U.S. 30: Pendleton Signal Upgrade Project Phase 2

Construction Phase

Region 5: Eastern Oregon (Pendleton, Umatilla)

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We are replacing signal poles, upgrading traffic signals and ADA sidewalk ramps at the intersection of SW Dorion Avenue (U.S. 30) and SW 1st Street.​


Traffic Impact

There will be single lane closures on Dorion Avenue and SW First Street. Some flagging may be needed to direct traffic.

Traffic signals at this intersection have been turned off. 

Construction Impacts

​Expect lane and sidewalk closures during construction activities at the SW Dorion Avenue/SW First Street intersection work sites. Pedestrian detours to accommodate all users will be set up and marked during sidewalk closures. Motorists may want to use alternate routes during drilling/construction activities that require lane restrictions.

Meetings and Events

​We will work with the city of Pendleton and business partners to prepare for this project. We will also work with businesses that will be impacted by the project.

We held an online open house January 11 through January 27, 2023. The information presented in the open house remains available for viewing at the following link.​

During the online open house, we received questions about the ADA curb ramp and sidewalk treatments. See the FAQ at the bottom of the page.


​Work will pause late in the week and through the weekend for Bike Week.

For the week of July 15:
The contractor will install storm drain features (manholes, inlets and pipes) on the south side of the intersection

​The project is scheduled to be completed fall 2024.​



​The existing poles and span wires holding the traffic signals at these intersections are old and do not meet current safety standards. 

We will replace signal poles and upgrade traffic signals at this intersection​.
  • SW Dorion Avenue (U.S. 30) and SW 1st Street.
Due to an increase in costs, we have removed work at SW Court Avenue and SW 1st Street for this phase. Funds will be allocated to the next phase of this project.

Replacement signals will have new metal poles with arched extensions holding signal heads.
