Roadside development encompasses the work needed to those areas outside of the roadway itself.
The roadside includes all lands managed by the Oregon Department of Transportation and may extend to areas outside ODOT's right-of-way boundary. Such areas include:
- 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.
