Project Description

This project will improve safety across the county by upgrading curve warning signs to national standards.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has issued updated standards for curve warning signs. The new standards use modern technology to measure safe speeds. They account for changes in vehicle safety and driving habits.

All curve signs on highways across the country must meet these new standards by 2021.

Traffic Impacts

In some locations, construction may require lane closures with flaggers to direct traffic. There may be delays of up to 15 minutes at times.

The Oregon Department of Transportation has produced a video about their own effort to meet the new FHWA standards on state highways:
