We are realigning the intersection and installing a traffic signal where Main Street (Nehalem Highway OR-47) meets Banks Road and Cedar Canyon Road. This will help address needs of future development and growth in east Banks. This project is identified in the City of Banks Transportation System Plan.
The project team evaluated both a traffic signal and a roundabout. Impacts to commercial and residential properties and impacts to wetlands were considered. A traffic signal was selected by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the County as the best alternative.
Construction start (expected): Spring 2024
Construction finish (expected): Fall 2024
