LA GRANDE, Ore. – We are constructing over three-dozen key highway projects this year in eastern Oregon to fix pavement, sidewalks and bridges to make the highways safer and extend the life of the transportation system. Below is a list of these activities, along with anticipated traffic impacts. Please remember to watch for crews, equipment and flaggers, and to be prepared to slow down or stop when you see those orange cones and construction signs.
Distracted or inattentive driving and speed remain primary causes of crashes, so please put cell phones and other distractions away, and ease up on the gas. Although traffic volumes are down from last summer due to the pandemic, there have been recent incidents of speeding on highways and in work zones. We want you and our crews to all get home safely at the end of the day. Stay safe and watch out for crews and equipment. Traffic fines double in all work zones
Highway project information is sorted by county area, with interstates and U.S. highways listed first, followed by state routes. The anticipated traffic impacts are listed in bold type. Location information is listed via milepost number for the highway section, with local crossroads/landmarks identified. Construction timeframes are estimates and subject to change.
Additional updates will be shared throughout the construction season. For more information on key projects visit www.tinyurl.com/odot-region5 or contact Tom Strandberg at 541-963-1330 email@example.com .
