This proposed project, as outlined in a 2012 Multimodal Transportation Program Project Application submitted by Crook County and the City of Prineville and now included in the 2015-1018 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, involves designing and constructing a single lane roundabout at this intersection.
The roundabout will reduce conflicts among vehicles while improving traffic flow for all users, including freight. It will also improve access to and from the Prineville industrial area.
What Problem Will This
The intersection of OR 126 and Tom McCall Road is currently stop-sign controlled on the side roads where there can be long delays for motorists leaving the industrial areas or for vehicles wanting to turn left onto or off of the highway.
These issues, particularly occurring during peak travel times, cause a safety problem for all users. This project will reduce the number and severity of crashes at this intersection which makes it a high priority for ODOT. Access to industrial developments along Tom McCall Road makes this a critical intersection for City of Prineville and Crook County.
