Built in the 1960’s, the Randy Papé Beltline Highway from River Road to Delta Highway is one of the most congested places in the Eugene/Springfield area.  Building on the Beltline Facility Plan (2014), the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is developing concepts to improve safety and travel times on the Beltline Highway from River Road to Delta Highway.

The Beltline Facility Plan recommends several projects to improve safety and mobility in this area. Together, these projects would widen Beltline Highway to three lanes in each direction from River Road to Delta Highway, replace the River Avenue/Division Avenue interchange, and add a new local bridge north of the highway. These projects could be constructed in phases or as separate projects.

Beltline Highway/Delta Highway Interchange Project

Improvements to Beltline Highway from River Road to Delta Highway build on the planned reconfiguration and improvement of the Beltline/Delta Highway Interchange. The interchange will be reconstructed as a partial cloverleaf to improve safety by eliminating merging and weaving issues on the two intersecting highways. Final designs are now being developed for the Beltline/Delta Highway Interchange and construction is planned for 2020.

Additional Information

Also on Beltline Highway:

In Summer 2018, Beltline was paved between Roosevelt Boulevard and Coburg Road. The paving project addressed deterioration on the highway, which is one of the main commuter and freight routes through the northern end of Eugene.  Bridges received waterproofing membranes and joint replacements.
The Beltline Highway/Delta Highway Interchange construction project will make the interchange a partial cloverleaf. This will improve safety by eliminating merging and weaving issues on the two intersecting highways. Construction will begin in 2020.

Related to travel on Beltline Highway:

Summer 2019 - Work continues on OR-126/Florence-Eugene Highway between Veneta and Eugene. Construction has begun and paving will occur in late summer. 
Summer 2019 - I-105 Eugene-Springfield Highway has 24-hour lane closures as four bridges and ramps between the Delta Highway interchange and downtown Eugene are rehabilitated and brought up to current standards. Construction will continue through 2020.
