Construction Phase

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Roadway improvements on OR 99E through Halsey.

Banner: Slow down, in the work zone it could save lives. Building a modern transportation system to help Oregon’s communities and economy thrive. During construction, Give yourself more time, try a new way or mode to get there or take a different route.


Traffic Impact

​​Expect shoulder and lane closures with flaggers helping direct traffic. Plan ahead for possible delays, side street closures and pedestrian detours. 

If you're driving a larger vehicle, take the signed detour on I-5 and OR 99W to get around the project area. The work zone has 10-foot wide lanes. 

Construction Impacts

We're working during the day, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Expect construction noise.

Current work requires a detour for larger vehicles, the route is marked.​

Use caution – we've reduced the speed limit in the work zone to 25 mph.​

Construction Activities

We're paving on the concrete from J Street to O Street the week of June 17. ​This work is weather dependent and our schedule may change.

​Construction is estimated to complete in 2024

Beginning at American Drive and extending to the south city limits, this improvement project will cover nearly a mile and pass through downtown Halsey. 

Proposed improvements include:

  • Repairing or replace damaged concrete panels under highway asphalt.

  • Adding travel and bike lanes. 

  • Connecting the existing sidewalks within city limits. 

  • Upgrading pedestrian crossings to current ADA standards.

  • Installing stormwater treatment facilities. 

  • Landscaping.

  • Streetscaping to calm traffic on the highway through downtown. 

  • Building intersections that accommodate truck traffic where appropriate. 

At the completion of this project, roadway users will experience improved pedestrian and bike access to the downtown district. ​
