Beltline/Delta and Beltline/River Road main topic at this Thursday’s SCCO meeting

Come to our March 7th meeting to get the most recent updates regarding improvements along Beltline Highway from Delta Highway to River Road. ODOT will begin construction to reconfigure the Delta/Beltline interchange in 2020. The SCCO meeting is Thursday, March 7 at 7 PM at Messiah Lutheran Church, 3280 River Road, Eugene, 97404

WHY IS THIS PROJECT NEEDED? Beltline Highway from Delta Highway to River Road is one of the most congested places in the Eugene/Springfield area. The Beltline Highway Facility Plan recommends several projects to improve safety and mobility in this area. Together, these projects would widen the Beltline Highway to three lanes in each direction from River Road to Delta Highway, replace the River Avenue/Division Avenue interchange, and add a new local bridge north of the highway.

BELTLINE: DELTA HIGHWAY TO RIVER ROAD Building on the 2014 Beltline Highway Facility Plan, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is working to improve safety and mobility on the Randy Papé Beltline Highway between Delta Highway and River Road. The Beltline Highway Facility Plan recommends several projects to improve safety and travel times in the area. Work is underway to lay the groundwork for these construction improvements, to be ready when funding is available.

ODOT will begin construction to reconfigure the Delta/ Beltline Highway Interchange in 2020. The interchange will be reconstructed as a partial cloverleaf to improve safety by eliminating merging and weaving issues on the two intersecting highways. Visit the project website to learn more about the design how it fits in the overall concept for the Beltline corridor.
