Summer 2013 Road Projects

« Back to the June 2013 edition

Highlighting more than 100 work zones on the state’s roads, the 2013 Oregon Road Projects map is your resource for smooth and safe travel this summer. Available for free at DMV field offices, ODOT offices and visitor centers around the state, the complete version is also available online on the ODOT website.

For current road conditions, including construction activity, call 511 or go online to TripCheck.com. A quick

visit can help you avoid traffic congestion, work zone delays, or hazardous road conditions.

“The Oregon Road Projects map is a handy guide that helps motorists as they plan ahead for extended trips,” said ODOT Regional Traffic Safety Coordinator Rosalee Senger. “We want people prepared as they encounter work zones during the busy summer construction period.”

According to Senger, distracted driving is the most common cause of work zone crashes. Drivers and passengers — not workers — make up most work zone fatalities. Six people lost their lives in work zone crashes in 2012.

“It is so important to eliminate distractions before you travel,” Senger said. “Be sure important items such as maps and sunglasses are within easy reach.

“And always pull over to a safe place to use your cell phone.”

Work Zone Driving Tips

  • Pay attention to driving, especially in the transition zone before the work area.
  • Orange (signs, cones, barrels and barricades) is your clue to slow down. Speeding is the second most common cause of work zone crashes.
  • Don’t tailgate. Double the distance you follow a vehicle.
  • Don’t wait to the last second. Get in the correct lane well in advance. Work zone traffic lanes often are narrow, without shoulders or emergency lanes. Also, be aware of temporary accesses on either side of the roadway.
  • Expect delays — plan for them and leave early so you can drive safely through the work zone.
  • Patience and courtesy are important.
  • Avoid work zones when you can by using a different route.
  • Know before you go. Call 511 or visit TripCheck.com to check routes, work zones and road and weather conditions before you leave.
