Enlarged project map​We plan to widen I-5 to have three lanes in both directions from Kuebler Boulevard to Delaney Road. This is Phase 1 of the larger project which will widen a portion of southbound I-5 between Kuebler Boulevard in South Salem and the Delaney Road interchange. This project will address the southbound freight bottleneck and traffic congestion on I-5 that occurs when large trucks are climbing the hill between milepost 249.5 and milepost 248.9 south of Salem. Phase 2 will widen the northbound I-5 lanes, but we do not have funding for construction at this time. 

fill out a comment formThe project was part of an Environmental Impact Study (EIS) that was done in the mid-1980's for the entire I-5 corridor through Salem from the Hayesville Interchange to Battle Creek Road. The EIS was approved by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and ODOT in 1988. ​​​

​This phase will do the following:

  • Obtain Right of Way for the entire project corridor (both southbound and northbound).

  • Replace a bridge over the Commercial Street northbound off-ramp.

  • Rebuild and realign the southbound Delaney Road off-ramp.

  • Create concept level designs for replacing Battle Creek Road over-crossing bridge.

  • Pave the existing section southbound and northbound.

  • Widen I-5 southbound from Battlecreek Road to Delaney Road.
