to support the area’s planned expansion.

The project will upgrade the existing interchange by adding a westbound to southbound loop ramp and modifying an eastbound to southbound ramp and the existing southbound off ramp.


Benefit of Project:
Kuebler Boulevard is a major east-west corridor for the City of Salem, and the interchange provides a critical link to Interstate 5. The Mill Creek Corporate Center (MCCC), located northeast of the interchange, is a partnership between the State of Oregon and the City of Salem to create a major employment center on agricultural land previously owned by the Oregon Department of Corrections in southeast Salem. The interchange does not have sufficient capacity to support additional vehicle and freight traffic that will be generated by the redevelopment. This project will improve capacity.


Current Status:

At its December 19, 2012 meeting, the Oregon Transportation Commission approved moving ahead with the first ever unsolicited proposal from a private entity that would modify the planned interchange project. In November, 2013 the ODOT Director decided to continue to examine the unsolicited proposal. The ODOT project will remain on hold until that examination is complete and a decision is made regarding which Interchange design will move to construction.

As a part of the interchange project, a noise study was conducted which concluded that a sound wall was needed. Due to the time required to acquire right of way and avoid a delay to the interchange project it was decided to make this a stand-alone project. Funding from the interchange project was moved to fund this project. Overall project (interchange and sound wall) increased $645,189. Additional funding came from a Discretionary Program award and reduced anticipated interchange cost.  9/18/2012

Interstate 5 at Kuebler Road, Phase II (Mill Creek)
Overall Project Work Description:
The Interstate 5 at Kuebler Road, Phase II (Mill Creek) Project will improve 3,750 feet of Aumsville Highway SE within the Mill Creek Corporate Center (MCCC) boundary to a three-lane section including a center turn lane and bicycle and pedestrian facilities. In addition, the intersection at Kuebler Boulevard SE will be expanded requiring modifications to the traffic signal.

The Mill Creek Corporate Center (MCCC )is a partnership between the State of Oregon and the City of Salem to create a major employment center on agricultural land previously owned by the Oregon Department of Corrections in southeast Salem.

The City has adopted the necessary comprehensive plan and zoning designations to permit development of the agricultural property and has created an urban renewal area (URA) to assist with the completion of infrastructure improvements necessary to support the development.

The MCCC is approximately 650 acres in size, making it Oregon's largest industrial park along the Interstate 5 corridor. Over 200 acres of the park are already certified as a State industrial, "shovel ready" site. Development on a portion of the property is underway. When completed, the MCCC is expected to:

  • Create more than 5,000 “family wage” jobs in the MCCC;
  • Generate hundreds of millions in private investment in the local economy;
  • Transfer 650 acres from public to private ownership; and
  • Create over 100 acres of wetlands and open space.

Access to I-5 is provided by Kuebler Boulevard SE. The URA has identified several transportation improvements that are necessary to provide an appropriate level of access to I-5. Within the MCCC area, Aumsville Highway SE is a major east-west route providing direct access to the property east of its intersection with Kuebler Boulevard SE. The existing Aumsville Highway SE is a substandard two-lane street with roadside ditches. It does not have sufficient existing capacity to support additional vehicular and freight traffic that will be generated by redevelopment.



Benefit of Project:
These improvements will provide safe access to future tenants, employees, and users of the MCCC. The project will have the ancillary benefit of improving access and safety for major public facilities in the vicinity including the Marion County Jail, Department of Public Safety Standards and Training Center, and Corban University.


Current Status:

Construction of the street improvements was completed on November 14, 2013. The project is now in the six-month plant establishment period which will be completed in June, 2014.

State Highway 42, County Line Curves
Overall Project Work Description:
The Oregon 42, County Line Curves project is located in the segment of the Coos Bay-Roseburg Highway (OR 42) between Coos and Douglas counties. The project is intended to improve safety through this remote, narrow section of the highway and improve mobility for trucks and passenger vehicles between Interstate 5 and the southern Oregon Coast. The project has been combined with KN 17468 (Remote-Slater Paving) to better coordinate work in the same general area.

The Oregon 42, County Line Curves project will address safety and mobility by way of curve reduction, scaling rock fall locations, and widening shoulders. The entire county line curve segment stretches from mile point 41.0 to mile point 46.0. However, straightening the entire segment would cost more than $300 million and require several new bridges and significant rock cuts and retaining walls. The current project focuses on a shorter section, between mile points 43.6 to 46.0, and will implement fixes within that section as funding allows. The project has also been combined with the Remote-Slater Paving project KN 17468).


Benefit of Project:
Oregon 42 is the primary route between the South Coast and southbound Interstate 5. As a designated freight route, it provides access between the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay and I-5, the West Coast’s major trade corridor. The sharp curves and rock fall though the segment lead to frequent crashes the crash rate on this route is approximately three times that of other rural Oregon highways. This project will be the first step in addressing the curves through the county line segment.


Current Status:
The project is scheduled to let in March 2014. Construction will start in April or May 2014 and is scheduled to be completed by fall 2014.

State Highway 62: Corridor Solution, Phase II
Overall Project Work Description:
The State Highway 62: Corridor Solution, Phase II project is located in Jackson County. This Phase will include a two-to-four lane bypass from Oregon 62 near the Poplar Drive/Bullock Road intersection to a terminus north of Vilas Road

The OR 62: Corridor Solution, Unit II project is located in Jackson County. This project of statewide significance will increase the capacity and improve the safety and air quality on OR 62 from Poplar Drive east to White City. Unit II will include a four lane bypass from OR 62 near the Poplar Drive/Bullock Road intersection to a terminus south of White City. This Unit will allow through traffic to use the expressway to avoid the Delta Waters/OR 62 intersection, which is currently experiencing severe congestion, and will include an overcrossing of Vilas Road. This section of the corridor also has a higher than normal crash rate. Staff worked with the projects' Citizens Advisory Committee and Project Development Team for direction to extend the northern terminus as far north as possible to maximize the public investment and minimize the impacts to property owners and businesses. The northern terminus will be in the vicinity of the existing OR 62 and Agate Road intersection. The project has been divided into two phases. Phase 1 will extend from Poplar Drive to E. Vilas Road to the north. Phase 2 will extend from E. Vilas Road to Dutton Road in White City.



Benefit of Project:

This project of statewide significance will increase the capacity and improve the safety and air quality on Oregon 62 from Poplar Drive east to White City.

Oregon 62 has an expressway designation from mile point 0 to 10 and is classified as a state highway and freight route from mile point 0 to the intersection of OR 140, at mile point 6.03.

This section of highway is approaching capacity from the I-5 interchange to the White City area. An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is being completed which will define the project corridor and preferred alternative for the project. Development along the proposed corridor is currently occurring at a rapid pace.



Current Status:

The project has been separated into two phases due to the need to prepare a land use goal exception (EFU) for the northerly portion of the project (Phase 2). The Final Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision for the OR 62: I-5 to Dutton Road has been approved and signed by FHWA. The JTA phase of this project is scheduled to go to construction in early 2014. Phase 1 (Poplar-Vilas) is scheduled to let in March 2014 and construction will begin shortly after. Construction for Phase 2 (Vilas-Dutton) is scheduled to begin in spring 2015

Explanation of Project Changes:
Cost: The toal cost of the project has increased due to additional R/W and utility costs. Total cost is $67,545,000. The JTA portion of the work matches the original JTA budget.  11/6/2013
CMR was approved on 3/27/12 to decrease KN 17188 by $3,200,000 in the RW Phase and by $4,300,000 in the CON Phase. The adjusted budget has adequate funding remaining to cover the estimated costs for KN17188. These funds were transferred to KN13994 for an increase in the RW Phase of $5,400,000 and to add a UR Phase of $2,100,000. RW funds will cover anticipated costs so the necessary right of way could be acquired for the project. UR phase will cover the anticipated reimbursable utility costs.  4/24/2012
Budget reduced to $60.545.000 due to an accounting correction.  6/23/2011
For KN 13994, the project was phased and divided into two KNs (13994 and 17188) to reflect the phasing. Total cost for both phases is $119,845,000 ($100 M JTA). The total cost of the project has decreased by about $2 million because we split OTIA money from the project to the EIS for this work (KN13226).  3/9/2011
- - -
Completion Date: While the JTA portion of the budget has not changed, the total project cost has increased to $125,563,278. The total budget has increased because we are now reflecting the EIS work that is part of this project (we have added a third Key # to this project to cover this work). The increase in cost is being funded by OTIA and other Region funds (not JTA funds). Our JTA funding is still $100M, the additional funds are mostly OTIA.   1/2/2014
Construction completion orignally planned for 2014. Current construction completion is now planned for late 2015 due to delays in right-of-way acquisition, environmental permits, and the Environmental Impact Statement.  1/28/2013
The bid date for Phase 1 (KN 13994) has been moved to 1/15/2013 to account for additional FHWA FFO review. The bid date for Phase 2 (KN 17118) has been moved to 8/31/14 to address resource balancing issues.  1/9/2013
The bid date for Phase 1 one been moved out to November 21, 2013 because (1) the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Record of Decision (ROD) will not be completed until late spring, early summer of 2013 and (2) right-of-way acquisition has been delayed due to the necessity of acquiring additional easements related to utilities relocations. We also will the goal exception completed for the northerly portion of the project (Phase 2) before the regulating agencies will approve the permits.  10/31/2012
The project schedule has slipped due to several issues as follows: 1. Due to resource requirements the Tech Center did not feel that they had adequate resources to work on both the Bypass and Fern Valley projects concurrently. The time required to complete the contract and contract negotiations for the design contract with the consultant has resulted in pushing the bid-let date out. 2. There have also been several design issues that needed to be worked out prior to turning the project ove  2/16/2011

Interstate 5 at the Fern Valley Road Interchange
Overall Project Work Description:
The Fern Valley Road Interchange is located in Phoenix. This project includes replacing the existing I-5 and Fern Valley Road interchange and replacing the Bear Creek Bridge west of the interchange.

The continuing growth in Phoenix and southeast Medford and the large volume of trucks using the interchange is causing traffic to backup onto Interstate 5. The Fern Valley Road Interchange project includes replacing the existing I-5 and Fern Valley Road Interchange and replacing the Bear Creek Bridge west of the interchange. It will also widen Fern Valley Road to five lanes from its intersection of OR 99 to where it merges with North Phoenix Road and realigning and widening North Phoenix Road to five lanes at its intersection with South Phoenix Road. There will also be minimal improvements on OR 99 to include bicycle facilities and widening of Bolz Road between OR 99 and Fern Valley Road to handle the east bound traffic from OR 99.



Benefit of Project:

The project will increase the capacity of the interchange, improve mobility, and improve safety.

The Fern Valley Interchange serves as a regionally significant interchange for the Rogue Valley and is the main link between the I-5 corridor and the City of Phoenix. The interchange is being put under pressure by continuing growth in Phoenix and southeast Medford. This continuing growth and the large volume of trucks using the interchange is causing traffic on the off-ramps to back up onto the freeway. With limited sight distance on the overcrossing structure and heavy traffic on Fern Valley Road there are not enough gaps for the traffic to turn onto the ramps, so vehicles make unsafe turns.



Current Status:

The project was let in November 2013. Construction work is underway and is scheduled to be complete in fall 2016.

Interstate 5 Sutherlin Truck Climbing Lanes
Overall Project Work Description:
The Interstate 5 Sutherlin Truck Climbing Lanes project is located on Sutherlin Hill and Rice Hill in Douglas County. The project will add a southbound climbing lane dedicated to trucks and other slow moving vehicles at Sutherlin Hill and Rice Hill in Douglas County.

The Interstate 5 Sutherlin truck climbing lanes project is located on Sutherlin Hill and Rice Hill in Douglas County. The project is designed to improve freeway operations by providing climbing lanes for trucks and other slow vehicles facing challenges on the steep grades. The project will add a southbound and northbound climbing lane dedicated to trucks and other slow moving vehicles at Sutherlin Hill and and a southbound climbing lane at Rice Hill in Douglas County. It will also widen the outside shoulder to allow it to be used as intended for disabled or emergency vehicles. The project is being combined with an Interstate Maintenance paving project which will be constructed northbound and southbound between mile points 136.66 and 154.88.



Benefit of Project:

The project is designed to improve freeway operations by providing climbing lanes for trucks and other slow vehicles facing challenges on the steep grades.

Interstate 5 is the West Coast’s major trade corridor and one of the top freight routes in the nation. As it passes through Douglas, Josephine, and Jackson counties in Southern Oregon, I-5 travels through rugged mountain terrain with steep grades. Trucks traveling on I-5 in Southern Oregon are slowed down significantly as they travel up these steep grades, often to 20 miles per hour or less.

This causes safety problems and congestion, particularly when trucks pass other trucks or use the highway shoulder to crawl up the mountains. ODOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have identified the need for truck climbing lanes at multiple locations in Southern Oregon. The cost of addressing all the needs exceeds $100 million. ODOT has additional segments of climbing lanes planned for in the STIP and has requested a federal earmark for additional segments.



Current Status:

The project construction is complete.

Interstate 5 Sexton truck climbing lanes
Overall Project Work Description:

The Interstate 5 truck climbing lanes project encompasses three mountain passes in southern Douglas County and northern Josephine County. The project is designed to improve freeway operations by providing climbing lanes for trucks and other slow vehicles facing challenges on the steep grades.

The Interstate 5 truck climbing lanes project encompasses three mountain passes in southern Douglas County and northern Josephine County. The project is designed to improve freeway operations by providing a climbing lane for trucks and other slow vehicles facing challenges on the uphill section of Sexton pass. The additional lane will allow the shoulder to be used as intended for disabled or emergency vehicles and will address safety and operational problems at these locations. The current project will gather initial design data on all three passes and construct the climbing lane in the northbound direction on Sexton Summit. Lanes will be constructed on the other passes as future funding allows. Project includes interstate maintenance paving work (non-JTA funding) from MP 81.5-67-1.



Benefit of Project:

I-5 is the West Coast's major trade corridor and one of the top freight routes in the nation. As it passes through Douglas, Josephine, and Jackson counties in southern Oregon, I-5 travels through rugged mountain terrain with steep grades. Trucks traveling on I-5 in southern Oregon are slowed down significantly as they travel up these steep grades, often to 20 miles per hour or less. This causes safety problems and congestion, particularly when trucks pass other trucks or use the highway shoulder to crawl up the mountains. ODOT and the Federal Highway Administration have identified the need for truck climbing lanes at multiple locations in southern Oregon. The cost of addressing all the needs exceeds $100 million. ODOT will continue seeking funds for additional climbing lanes in Southern Oregon and will program projects in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program when available.



Current Status:

The Sexton Mt. climbing lane has been constructed and is open to traffic. Work on the related interstate maintenance project will be stopped over the winter and will be completed by August 2014.

Interstate 84 at the U.S. Highway 97 Interchange
Overall Project Work Description:

This project will replace the US 97 bridges over Interstate 84 and the Union Pacific Railroad, and widen the US 97 roadway from one lane in each direction to two lanes in each direction plus a center median. The acceleration lane for the westbound I-84 on ramp will be extended and all the interchange ramps will be realigned and widened to better accommodate the volume and size of the vehicles using this interchange. An auxiliary lane will also be included along southbound US 97 from the Celilo-Wasco Spur/Biggs-Rufus Frontage Road/US 97 (Biggs Jct.) intersection south to the Spanish Hollow Creek Bridge. Both ramp terminals and the Biggs Jct. intersection will be signalized and improvements to pedestrian safety at Biggs Jct. intersection will be provided by installing striped crosswalks and a pedestrian refuge island at the southeast corner of the intersection.

The scope of the project was expanded to include replacement of approximately five and a half miles of substandard median barrier on either side of the I-84/US 97 interchange. This work will be funded by federal dollars.



Benefit of Project:

Interstate 84 at U.S. 97 (Biggs) Interchange is a major hub for transportation of freight by truck, as well as the intermodal connection point for the transfer of wheat from trucks on the highway to barges on the Columbia River. The interchange ramps and intersections are in a very tight area, such that the interchange cannot accommodate the majority of over-sized wind-tower loads that continue to be delivered to wind turbine projects in this region, causing costly out-of-direction travel. Biggs Junction, located immediately south of the interchange, has also experienced increased commercial development catering to highway traffic.

Traffic studies performed by the Oregon Department of Transportation indicate that if no improvements are made to this intersection, the consequence of high volumes of heavy truck traffic westbound will cause the congestion of vehicles to back-up onto the mainline of I-84. Traffic counts and vehicle classifications show that over 40% of the vehicles in the area are large trucks.

Because of the heavy truck traffic circulating throughout the project area and the existing restrictive ramp and intersection space, left and right-turns for vehicles from the off-ramps are contributing to high congestion and back-up problems. Intersections at the ramps are narrow and heavy vehicles turning onto US 97 cannot stay within the correct lanes, creating safety concerns at these stop-sign controlled intersections. Because these maneuvers require “gaps” in traffic from either direction, it is most likely the single largest contributor to the existing back-up problem on the I-84 eastbound off ramp.



Current Status:
The contract went out for bid in March 2013 and construction began in July 2013. The project is to be completed in May 2015.

U.S. Highway 97: Crooked River Bridge to Redmond
Overall Project Work Description:
The U.S. 97: Crooked River Bridge to Redmond project is located in Deschutes County at the north end of Redmond and through Terrebonne. The project provides pavement preservation and safety and access improvements, including complete curb/sidewalk/drainage swale improvements through Terrebonne.

The project paved five miles of U.S. 97 from the Crooked River Bridge to the Redmond Reroute. The project also widened substandard shoulders and improved intersection safety along US 97 at NW Wimp Way, NW Lower Bridge Way, and Barberry Lane. Finally, it relocated or closed several private drives on US 97 between NW Wimp Way and the south end of Terrebonne and improved pedestrian safety in Terrebonne by construction of curbs, gutters and sidewalks.


Benefit of Project:

U.S. 97 is a critical part of the state’s transportation system and is generally classified as an “Expressway.” U.S. 97 carries a high volume of freight and tourist traffic to and from the Washington and California borders. It is also an important highway for local commuter traffic.

Keeping roads in good condition and providing for safe travel are critical parts of the Oregon Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) mission. On “Expressways” and major freight corridors like U.S. 97, vehicles are generally traveling at high speeds. There are multiple intersections along the stretch of U.S. 97 north of Terrebonne that often cause a mixture of conflicting fast and slow traffic, which has been a safety issue for both travelers on U.S. 97 and people entering or exiting the highway. In addition, this five mile section of U.S. 97 was rutting and beginning to break apart, with potholes and de-lamination (where layers of the pavement begin separating). Such conditions allow water and ice to collect on the road surface, causing slippery road conditions and a serious safety issue, where potholes and de-lamination increase the rate of pavement degradation as well as presenting a safety hazard.



Current Status:
The project was completed December 2009.

State Highway 140: Klamath Falls to the Nevada State Line
Overall Project Work Description:
The State Highway 140: Klamath Falls to the Nevada State Line projects are located in Klamath and Lake Counties. The projects will realign or straighten curves and widen the highway and shoulders on multiple segments of Oregon 140. One project will also install a new traffic signal at the end of the eastbound off-ramp on Oregon 140 at Washburn Way, and replace a signal pole at the intersection of Oregon 140 and Oregon 39.

OR140 @ Washburn Way (Klamath Falls) - shown in the past as "OR 140/OR 39 Intersection Improvements (Klamath Falls)" and "OR 140: Signal Improvement (Klamath Falls)"
The OR 140 @ Washburn Way Project will install a traffic signal at the end of the east bound off ramp of Oregon 140 and Washburn Way. This work will eliminate capacity deficiencies within the "last mile" that will make it easier for industrial land to be developed north of the interchange. The original scope of the OR 140/OR 39 Intersection Improvements (Klamath Falls) Project was scaled back and now only includes the replacement of a signal pole at this intersection, which is being included in the OR 140 @ Washburn Way Project.

OR 140: Ritter Road – Deer Run Road (Bly Mountain) Project (milepost 25.17 and 34.43)
The project will straighten curves, widen the roadway and shoulders, repave the 9.4-mile segment, remove obstacles in the clear zone (the area beyond the edge of the highway that allows a driver to stop safely or regain control of a vehicle that leaves the roadway), and upgrade guard rail and signage.

OR 140: Beatty Curves Project (milepost 41.70 – 42.70)
The project will straighten curves, widen the roadway and shoulders, remove obstacles in the clear zone, install new or upgraded guard rail and upgrade signs.

OR 140: Warner Curve Project (milepost 20.8 to 21.23)
The project will realign curves, widen shoulders, upgrade guard rail and signing, and install a box culvert in Parsnip Creek to enhance fish passage.

OR 140 Corridor Improvements (shown before as "OR 140 Curve Corrections (MP43-45)"
This project will improve horizontal and/or vertical deficiencies to allow unrestricted freight movement, and improve the operational and safety functionality of this corridor.



Benefit of Project:

Oregon 140 is an important part of the State’s transportation system in south central Oregon. It is a major truck route for freight from the Oregon coast to Nevada. Keeping roads in good condition and providing for safe travel are critical parts of the Oregon Department of Transportation’s mission.

The sharp curves limit the length of trucks that can use this portion of Oregon 140. There have been a number of crashes in the area including some fatalities and serious injuries. The sharpness of the curve and excessive travel speeds seem to be common elements in the crashes. The long-term goal is to correct these sharp curves so the length restriction can be removed. This overall project is comprised of Six discrete projects.



Current Status:

OR 140 @ Washburn Way (Klamath Falls) - The project was completed in October 2012.

OR 140: Warner Curve Project - The project was completed in November 2010.

OR 140: Beatty Curves Project -The project was completed in November 2010.

OR 140: Ritter Road – Deer Run Road (Bly Mountain) Project - The project bid date is scheduled for 2014 with construction taking 2-3 years.

OR 140 Corridor Improvements - Specific project locations will be identified in mid-2014.

Murphy Road at the U.S. Highway 97 Interchange
Overall Project Work Description:
The U.S. 97 at Murphy Road project is located in Deschutes County at the south end of Bend. The overall estimate of transportation improvements in the U.S. 97/Murphy Road area is $45 million. The first functional project is estimated to cost $28.3 million and is mostly JTA funded. The project will be constructed in two phases with the first one beginning in summer 2013 and the second beginning in fall 2014. All other future projects in the area will be built using federal, state, local and private funding.

This first project will:

  • realign and extend Murphy Road from Parrell Road, overcrossing the Bend Parkway, to Brookswood Blvd.,
  • construct a fly-over connection from the new Murphy Road/Third Street intersection to southbound U.S. 97,
  • and remove traffic signals at U.S. 97/Third Street and U.S. 97/Pinebrook Blvd.


Benefit of Project:

The project will improve travel times, enhance freight mobility, reduce current and future congestion, and improve east-west connectivity, which is hampered by the at-grade crossings of the Bend Parkway, thereby allowing local trips to travel on city streets rather than on U.S. 97. The project will also provide enhanced bicycle and pedestrian access across U.S. 97, which is currently limited, and reduce safety problems.

U.S. 97 is a designated freight route and the only major north-south route in Oregon east of the Cascade Mountains. U.S. 97 plays a key role for travel to and within Central Oregon, and it also serves through traffic from California to Washington. ODOT has invested significant resources in improving U.S. 97 for freight and passenger travel, including building the Bend Parkway and the Redmond Reroute. Both of these projects created new alignments for U.S. 97 to offer a faster way for through traffic to travel through the region.

The southern section of the Bend Parkway was opened in 2001. Unlike the rest of the parkway, which features grade-separated interchanges, most of the intersections on the south end of the Parkway are at-grade with traffic signals. However, significant growth in the region-Bend was one of the fastest growing cities in the country for much of the last two decades-is adding pressure to an already congested transportation network. These at-grade intersections on the southern section of the Parkway slow travel and also create traffic conflicts and safety issues. Recent planning efforts by ODOT and the City of Bend have determined that a new overcrossing should be built on U.S. 97 at Murphy Road. This would allow for removal of traffic signals on U.S. 97 at Pinebrook Boulevard and Third Street. The project will build out the transportation system in a rapidly-growing part of the region and allow for future economic development in the area by opening up access to undeveloped land within the city limits.



Current Status:
The project is being split into two contracts. The first contract will begin summer 2013 and be completed by the end of 2014. The second contract will begin fall 2014 and be completed by the end of 2015. The total cost for the first two contacts increased by $2.6 million due to right of way and utility relocation costs. Federal, state, local and private funding is being sought for subsequent phases of work in the Murphy Road area.The installation of a Variable Message Sign (VMS) south of Bend is being included in the second contract increasing the total project cost to $28.815 million.

Westland Road in Umatilla County
Overall Project Work Description:
The Westland Road in Umatilla County project is located on Westland Road, a county road in Umatilla County. The Westland Road project consists of designing and constructing improvements at the Lamb Road, Walker Road, and Westland Road Intersection located south-west of Hermiston.

Improvements include realigning Lamb Road to be the through roadway and realigning Walker Road and Westland Road to tee into Lamb Road. Utility coordination and relocation may be necessary pending preliminary design. Right-of-way acquisition is necessary for the project on Lamb Road and Walker Road. Bridge widening may be necessary on Westland Road pending preliminary design. Overlaying the approach roads will be considered during the design process depending on an analysis of the available funding.


Benefit of Project:
The main benefit of this project will be to improve the intersection safety by realigning the approach roads and making Lamb Road the through roadway. Lamb Road was selected to be the through roadway by Umatilla County in 2006 as a part of a feasibility study that presented several alternatives.

Interstate 84 Spring Creek Climbing Lane in Union County
Overall Project Work Description:
The Interstate 84 Spring Creek Climbing Lane project is located in Union County and will construct a third lane between mile posts 246.6 and 248.1 westbound.

At completion of the project, commercial vehicles would be restricted to the right lanes, keeping the left lane open to passenger vehicles. This allows passenger vehicles to proceed at posted speeds without delay when commercial vehicles overtake each other. In the winter this would also allow emergency and winter maintenance vehicles to navigate around trucks that have blocked the truck lanes. New 12-foot-wide travel lanes for trucks will be constructed of concrete to withstand wear and extend the life of the new roadway.


Benefit of Project:

The project would alleviate bottlenecks that occur when both lanes of the interstate are being used by commercial vehicles, serving to improve freight mobility and minimize delays for passenger vehicles.

The six percent westbound grade on I-84 at Spring Creek is a frequent and year-round bottleneck for freeway traffic. In the summer months the differential speeds between large vehicles and passenger vehicles creates traffic safety issues. When large vehicles overtake each other at slow speeds, traffic delays occur as passenger vehicles are delayed behind the slow moving vehicles. In the winter months, large vehicles frequently spin out on the grade which blocks the freeway. This section experiences frequent and lengthy winter related closures. The mountainous terrain precludes alternative routes for this section. As a result, the closures become a large burden to freight and passenger mobility through Eastern Oregon.



Current Status:
The project has been awarded to Oregon Main Line and is currently under construction. The climbing lane is part of a larger project to reconstruct a portion of Interstate 84. Completion is anticipated fall 2015.

Conditions along Hurricane Creek Road have deteriorated over time. Currently the roadway suffers from frost heave and contains two curves that need realignment to alleviate safety concerns. During the spring, summer, and fall months, the roadway is used as a vehicle and bicycle scenic route by folks visiting the area.

Adding a vehicle turn-out and shoulders for bicycles and pedestrians will help delineate traffic from the other facility users, creating a safer environment along Hurricane Creek Road. These elements will remove users from the state high-way system, thereby reducing safety conflicts along Oregon 82.During the winter months Hurricane Creek Road provides an alternative route where viable alternate to Oregon 82 is not currently available.



Current Status:
The project has bid, Kerr Construction has notice to proceed, starting work May 20th.

Pierce Road improvements in Union County
Overall Project Work Description:
The Pierce Road Improvements in Union County project is located on Pierce Road, a Union County road. The project consists of roadway improvements for Pierce Road from Oregon 203 north to Oregon 82 for an approximate length of 3.7 miles, and roadway improvements on Airport Road east of Pierce Road for an approximate length of 0.6 mile.

Pierce Road is a farm to market road. Major connections are Oregon 82, Oregon 237, US 30, and I-84.

The roadway improvements for Pierce Road consist of shoulder widening, asphalt base repair, asphalt overlay, and related improvements. The roadway section will have 26 feet of asphalt surfacing and 2-foot gravel shoulders on each side. Roadside slopes will be flattened to improve safety. The roadway improvements on Airport Road consist of asphalt base repair and asphalt overlay. No right-of-way will be needed for either section of roadway and very limited utility work will be required.



Benefit of Project:
Pierce Road is a primary connector road between state Oregon 82, Oregon 237, and Oregon 203. It is also the primary access to the La Grande/Union County Airport. Pierce Road also provides access to major industries including Boise Cascade, two travel trailer manufacturers, and the Union County Airport Business Park. The existing pavement structure is at the end of its useful life and an overlay is needed to preserve the existing pavement. The existing roadway section varies in width and shoulder slopes at many locations are steeper than 3:1. Shoulder grading is needed to improve safety. The Airport Road pavement surface is at the end of its useful life and an overlay is needed to preserve the existing pavement.

Chandler Lane reconstruction in Baker County
Overall Project Work Description:
The Chandler Lane Reconstruction in Baker County project is located on Chandler Lane, a county road.

The project will reconstruct Chandler Lane between I-84 and U.S. 30 to provide an alternate truck route.


Benefit of Project:

Increasing traffic in the interchange area coupled with future development will create additional conflict points than can be mitigated by constructing a local parallel street network to move traffic away from the interchange.

The project will enhance freight mobility by providing a connector between I-84 and U.S. 30. Chandler Lane is the first east/west crossing of the Powder River, approximately five miles north of the Baker City limits and Hughes Lane. The project would solve a line of sight safety issue at the Powder River Bridge by increasing the road grade elevation at the bridge’s east approach.

Vehicle Chain-Up Areas East of Pendleton on Interstate 84
Overall Project Work Description:
Construction is Complete. This is the last update for this project.

Construction is Complete. This is the last update for this project.


Benefit of Project:

During winter conditions trucks need additional space to pull off of Interstate 84 and install or remove tire chains to allow them to safely make it over the summits that occur through the Blue Mountain passes along Interstate 84.

A chain-up area adjacent to the freeway is valuable to help keep traffic moving safely and decrease congestion immediately adjacent to the travel lane. Along freeway sections where trucks do not have designated chain-up areas drivers sometimes stop on the freeway shoulders or directly in travel lanes to install or remove chains, creating extreme safety hazards for drivers and passing vehicles.

An increased number of designated areas for removing chains will also help extend the life of the pavement surface by reducing the number of chained trucks driving on bare pavement. Overall, chain-up areas provide a safe location for drivers to install or remove chains and improve mobility with fewer delays during winter storm events.


Note: $300,000 of JTA money was transferred from the "I84: REGION 5 CHAIN UP AREAS" project to the "FFO-I-84:BALDOCK SLOUGH-SOUTH BAKER INTERCHANGE" project in order to construct one of the chain-up locations. Bringing in the $21M Baldock Slough project increased the size of this project considerably. The bids came in low for the Baldock project, so the JTA funds were not needed and were returned to this Chain-up Areas project, and decreasing its size back to the original $4.7M.



Current Status:

Baker County
Overall Project Work Description:
Baker County and the City of Baker City have several street projects to complete utilizing funds from the Transportation Bill.

The following describes and prioritize these projects:

Resort Street Improvements. Resort Street is an integral piece of Baker City’s transportation network. Serving as a collector for one of our largest commercial areas, the street provides a connection between Highway 7 and Highway 30, as well as an alternative route for traffic from Main Street (Highway 30). The scope of this project would include eight blocks between Campbell Street and Auburn. The street itself is in poor condition, the only commercial street in Baker City to receive such a designation in our adopted Pavement Management Plan. Large sections of the base have failed, the asphalt is severely cracked and the sidewalks are crumbling. A major overhaul is needed to make this street a viable alternative for the community. The scope of work includes a complete rebuild of the street and construction of new sidewalks, including street trees and pedestrian lighting. Best Frontage Road Improvements.

Another essential piece of Baker City and County’s transportation infrastructure is the completion of Best Frontage Road. East of Interstate 84, Best Frontage Road provides a co

nnection between Baker City’s two busiest interchanges (302 and 304). The scope of the project would be phased, depending on available funding. Improvements would include construction of a new street with curbs, gutters and sidewalks built to Baker County City standards. A multi-use path would be constructed on one side of the street for bicycle and pedestrian use. Street lighting would also be placed where needed. Our preference would be to complete the street between Exits 302 and 304, providing a connection from Highway 86 to Campbell Street and Highway 7. Any remaining funds would be used to rebuild sections of Best Frontage Road that are in disrepair.



Benefit of Project:

The Resort Street portion of the project will improve the roadway surface, improve sidewalks, and provide a better pedestrian environment.

The Best Frontage Road work will open up a great deal of commercial property adjacent to the Interstate, giving us an opportunity to locate new businesses in our community. It will also improve pedestrian and bicycle facilities.



Current Status:
The Best Frontage Road Project is in the design phase. The Resort Street portion of the project is under construction by Mike Becker Construction, and is complete.

Malheur County
Overall Project Work Description:
This project between Vale and Nyssa in Malheur County consists of paving, curb, gutter, sidewalk improvements, and bridge improvements.

Lytle and Enterprise are key components of a shortcut route between Vale and the Nyssa/Adrian area and points south. This route connects Hwy. 20 to Hwy. 201 and diverts traffic off of Hwy. 20/26. These roads barely survive on chip seals and are in desperate need of an overlay.

Also included are 4 blocks of Glenn St. in Vale, a major collector that needs curb, gutter, sidewalk, and repaving.

The concrete bridge on NW 36th St. was built in 1968. It is 80’ long and 24’wide (22’driving width). NW 36th St. is a major north-south collector near Ontario Serving both commuters and farm-to-market. The bridge deck is too narrow for today’s traffic, and the opining underneath is often too small for the Malheur River. These features create bottlenecks during busy traffic times and during high water events. The solution is a longer, higher, and wider bridge.

Benefit of Project:
This project will improve roadway conditions, pedestrian facilities, and the capacity of a concrete bridge.


Current Status:
36th Street bridge is complete and the ribbon cutting was on Oct 31 2012. Lytle Boulevard was awarded to Knife River and is under construction. It is anticipated that all funds will be expended.

Union County
Overall Project Work Description:
This project in La Grande will make roadway improvements to South 12th Street/Bushnell Road. The project objective will be to improve safety for pedestrians, vehicular traffic, and bicyclists, correct deficient roadway structure, and correct existing roadway surface water deficiencies.

South 12th Street/Bushnell Road is partially under the jurisdiction of Union County and partially under the jurisdiction of the City of La Grande. Union county will be the lead agency on this project. The roadway provides a primary access to a major residential area in south La Grande, as well as a school bus route for this area of La Grande.

This project connects to north 12th Street, which was reconstructed in 2008, and also connects to Gekeler Lane, which was reconstructed in 2007 (see attached vicinity Map). These combined projects provide vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle access to all of south La Grande and key transportation links to Grande Ronde Hospital, Eastern Oregon University, Highway 30/I-84, public schools, and downtown La Grande. Immediate access is provided to the new Veteran’s Clinic, which was constructed in 2008, Blue Mt. Conference Center, Oregon National Guard Armory, local commercial businesses, assisted living facilities, churches, etc.

The existing paved roadway width is 20 feet, with no sidewalks, curbs, bike, lanes, and no roadway surface water management. The pavement condition is poor with very little base structure. This is the last section of 12th Street that does not have sidewalks or bicycle lanes.

Roadway improvements will provide curb gutters, sidewalks, bicycle lanes, and a surface water management system. Safety is a major concern for pedestrians and bicyclists. A lack of surface water facilities results in runoff routing across adjacent residential and other private property. Appropriate base and HMAC pavement structure will be provided. Project length is approximately 4,500 feet.



Benefit of Project:
This project will improve roadway conditions, pedestrian facilities, and the surface water management system.


Current Status:
Construction is complete.

City of Nyssa
Overall Project Work Description:
This project in Nyssa will make numerous improvements to roadway facilities on Locust Avenue and 3rd Street. The work begins at US Highway 20-26/Thunderegg Blvd at Locust Avenue continues east to North 3rd Street then south on 3rd Street, and ends at Main Street/Hwy 20/26.

The City of Nyssa will construct two travel lanes on Locust Avenue including sub-base, base and asphalt, construct bike lane(s), parking and ADA compliant sidewalk on the south side of Locust Avenue from US 20-26 Thunderegg Blvd to 3rd Street. Constructing ADA pedestrian ramps and sidewalks, where needed, on one side of 3rd Street from Locust Avenue south on 3rd Street ending on Main/US 20-26. Storm drainage will be improved as required by the project. Project length along Locust Avenue is approximately 2600 feet.


Benefit of Project:

This project will improve the capacity, safety, sustainability, and connectivity of these facilities.

Locust Avenue is the most feasible alternate route if the railroad underpass is blocked on US 20-26 at mile post 266.41, and 3rd is a collector street/truck route. This project will improve this major collector street that is in poor repair thus providing connectivity and provide ADA compliant sidewalk on one side of Locust Avenue and 3rd Street improving pedestrian safety and connectivity. Safety and Sustainability: Connectivity and safety for bicyclists and pedestrians linking residents to City Parks, local stores, and schools will help encourage the use of alternative modes of transportation and a “Green Community”. These elements will remove users from the traffic system, thereby reducing safety conflicts for all users. Installing ADA compliant sidewalks will keep pedestrians off the street and onto a safe path.

Port of Umatilla
Overall Project Work Description:
The current entrance to the Port of Umatilla terminals (grain, fuel, and containers), from Bud Draper Dr. north on Roxbury has a steep grade, an at-grade railroad crossing, and a hard hair-pin turn at the bottom. This proposal is to make the existing road a secondary access road and to construct a new road across Port land from Beach Access Rd. west to Launch Lane.

The project consists of upgrading Beach Access Rd. to meet county standards for trucks. This includes building two intersections or one roundabout (engineer decision); constructing approximately 1 mile of new access road on Port property: improving entrances to the fuel dock and grain elevators and sleeve fuel dock piping under road; enhancing the Container Dock Entrance gate with safety bumpers, guard station, lights, and surveillance cameras; widening the hill portion of Roxbury including truck turnouts for the weigh station and at fuel dock; moving one existing scale to the new road; installing automated gate systems at the west exit of the container dock and Launch Lane, overlaying Bud Draper Drive and provide truck turnout at North end for scale, and providing signage for intersections, truck turnouts, dock entrance gates.

Also included is some curb, sidewalk, lighting, signage, and drainage as required. The new entrance will lessen the grade, eliminate the at-grade railroad crossing, and eliminate the hair-pin corner. The trucks will have safer access to the respective terminals because of increased visibility, less grade, wider lanes, engineered truck turnouts, and no railroad crossing.



Benefit of Project:
This project will improve the capacity and safety of these facilities.

Construction is complete. The project spent all but $ 62,260.
