ODOT Funds Talent Traffic Studies
The Oregon Department of Transportation is funding and managing three traffic studies for the Talent area; an overall transportation-needs update, a look at how Interstate 5ís exit 21 works and conceptual plans to accommodate traffic in future growth areas.
The update of the Transportation System Plan is expected to be complete by this summer. The Interchange Area Management Plan for Exit 21 to determine how itís going to function for the next 20 years is just getting underway.
The conceptual planning will address the road systems needed to service two urban reserve areas on the north end of Talent slated for development. Work is just beginning on the growth plan and is targeted for completion by the summer of 2015.
