The proposed project is located on US-20 (OR-16) beginning at approximately milepost (MP) 74.50 (west of Santiam Junction) and ending at MP 88.19 (Jack Lake Road). This section of highway is a major pass and freight route between the Willamette Valley and Central Oregon. The pavement condition on this section of the roadway has declined, showing fatigue and longitudinal cracking as well as significant wear from snow plowing and the shoulders also have significant cracking. This project will improve the pavement condition, ride and extend the life of the facility by milling and inlaying 2” of new asphalt wearing surface for the full width of the existing roadway. New striping, centerline rumble strips, and edge line rumble strips will also be installed. Other project work includes replacement of substandard guardrail terminals, signage, and bridge deck and joint improvements at the Lake Creek Bridge (MP 87.07). Night time lane closures are planned for milling and paving work. The Hogg Rock Quarry (MP 79.70) is a prospective material source for aggregate needed for asphalt production. The Big Lake Site (MP 79.92) is a prospective stockpile and processing site for the project. Both sites are located within the project limits.
