Oregon 140: Exit 35 to Blackwell Road — This project would add a center turn lane, widen shoulders and add a bike lane to Oregon 140 north of Central Point.
Table Rock Road: I-5 to Biddle — Upgrades to this two-lane route south of Biddle Road would include a center turn lane, sidewalks and bike lanes.
Lozier Lane (Medford) — Improvements to this one-time rural road are needed due to its narrow width, with no sidewalks or bike lanes. Several pedestrian-related crashes have occurred on Lozier Lane between West Main and Stewart Avenue.
Linn Road: between Oregon 62 and Buchanan (Eagle Point) — This project would widen Linn Road to accommodate sidewalks and bike lanes.
Oregon 99: Twin Creeks Rail crossing (Central Point) — This project will add a new multimodal access route into the Twin Creeks Transit Oriented Development from Oregon 99. Currently, Pine Street is the sole, congested access.
I-5: Medford Viaduct Environmental Study — Building upon the facility study already on schedule, this would connect that with the environmental study.
RVTD Passenger Fare Collection — RVTD would upgrade to an electronic fare system, improving traffic flow and bus schedules.
