I-5: Exit 125 Northbound at Garden Valley Blvd.

Construction Phase

Region 3: Southwestern Oregon (Roseburg, Douglas)

​​​​​​​​​This project will ease congestion and improve safety at the I-5 Garden Valley interchange (Exit 125) by adding a right-turn lane on the northbound off-ramp. ADA pedestrian ramps will be replaced at the intersection of the northbound ramps with Garden Valley Blvd.


UPDATE: ODOT is scheduled to turn on the new traffic signals and open all three lanes of the Exit 125 northbound off-ramp early Wednesday morning, June 26. Drivers should watch for directional signs and pavement marking when using the off-ramp.


Construction Impacts

​Most construction will take place on weeknights (8 p.m. to 6 a.m.), Sunday night to Friday morning.

Local roads: Construction may require nighttime lane closures on Garden Valley Blvd. and Mulholland Drive.

Munson Court: At least one lane will remain open at all times on Munson Court. Nearby residents should watch for workers and construction equipment. Expect nighttime construction noise.

I-5 ramps: Some nighttime ramp closures at Exit 125 may be necessary. Detours will be available. ODOT will provide public notice prior to any ramp closures.


Construction is scheduled from October 2023 to June 2024.



​The I-5 northbound off-ramp at Exit 125 intersects Garden Valley Blvd. and consists of two lanes, a dedicated left-turn lane and a combined lane for traffic continuing straight or turning right. More than 10,000 vehicles use this ramp on an average day.

Congestion is a common problem on the ramp due to high traffic volumes and a mix of vehicles in the right lane either going straight or turning right. Traffic sometimes backs up to the I-5 travel lanes, increasing the risk of crashes.

ODOT will address this problem by creating a third lane on the northbound off-ramp. The new ramp configuration will include dedicated turn lanes, both left and right, as well as a through lane for vehicles continuing straight onto Mulholland Drive.

To accommodate the new lane, ODOT will widen the north end of the off-ramp, install a retaining wall between the ramp and Munson Court, replace traffic signal poles and hardware, and repave the intersection.

The driveways adjacent to the southeast corner of the intersection, along with the Munson Court access, will be adjusted to provide space for the additional lane. Lanes on Garden Valley Blvd. and Mulholland Dr. will will not be changed.

The project will also improve pedestrian facilities by replacing sidewalks and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) curb ramps,  and installing new push-button pedestrian beacons.
