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.

The Weekly Highway 101/6 Project News Bulletin Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce - September 26, 2016

The Chamber’s presentation to the City Council regarding the Temporary Parking Plan for the next two construction years was very productive.  The draft was reshaped from some 20 possible policy and implementation action items down to 15 that are both cost efficient and doable.   Most measures were adopted that night for immediate implementation while some will require additional Council resolutions to change previous policies.

The overall plan is depicted in this link Temporary Parking Plan which shows where new on-street parking will be developed and additional inventories of off-street parking will be made available.  The next step is securing locations for additional directional signage to ensure that the traveling public passing through the project can find places to stop and patronize our downtown businesses.  

The Chamber will be developing various informational products to advertise the parking opportunities that will be available during the construction period.  One outlet is this bulletin, but there will be multiple additional digital and on-street outreach efforts to make our available parking easily obvious to our customers.

The Weekly Highway 101/6 Project News Bulletin Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce - September 19, 2016

As the contractor continues with installation of temporary signals and other preparatory efforts, we are beginning to see more excavation and drainage work starting to occur, along with the removal of the old bridge supports and installation of the temporary work bridge.  The one lane closures have been intermittent and brought about by a combination of the contractor’s intersection signalization and City’s Waterline work.  This week’s three week look-ahead from the contractor didn’t have too many major changes other than the fact that the closure of the Second Street Plaza has been bumped to the first week of October.

The Weekly Highway Project News Bulletin Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce - September 8, 2016

Now that Labor Day has come and gone, the City of Tillamook is finally fully involved in the US 101/OR 6 Highway Intersection Project.  The reader board signs are up, the warnings about night work have been circulated, and the men in orange vests and hard hats are cropping up everywhere.  It is time for this bulletin to go weekly.

Every Tuesday, except for delays during holidays, we will be receiving the contractor’s schedule revisions with all of their proposed activities for the following three weeks.

The big heads up for the downtown businesses is that the full closure of Second Street between Main and Pacific is scheduled to start on September 26th, the same time that sidewalk demo work on the westside of Pacific Avenue from 4th to 3rd will commence. The full closure will allow for the total demolition of Second Street and its sidewalks. While vehicles will be prohibited, one access point for pedestrians will be maintained for Second Street businesses which do not have an alternative access off of another street.

Work to begin after Labor Day Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce - September 1, 2016

The ‘Meet The Contractor’ event last Tuesday was a great launch point for the 33 million dollar Highway 101/6 Project with business owners taking the opportunity to rub elbows with the friendly folks from Oregon State Bridge Construction (OSBC) and ask some direct questions while grabbing a free Pelican Pub/Creamery Association rootbeer float at the same time.

One of the critical announcements at that event was OSBC’s unveiling of their two-year construction schedule, which is presented in a simplified form on the following pages for your review as to how it might affect your operations.  Please remember that the dates are approximate and may change with circumstances.  We will be receiving a three-week ‘look-ahead’ schedule at the regular construction meetings and will try to keep you posted on key changes as the project proceeds.  Click here for Hwy 101/6 Schedule

Bypass work reaches 'peak' this summer Newberg Graphic - August 17, 2016

'Aggressive' amount of work underway, while right of way roadblocks remain

Whether it’s the increase in traffic delays, more trucks motoring through neighborhoods or the occasional 2 a.m. concrete pour, the Newberg-Dundee bypass project has been making its presence felt in recent months.

“This summer is really the peak of the bypass construction,” Oregon Department of Transportation spokesman Lou Torres said Monday. “We’ve got work going everywhere.”

During the fall, possibly in September, crews will be paving the west end of the bypass near Dundee, which is a substantial finishing touch on that section.

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

KOIN.com
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.
