Impacts

Traffic Impact

Online Open House

Single lane or shoulder closures along the routes. 



Construction Impacts

Wo​rk zones will be controlled by flaggers. Delays to traffic should be minimal since the lane closures will occur between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.​

About

Over 50% of Oregon's curve warning and curve speed signs do not meet current national standards. This is because of outdated technologies used in initial curve speed analysis, changes in driving habits, improvements in vehicle safety features and inconsistent curve speed advisory changes that have happened over the past several decades. 

To create a more uniform and reliable curve warning system across the United States, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has required that all curve signs meet the new standards.

Our Region 2 Curve Warnings Sign projects will update curve warning signs on various highways throughout the region. This will improve safety by having consistent curve advisory speed limits and installing signs that meet the national standards.

Because many curves have posted speed limits that are lower than the current standards for safe speeds, drivers often do not follow them. Instead drivers travel five, ten or more miles an hour over the posted curve speed limit.

​Schedule

Construction in 2021-2022.

When in construction, travelers can expect lane closures, flaggers and delays of up to 20 minutes where work is taking place.

TripCheck will have the most up to date information on traffic impacts.
