Eugene area construction update

Expect paving on both Delta Highway and Beltline in August

EUGENE – Delta Highway will be paved between I-105 and Goodpasture Island Road.  Work begins Sunday, Aug. 16 on the eastbound I-105 ramp to northbound Delta Highway and will continue nightly though the week. Construction hours are 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. and wraps up Friday morning, Aug. 21.

Traffic will be detoured from the I-105 ramp on Sunday night. The remainder of the week, expect single lane closures in the work zone as the project moves through the area.

The section from Goodpasture Island Road to the interchange will be paved next year. 


Beltline paving

Beltline Highway is scheduled to be paved from just south of Roosevelt Blvd to West 11th Ave the week of Aug. 24, at night, 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.  Expect single lane traffic and delays up to 20 minutes.

The OR 99 and Northwest Expressway interchange ramps will also be paved in September.


Beltline/Delta Interchange Project

The northbound Delta Highway to eastbound Beltline Highway detour ends in mid-August and the ramp to eastbound Beltline opens. Thank you for your patience and awareness of other travelers.

Work continues on the new overpass to westbound Beltline Highway, and begins on the new intersection for traffic coming from eastbound Beltline to Delta Highway.

I-105

Construction is on schedule to be complete in fall 2020.  Work continues on the eastbound lanes. All traffic remains in the westbound lanes over the Willamette River until mid-September.

The southbound Delta Highway/Valley River Center on-ramp to westbound I-105 is open. Watch for merging traffic. The eastbound I-105 exit to northbound Delta Highway is also open. Slow down and exit carefully as you leave I-105. The angle is a little different from the construction lane.  Remember to slow down approaching and through the work zone so everyone can get through safely.

Highway 58 Paving

The Willamette Highway will be paved between Goshen and Pleasant Hill beginning in mid-August through the end of September. Paving will be Sunday through Thursday nights. Right now several pedestrian ramps and crossings are being reconstructed to meet current Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. New waterproof membranes will be installed on two of the smaller bridges on the west end in late August. Traffic will be controlled by flaggers and a pilot car.  Expect delays up to 20 minutes.

Summer is a great time to ride a bike or walk to work to avoid traffic. If you do drive, slow down, be safe and patient, and please watch for crews in work zones. We want everyone to stay safe and make it home.
