Project Details

Oregon 62 - Shady Cove Improvements

Construction Phase

Region 3: Southwestern Oregon (Shady Cove, Jackson)

This enhancement project strives to find the right balance for local businesses and highway users on Shady Cove's "Main Street", while improving safety for all users, including bicyclists and pedestrians.

It also accomodates a private water company installing new pipe for the community in state right of way.


Traffic Impact

During construction, traffic mobility will be maintained as well as business and pedestrian (ADA) access.
Contractor will focus on the river side first - Oct. - Dec. 15, 2017
West side of the highway will be worked on from January-June, 2018


October 2017 through late Spring 2018

Utility relocates, which began earlier this summer, will continue through the fall.



In partnership with the City of Shady Cove, this $2.7 million enhancement project will slightly widen Highway 62 in the urban section of Shady Cove between Rogue River Drive north to Cleveland Street.

It will construct a two-way, center turn lane and provide sidewalks, bike lanes and storm sewer.

Sidewalks will be constructed on both sides of the highway: on the river side between Rogue River Drive to the Chase Bank; on the west side from Chaparral Drive to Cleveland Street.
To accommodate business owners on the southwest side, sidewalks were deleted from the project; however there will be road work in that area.
Jackson County is funding construction of a right turn lane for Rogue River Drive.

Additional Information

The project began in October 2017 and is scheduled to wrap up before Memorial Day weekend in 2018. Depending on the winter and spring, some finish elements may extend into June.

Work will be staged so the contractor will work on one side of the highway at a time.

Between October and late December, work will focus exclusively on the east (river side) of the highway, between the bridge and Heather Lane.
From January through the end of May, work will concentrate on the west side.
In addition to a new roadway surface, the project will build:
  • Curb, gutter and sidewalks on the river side of Oregon 62 from the Rogue River Bridge to the north side of Chase Bank;
  • Curb, gutter and sidewalks on the west side of Oregon 62 from Chaparral Drive north to Cleveland Street;
  • Marked crosswalks and rapid flashing beacons north of Rogue River Drive and between Chaparral Drive and Williams Lane;
  • Bike lanes, sidewalks, and a continuous, two-way, left-turn lane on Oregon 62; and
  • A right-turn lane from Rogue River Drive onto southbound Oregon 62.
