I-105 bridges and associated ramps between the Delta Highway Interchange and downtown Eugene were built in the late 1960s and early 1970s and are in need of repairs and upgrades. Work to be done includes:
- Installing guardrails that meet current crash standards
- Seismic upgrades
- Replacing bridge joints
One section of the road was actually a bridge that was to go over a highway that was never built. It was removed in the first portion of the project.
Between the Delta Highway interchange and downtown Eugene
Cost and Funding
Project Budget: $18 million
Wildish Standard Paving
What are the bumps in the road?
- They are the replaced bridge joints.
- They will go away as the road is repaved.
- Slow down to cross them. This is a construction zone.
- It takes about 10 days for each to be replaced, including concrete drying time.
Why did this project begin in the fall?
- Bridge work and concrete paving can be done any time of the year.
- Longer, year-round projects begin throughout the year. This helps ODOT and our contractors better plan and balance the use of employee and equipment resources
Is construction done around the clock?
- Most construction is not around the clock, but will be at times.
Why doesn't TripCheck show traffic delay information?
- The color coding of the road shows how traffic is moving, but not the time it will take. It also shows any incidents that may be occurring, like disabled vehicles or crashes. We don't have the technology in place to show real time travel time on I-105 right now.
City of Eugene traffic cameras added to TripCheck
- City of Eugene traffic cameras have been added on 6th and 7th Avenues for additional information on traffic.
- Four cameras have been added to Coburg Road.
Many people changed routes to avoid construction but I-105 may be the best way to get where you are going. On TripCheck you can get an update on construction (lane and ramp closure status) and see how traffic is flowing.
Do not block intersections, and be aware of bikes and pedestrians. Good weather means more people get out of the car and avoid the backups. Watch for them.
Eugene Police Department is increasing patrols in the area.
Practice work zone safety. Watch for crews and help us all get home.
