STIP projects out for public review The list of Rogue Valley projects for the 2015-2018 State Transportation Improvement Program is out for review. The STIP is ODOT’s short-term capital improvement program developed through the coordinated efforts of ODOT, federal and local governments, ACTs, tribal governments and the public.

Several pedestrian-related crashes have occurred on Lozier Lane between West Main and Stewart Avenue. Linn Road: between Oregon 62 and Buchanan (Eagle Point) — This project would widen Linn Road to accommodate sidewalks and bike lanes. Oregon 99: Twin Creeks Rail crossing (Central Point) — This project will add a new multimodal access route into the Twin Creeks Transit Oriented Development from Oregon 99. Currently, Pine Street is the sole, congested access.

Table Rock Road: I-5 to Biddle — Upgrades to this two-lane route south of Biddle Road would include a center turn lane, sidewalks and bike lanes.

I-5: Medford Viaduct Environmental Study — Building upon the facility study already on schedule, this would connect that with the environmental study.

Lozier Lane (Medford) — Improvements to this one-time rural road are needed due to its narrow width, with no sidewalks or bike lanes.

RVTD Passenger Fare Collection — RVTD would upgrade to an electronic fare system, improving traffic flow and bus schedules.
