OR 126: Tom McCall Road Roundabout

Project Completed

Region 4: Central Oregon (Prineville, Crook)


​T​his project improved the safety, mobility and access at the intersection of OR 126 and Tom McCall Road.​​

Impacts

Meetings and Events

The Oregon Department of Transportation in partnership with Crook County and the City of Prineville, heard from the public and various stakeholders regarding this proposed project. Several public meetings presented information about the proposed roundabout at the intersection of OR 126 and Tom McCall Road. Presentation materials from the public meeting are found below.

Consistent with ODOT roundabout policy, consideration of a roundabout and the approach treatments included a range of stakeholders and interests along this critical freight route, particularly for over-dimensional loads.

ODOT held a Roundabout Rodeo in August 2016, laying a to-scale replica of the proposed roundabout design for the freight industry. This event provided positive feedback about the roundabout and helped refine the design. See a video of the Roundabout Rodeo.​​​

Benefits

This 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, involved designing and constructing a single lane roundabout at the intersection.

The roundabout reduced conflicts among vehicles while improving traffic flow for all users, including freight. It also improved access to and from the Prineville industrial area.

What Problem Will This Improve?

The intersection of OR 126 and Tom McCall Road was 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, caused a safety problem for all users. This project reduced the number and severity of crashes at this intersection
