OR99: Enid Rd - Washington/Jefferson Eugene (Project completed)

Completed: Yes
Jurisdiction: Oregon Dept. of Transportation (ODOT) Mode: Road
Description: This project accomplishes the following: Pavement inlay from Washington St to Garfield St, and from Roosevelt to Enid Rd. Repairs deck on bridge crossing CORP Rail line on OR99 Widens the sidewalk on the bridge Adds safety improvements at 7th and Garfield Reassigns a lane at 7th and Washington with new sign bridge Changes signal heads at OR99/Fairfield, OR99/Royal to flashing yellow for left turns Adds audio to signals at Royal, Fairfield, and Garfield.
Timeline: Summer 2011 - Fall 2012
Traffic Impacts: ODOT has worked with the City of Eugene to identify alternate routes that can be used during construction. While the alternate routes will be signed for convenience, they are not required detours. ODOT anticipates local motorists, including freight haulers, will find suitable choices for alternate routes during periods of high traffic volumes and delays. It is important to know that no business will lose its access, but some properties with multiple accesses may see that number temporarily reduced during construction. It is also important to note that alternate routes will likely be necessary for truck access to light industrial areas. The number of traffic lanes and the width of the traffic lanes will be reduced in order to complete construction. Because congestion will be heavy, creating over capacity conditions during peak travel times, motorists should expect lengthy delays and allow for longer drive times. Transit customers should be aware that construction will likely change bus routes and pickup times and locations. Visit www.ltd.org for the latest schedule changes.
Work Schedule:

Construction will  begin this summer and continue through September, 2011. The project will again start up next spring and conclude in the fall of 2012. During this time, different phases of construction will result in access changes and mobility impacts along the project corridor. The construction season will begin with work on OR 99 between Roosevelt and the north end of the West 6th/West 7th Avenue couplet including:

  • A reduction of lanes and shift of traffic onto the west side of the highway while excavating and rebuilding the east side.
  • Restricted left turns at the north end of the couplet.
  • Flagger control at intersections, driveways and truck crossings.

By mid-to-late summer, we will shift traffic onto the east side of the highway and rebuild the west side. Turn movement restrictions near the couplet and flagging control   intersections, driveways and truck crossings will continue. Final top lift of pavement and pavement striping should be completed for the first season  by the end of September.

Funding:

Approximately 89.73% of the $3.964 million is federal funding.  Approximately 10.27% of the contract amount is state funding.
