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 talks move forward By Colin Staub, Newberg Graphic - February 10, 2016

A Feb. 2 letter from the Ladd Hill Neighborhood Association made several demands of the Oregon Department of Transportation before the proposed mitigation talks could get underway.

At issue is the controversial eastern terminus of the Newberg-Dundee bypass, which as designed would allow traffic to travel straight from the bypass onto Wilsonville Road and vice versa.

Planning commission lauded for bypass proposal By Colin Staub, Newberg Graphic - January 27, 2016

The Newberg planning commission may have done the impossible: through its decision earlier this month, it possibly has managed to bring all parties involved with the Newberg-Dundee bypass and Wilsonville Road controversy into a tentative state of agreement on the next step of action.

This means that, for the time being, there is less talk of lawsuits, less talk of state intervention and instead something approaching consensus that mitigation is the best path forward.

More early-morning bypass work looms By Colin Staub, Newberg Graphic - December 30, 2015

Work on the Newberg-Dundee bypass project will once again begin in the early hours of the morning, although the reason behind the scheduling is different than it was during the summer.

The Newberg City Council approved a noise variance request from the Oregon Department of Transportation at the council meeting in early December. The variance allows ODOT to work at night as needed until the bypass is projected to be complete in 2017.
