Local Roads Roadway Departure Project
Marion County has received State funds to improve safety for the motoring public on various county roads. Construction is expected to begin mid-June with work being complete by August 30, 2018. Roads will remain open during construction, but expect intermittent lane closures with flaggers directing traffic through work areas, which may result in congestion.
The project will include installation of ground-in centerline rumble strips, recessed reflective pavement markers, and new centerline striping on the following roadway corridors:
McKay/Yergen/Ehlen Road, from OR-219 to the Aurora Bridge (#17480)
Butteville Road, from Schuler Road NE to OR-219, omitting the segment within Donald city limits
Howell Prairie Road, from OR-99 to Silver Falls Highway
Silverton Road, from Cordon Road to 220’ west of Fosholm Road
Cordon Road, from Hazelgreen Road to Caplinger Road
Cascade Highway, from Paradise Alley Road to 330’ north of 5th Street
The following corridors will receive recessed reflective pavement markers and profiled thermoplastic center line and edge line striping:
Abiqua Road, from OR-213 to Milk Ranch Road
Orville/Vitae Springs Road, from River Road S to Skyline Road
