MEDFORD, Ore. — A multi-million dollar project is hoping to relieve congestion and increase safety along Highway 62.
The project is proposing a couple of changes from exit 30 to east Dutton Road. The Oregon Department of Transportation has been working on the design phase since 2004 and now they need your input.
A 45 day public comment period starts Friday. ODOT officials recieved 120 million dollars of funding from the Jobs and Transportation Act to start the first two phases from Whittle Avenue to Corey Road.
The design plan suggests adding some pedestrian signals, sidewalks, extra lanes and an expressway. Construction is expected to start in 2014. ODOT is hosting an open house for the public at the Jackson County Parks Auditorium on October 17, 2012 at 5 p.m.
