Rep. Post Obtains ODOT Commitment to Improve Dangerous Hwy 219/McKay Road Intersection.

State Representative Bill Post expressed concern about the dangerous Hwy 219/McKay Road intersection today at a meeting with the Director of the Oregon Department of Transportation, Matt Garrett.    Following the meeting, Director Garrett has directed the ODOT Highway Division Administrator and ODOT Region 2 professionals to engage and address the challenges on that piece of roadway in the immediate, mid and long-term.

By end of the day Friday, April 5th,  ODOT plans to have on the ground visible safety features, (variable message signs, additional signage, other features) that will alert drivers to the intersection.  ODOT will also begin working with Marion County on additional traffic safety solutions for the mid and long-term.
