Starting in 2022, the Oregon Department of Transportation will repair and upgrade hundreds of sidewalk curb ramps along state highways in several communities in Umatilla, Morrow, Wallowa and Baker counties.
The work is part of a statewide effort to bring curb ramps into compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act standards to improve mobility and safety.
To provide updated information and collect your feedback, ODOT is holding an online open house from June 4 through June 18. During this time, visit the ODOT website. Residents and businesses in the communities listed below are encouraged to review project information, maps, photos and videos. Please also submit your questions and feedback after reviewing the information.
Most of these projects are being designed this year, and construction will begin in 2022. You can also learn about projects we are currently constructing in the area. We appreciate your comments that will help us build a better, safer transportation system for everyone.
Eastern Oregon communities that are part of this 2022 construction project include Pendleton, Pilot Rock, Ukiah, Milton-Freewater, Helix, Athena, Wallowa, Lostine, Joseph, Heppner, Ione, Lexington and Baker City.
