Construction Work Continues - Foothill Road (Delta Waters Rd - Dry Cr Rd)

Our contractor, Knife River Materials, began work on this portion of Foothill Road on Monday, January 30, 2023.  Work is having significant impacts on traffic and delays are frequent.  Please consider using alternate routes to avoid the work areas - this will not only keep you safer, but will also help improve safety for the construction crews working on this project.  Thru traffic is not advised and will be difficult due to construction and necessary delays.

NOTE: The City of Medford is also constructing a project on another portion of Foothill Road between Delta Waters Road and Hillcrest Road.  In most sections between Delta Waters and Hillcrest, the current two-lane roadway will be widened to five lanes (which includes the center turn lane) as well as curb, gutter, sidewalks and bike lanes.  The Medford project will also construct a new 1,000-foot section of South Stage Road connecting to North Phoenix Road.

The improved section of Foothill Road from Delta Waters to Dry Creek will consist of two 11-foot travel lanes with 7-foot shoulders on each side of the roadway.  The project will smooth out curves, improve sight distance, and widen the road.  Left turn lanes will be installed at Dry Creek Road, Coker Butte Road, and Devil’s Garden Road.

For the latest information regarding project updates and upcoming closures, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) has created a project page at where information will be kept up-to-date.
