​This is a three-year planning project. The notice to proceed for this work order contract was issued on April 3, 2018. The project is scheduled for completion by July 2021.​



Over the past several years, Interstate 5 traffic through Roseburg has experienced increased congestion and bottlenecks. The area has also seen a high rate of fatal and injury crashes, nearly double the statewide average.

To help improve safety, the speed limit through Roseburg (milepost 123-127) was decreased from 65 mph to 60 mph in 2017, but initial studies have shown little change in speed.

This planning project will study the corridor between Exit 119 and Exit 129 and look for low-cost options to improve safety and reduce congestion.

The study will consider a wide variety of topics, including: law enforcement, transit, environmental issues, partnering agencies, economic development, impacts to businesses, school transportation, emergency situations, and funding.


I-5 | Interstate 5 (milepost 119-129): The project area extends north and south of Roseburg, from Exit 119 (Oregon 42 junction) to Exit 129 (Winchester), and all properties abutting the interstate travel lanes and interchange ramps.​

Cost and Funding

This project involves State Planning and Research funds. 

The current budget for the project is $439,221.00 (as of Nov. 21, 2019).​
