Impacts

Traffic Impact

Enlarged Project MapTraffic impacts will vary depending on the work.

​At this time, we do not anticipate any detours.

For most locations, you can expect:
  • Pedestrian detours.
  • Reduced speeds.
  • ​Width restrictions during paving operations.
In Stanfield, watch for traffic pattern changes.
  • Outer lanes in each direction are closed to accomodate work crews.
  • Traffic is routed to one northbound and one southbound travel lane, with a center turn lane. 
    • PLEASE NOTE: The center turn lane might be used to shift traffic while workers are on site.

About

​Traffic on U.S. 395 between Hermiston and Stanfield has increased over the years. The highway shows signs of fatigue and cracking. We will make repairs to extend the life of the highway. This section of highway has also seen an increase in pedestrian and bicycle traffic. We will upgrade ADA curb ramps and make other safety improvements to benefit all users.

Project work includes the following elements.

Paving: 
We will pave approximately 6.5 miles of U.S. 395. Project begins in Hermiston, just east of Southeast Fourth Street, continues through Stanfield and ends near the I-84 overpass.

Lane Reconfiguration:
We will reduce the number of travel lanes through Stanfield. Sometimes referred to as road diets, the reduction makes room for bicycle lanes and on-street parking. (You can learn more about road diets by visiting this Federal Highway Administration website.)

For more information, watch the video for Highway 11:
In 2019 ODOT restriped Oregon Highway 11 through Milton-Freewater to improve safety after a new grade school was added a block away from the busy route. The project changed the road from two lanes each direction to one lane each direction with a center turn lane, sometimes referred to as a “road diet”. Dedicated bicycle lanes were also added. The enhancement is improving safety for school children and other pedestrians, bicycle riders, motorists and all users of the local transportation system. Hear how ODOT worked with the city and school district to make these changes a successful solution for various safety concerns.

Benefits of Lane Reconfigurations:
  • Encourages slower and safer speeds through town.
  • Reduces vehicle-to-vehicle conflicts.
  • Increases safety and mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists.​

This illustration shows the new lane configuration through Stanfield.

  • Two 12-foot travel lanes (one in each direction).
  • One 14-foot two-way left-turn lane.
  • One 5-foot bicycle lane in each direction, with 2-foot buffer between bike lane and travel lane.
  • Street parking.
  • ​Curb extensions at intersections between Northwest Harding Street and East Ball Avenue will provide additional pedestrian space.

ADA Curbs Ramps:
We will upgrade 79 ADA curb ramps, 14 in Hermiston and 65 in Stanfield.
