Medford, OR – According to the statement, these cameras are among a series of improvements between St. Helens Road and Tualatin Valley Highway, OR 8.
Officials also said that this project marks the first major upgrades since March 2021 when ODOT took over operation of 8.1 miles of the road from Multnomah and Washington counties.
The new cameras are mounted on a pole in the S curve, one camera pointed north, one pointed south.
The cameras are live here along with other sensors mounted on the pole, including a wind speed gauge, and air temperature and humidity sensors.
New traffic signal controllers and vehicle detection equipment have been put in place along Cornelius Pass Road at the signalized intersections between Northwest West Union Road and Southeast Lois Street.
The upgraded traffic signal equipment and additional detectors allow the agencies to continuously evaluate signal performance, which will improve safety and travel efficiency.
