Crews Set to Lay Down Durable Striping on I-5 in Oregon

Each section of the project includes northbound and southbound lanes.

Freeway striping

(SALEM, Ore.) - Oregon Department of Transportation road crews will be repainting the white fog lines and the yellow barrier lines on Interstate 5 between Salem and Cottage Grove from July 9 through late August.

To minimize traffic disruptions, the crews will work at “off-peak” hours – between 9:00 PM and 5:00 AM, Monday through Thursday, with an occasional Sunday shift.

The striping truck, which moves at about 6 mph, will apply a durable layer of thermoplastic material to the existing fog and barrier lines. The truck will impede one lane at a time. Motorists will be forewarned of the operation with multiple vehicles carrying lighted message boards tailing the truck at well-spaced intervals.

The project will begin Monday night with crews working between the North Jefferson Interchange at milepoint 244 and milepoint 233 south of Millersburg.

Once that section is complete, the crews will move south and work between the Brownsville/Halsey Interchange at milepoint 216 and the Eugene-Springfield area at milepoint 198.

From there, crews will tackle the section of I-5 between Eugene and Cottage Grove before finishing up with the last section between the Hayesville Interchange near milepoint 258 and the North Jefferson Interchange.

Each section of the project includes northbound and southbound lanes.

The work is weather-dependent, and cannot be done in the rain. Crews will not apply the thermoplastic in active construction zones.

ODOT asks motorists to be on the lookout for the road-striping crews for the next five to six weeks and proceed with caution through the work areas.
