​This project will improve the safety of U.S. 30 between Scappoose and St. Helens (from mileposts 25.7 to 27.2) in Columbia County by:

  • Increasing the turning radius of the right turn lane from U.S. 30 onto Bennett Road by widening and restriping the roadway near the intersection.
  • Restricting left turns onto U.S. 30 from Bennett Road by creating a median.
  • Adding a traffic signal at U.S. 30 and Millard Road.
  • Widening Millard Road to provide protected access to U.S. 30 from Millard Road.
  • Upgrading the rail crossings at both Millard and Bennett Roads, work to be completed by the railroad.
