The I-5 Kuebler Interchange project is located at the interchange of Interstate 5 at Kuebler Blvd. The project includes two phases:

Phase 1 will upgrade the existing interchange to support the area's planned expansion. The project is upgrading the interchange by adding new southbound on- and off-ramps and a third southbound lane between Kuebler Blvd. and Battle Creek Rd.

Phase 2 includes construction of a sound wall to mitigate noise impacts from I-5. ODOT will build a sound wall along the west side of I-5 between the Kuebler Blvd. interchange and the Battle Creek Rd. overcrossing.

Benefits

Kuebler Boulevard is a major east-west corridor for the City of Salem, and the interchange provides a critical link to Interstate 5. The Mill Creek Corporate Center (MCCC), located northeast of the interchange, 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. The interchange does not have sufficient capacity to support additional vehicle and freight traffic that will be generated by the redevelopment. This project will improve capacity.

Interchange construction is complete. The sound wall bid and construction is underway with clearing and grubbing. During project development, the team decided that it would be best to preclude the contractor from starting wall construction until June to avoid building the maintenance road when the soils were too wet. Based on the amount of time we felt was needed to construct the wall, the team decided to extend the contract completion date into 2018..
