view the enlarged project mapThis section of OR 126 is a snow zone and the current pavement is cracking and needs to be replaced. The pavement is in poor condition and has required our maintenance crew to apply patches more frequently to hold this section together. 

We will: 

  • Remove the existing pavement. 

  • Repave.

  • Apply permanent striping. 

  • Adjust or replace guardrail.

​By repaving, we're creating a smoother ride and preserving the road so more costly repairs are not needed in the future.
