A safety project wrapped up on Interstate 5 just north of the Oregon-California border that has installed permanent lights, a TripCheck camera and a new ‘Welcome to Oregon’ sign.

According to ODOT District Manager Jerry Marmon, the project placed ten permanent lights at the northbound chain up area to aid motorists. Federal stimulus funded the $257,000 safety project, which also provides electrical conduit that Caltrans can use to power a variable message sign for motorists entering California.

“This was a much needed project for motorist safety,” said Marmon. “We’ve needed lights and power at this location for a long time. The design team did a great job incorporating a new welcoming sign as well as adding a new TripCheck camera into the project.”
