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.

Five Woodburn nonagenarians watch construction for fun - July 21, 2014
