ODOT Region 2 JTA Projects

House Bill 2001, also known as the Oregon Jobs and Transportation Act, is the transportation funding plan adopted by the 2009 Legislature. This site contains information on the following JTA projects within ODOT Region 2:

Beltline Highway at Delta Highway (Eugene/Springfield)

The project is expected to alleviate congestion and unsafe conditions in the Beltline Highway corridor, particularly at the interchange of Beltline Highway (OR 569) and Delta Highway (Lane County road), through the use of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). 

US101/OR6 Traffic Improvement Project (Tillamook)

The project is located in Tillamook County where State Highway 6 and U.S. Highway 101 come together in historic downtown Tillamook. The project will be designed to improve the safety and operations of these two highways as they converge. The project will also make the downtown intersections more efficient for those traveling through downtown and safer for everyone. 

Highway 99W Newberg Dundee Bypass

This project is located near the Oregon 99W corridor, where the highway passes through Newberg and Dundee in eastern Yamhill County. The project will provide an alternate route for local commuter and freight traffic around the congestion in Dundee and south Newberg, reducing the number of vehicles using Oregon 99W. 

I-5 at Beltline (Eugene/Springfield)

This modernization project has been divided into smaller sections to make it easier to construct parts of the project as funding becomes available. Remaining work will continue to modernize the interchange, which serves interstate, regional, and local traffic to the surrounding residential and commercial centers.

I-5 at Kuebler Interchange (Salem)

This project will upgrade the existing interchange to support the area’s planned expansion by adding an additional loop ramp and modifying the eastbound to southbound ramp and the existing southbound off ramp. 

I-5 at Mill Creek (Salem)

The Mill Creek Corporate Center (MCCC) is a partnership between the State of Oregon and the City of Salem to create a major employment center on agricultural land previously owned by the Oregon Department of Corrections in Southeast Salem.

Woodburn Interchange and Transit Facility

The project will improve the existing interchange and add a transit facility to improve traffic flow and safety and promote economic development in Woodburn and the surrounding area.

Highway 101/6 Project Update: Downtown Tillamook construction to begin after Labor Day By Jeannell Wyntergreen, Tillamook County Pioneer - July 19, 2016 - July 20, 2016

TILLAMOOK, Ore. – Last week, the Oregon Department of Transportation held its kick-off pre-construction meeting with Oregon State Bridge Construction, the company recently awarded the contract for the Highway 101/6 project. ODOT indicated that they have had very successful working relationships with OSBC on multiple projects around the state.

About 30 people attended the meeting, including representatives from ODOT, its consultants, City of Tillamook, Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce, OSBC and Just Bucket, the contractor’s excavating sub. OSBC presented a 60-day schedule indicating that it will mobilize to the job site on Aug. 9 during Tillamook County Fair Week. The company has not selected its precise job site staging area, but hopes to have that figured out in the near future. Initial work will occur by the Hoquarton Slough; construction in the downtown area will not begin until after Labor Day.

Bypass savings allocated for second phase land purchase Newberg Graphic - June 22, 2016

The second phase of the Newberg-Dundee bypass project came a step closer to fruition last week with its addition into a state transportation funding program.

The Oregon Transportation Commission, a citizen policy-setting body for transportation projects statewide, voted June 16 to add the next phase of the bypass to the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and to allocate some funding toward the first steps on Phase 2.

About $10.5 million in savings on Phase 1 construction has been earmarked for what Newberg Mayor Bob Andrews described as “seed money” for the right-of-way purchase required for the next phase, which would run from the Phase 1 terminus at Highway 219 north to Highway 99W near the base of Rex Hill.

Construction work planned for 99W in Newberg KOIN.com - June 21, 2016

Be on the lookout for nighttime lane closures on 99W in Newberg during the week of June 20. ODOT is working on part of the Newberg-Dundee Bypass Phase 1 Project. Crews will close one eastbound lane of 99W east of Springbrook Road for a few nights. They’ll also close one westbound lane for a couple of nights. The work will happen between the hours of 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. More extensive nighttime work will happen there in late summer.

Late this summer, crews will widen the road, adding new turn lanes that would connect drivers on 99W to the Newberg-Dundee Bypass using Springbrook Road. Delays should be minimal, but the construction area will shift frequently and striping on the roadway will change often. The project will extend from 99W at Springbrook in Newberg to south of Dundee and will be completed in late 2017.

Highway 101/6 Project Update: Stayton contractor ‘apparent low bidder’ for highway construction By Jeannell Wyntergreen, Tillamook County Pioneer - May 27, 2016 - May 31, 2016

The results are in. Bids for ODOT’s U.S. Highway 101/Highway 6 Traffic Safety Improvement Project were opened yesterday, and the “apparent low bidder” is Oregon State Bridge Construction, Inc., located out of Stayton. The company’s bid of $18,844,081.85 is slightly higher than the engineer’s estimate, but the lowest of seven bidders, who topped out at close to $25.5 million.

Oregon State Bridge is called the “apparent low bidder” because there is still a process to go through to make sure that all of its paperwork is in order and there weren’t any irregularities before it is given the official contract award. Following that, a contract needs to be developed prior to Oregon State Bridge being issued a Notice to Proceed.

Details are set for road design - May 4, 2016

Final plans have been approved that pave the way to build the eastern terminus of the Newberg-Dundee bypass, under the new design agreed upon earlier this spring.

Wilsonville Road will not intersect with Highway 219 directly across from the end of the bypass, as originally proposed, but will instead link up with the highway via a new road connection south of Wynooski Road. This design came about after a long battle between multiple jurisdictions, that came down to concerns over increased traffic utilizing Wilsonville Road as a cut-through from the bypass to I-5, versus concerns that altering the design would dump the traffic increases onto Newberg’s side streets.
