Kershaw Road - Right Turn ONLY at Hwy 140 Crossing

With the opening of the new Highway 140 roundabout at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Foothill Road, a historical highway crossing at Kershaw Road has now been eliminated;  Kershaw Road traffic is no longer allowed to go straight through the intersection and directly cross the highway, or to make a left turn onto the highway.  To put it another way, if you are traveling on Kershaw Road and approach Highway 140, your only option now is to make a right turn.  FYI - Highway 140 traffic is still allowed to make left turns onto Kershaw Road.

This crossing had been used by many motorists, especially during the morning and evening commute times for traffic between Medford and the White City/Eagle Point areas.  Now, motorists should make use of the Foothill Road extension which runs north of Corey Road as well as the Atlantic Avenue connection to Highway 140. 

Use caution and follow all traffic laws as motorists get used to these new routes and turning movement restrictions.

If you have any questions about the new county roadway signage or functions please contact us.
