Roadside development encompasses the work needed to those areas outside of the roadway itself.

  • Unpaved median strips;
  • Rest areas;
  • Roadside parks;
  • View points;
  • Heritage markers; and 
  • Pedestrian and bicycle facilities.

ODOT manages these areas by assessing, protecting and mitigating impacts of highway projects to both cultural and natural resources.
