Next time you drive through a construction zone, think about how long it takes to move a project from conception to completion. 

And while you're at it, think about the safety considerations that go into the mix. 

ODOT, the Oregon Department of Transportation, has a safety action plan to complement its overall transportation plan. 

And ODOT is taking input on the safety plan at a series of meetings around the state. 

We hear what kind of input is being sought, and how the input is used.  

PUBLIC MEETINGS, per ODOT:

  • Dec 3 - Phoenix/Talent - Jackson County Fire District 5/5811 S. Pacific Highway, 8:30 AM-Noon
  • Dec 10 - Coos Bay - Coquille Tribe Plankhouse/1050 Plankhouse Loop Rd., 1 PM-4:30 PM
  • Dec 11 - Eugene- Public Library/100 W. 10th St., 8:30 AM-Noon
