ODOT’s dedication to reducing crashes led to improvements at the SR 94 and Granger Road intersection. ODOT wanted to reduce intersection conflict points and crashes through construction of a roundabout. Our team completed an Alternatives Evaluation Report that investigated three location options for the proposed roundabout. ODOT selected the existing intersection site. The project involved relocating a stream using natural channel design. Plans replaced one culvert with a three-sided culvert on the new stream alignment and extended the second culvert.
Crews completed most of the construction when the nearby school was not in session. Use of a stamping and coloring technique, decorative rocks, and low-growing plants enhanced the roundabout center and islands. LED lighting also was added. ODOT’s close partnership with our team led to a much safer and efficient intersection. The project is helping the state achieve its mission of reducing crashes.
