Want to know where and when you may encounter orange cones and work zones as you travel around the state this summer? The Oregon Department of Transportation is distributing the Summer 2007 Road Projects map so motorists can plan ahead and be prepared.
With 108 projects listed on the map, Oregon is experiencing of the busiest construction seasons in recent years. The increased activity is fueled in part by the Oregon Transportation Investment Acts. The Oregon Legislature passed a series of funding packages that raised $2.96 billion for highway and bridge construction work. OTIA funding is contributing to 30 projects around the state.
More projects on the road also means more work zones. When driving through a work zone, motorists are reminded to slow down, be alert for changes to traffic patterns, and be aware of workers and equipment.
The construction map is a helpful guide for general information about construction activity. For current road conditions, including construction activity, log on to www.TripCheck.com or call 511.
The Summer 2007 Road Projects map is available at several locations around the state, including Driver and Motor Vehicle Services offices, truck stops, welcome centers, and ODOT offices.
