We are designing roadway improvements on OR 99E through the City of Halsey. The project will cover nearly a mile starting at American Drive passing through downtown and ending south of the Railroad Tracks.

Purpose and Need

The road is in poor condition resulting in a rough ride. Curb ramps do not meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards. Stormwater from the highway is not captured adequately.


This project will do a combination of repairing and rebuilding the roadway for a smoother ride quality. It will also upgrade the corridor for safer walking and biking and improve stormwater drainage.


Estimated project cost is $15 million for design and construction.

Project Elements

Proposed project elements include a combination of repairing and rebuilding the roadway and replacing sidewalks and bike lanes on OR 99E through downtown Halsey.

Roadway Improvements

Drawing: damaged roadway

Rebuilding the roadway in place of damaged concrete roadway panels.

Upgrades the road’s poor condition to provide a smooth, finished driving surface.

Drawing: turn lanes

Center turn lane.

Maintains a separate lane in the middle of a two-way road for drivers turning left. Allows dedicated left-turn space at downtown intersections to improve safety.

Drawing: truck on road

Building intersections that accommodate truck traffic where appropriate.

Drawing: stormwater treatment

Stormwater treatment.

Improves the quality of runoff water in nearby streams by filtering out road debris and other harmful substances.

Drawing: trees and plants
