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.

Bypass work continues to progress By Colin Staub, Newberg Graphic - November 25, 2015

Neighbors in south Newberg don’t need to be told that construction on the Newberg-Dundee bypass is intensifying, as the noise, mud and earth-shaking machinery are a reminder enough. In the coming months, though, neighbors in other areas should prepare for more of the same.

Springbrook Construction Starts this Spring - November 18, 2015

Improvements will be made on OR 219, OR 99W (at Springbrook) and Springbrook Road. Springbrook Road is currently two lanes, one in each direction. The road will be widened to add a center turn lane and a multi-purpose path on both side of the the road. A City water line will also be relocated and upsized under Springbrook Road. The construction will begin in spring 2016 and take approximately 18 months to complete. For more information, please see the Fall 2015 newsletter. More information will be available closer to construction.

Bypass future uncertain as project gets federal attention By Colin Staub, Newberg Graphic - November 18, 2015 - November 18, 2015

An amendment designating the Newberg-Dundee bypass as a “high-priority corridor” has been included in the transportation reauthorization package under consideration by Congress, potentially giving the project more leverage in seeking future funding.

Rep. Suzanne Bonamici offered the amendment to House Resolution 22, naming the full bypass route from Newberg to Dayton as a high-priority corridor. It would join just two other Oregon roads, I-5 and U.S. Route 395 in eastern Oregon, that carry the priority distinction.

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader will speak in Woodburn later this month, at an event commemorating the completion of the Woodburn Interstate 5 Interchange Project.
