This project will provide intersection safety improvements at 12 major intersections on SE Tillstrom Road, SE Wiese Road, SE 222nd Dr. and SE 242nd Ave., and enhanced curve warning signs along SE 222nd Dr. and SE Wiese Road in the Damascus area. A new overhead flashing beacon will be installed at the intersection of SE 222nd Dr. and SE Tillstrom Road. Overall this project will bring about 330 new safety signs to the Damascus area.

Updated: April 1, 2021
These safety improvements are expected to provide:
- 20–35% reduction in fatal and serious injury-causing crashes from adding curve warning signs
- 20–30% reduction in intersection crashes by enhancing intersection warning signs
For more information on curve warning signs, read the ODOT Fact Sheet on Updated Curve Warning Signs. For more information on intersection safety, read the ODOT Fact Sheet on Basic Intersection Safety Improvements.
To provide a safer roadway for all users and to reduce crashes.
