Roads

Construction Sign AThe eastern end of Coker Butte Road in Medford will be temporarily closed to thru traffic beginning Monday, June 10, 2024.  The closure will last approximately five weeks through July 16 as the roadway is reconstructed with its connection with Foothill Road.  Traffic will not be able to utilize this intersection, however Foothill Road will remain open during this phase for north/south bound travelers.  Expect significant delays on Foothill Road as traffic is controlled through a very active construction area.

A map is available here showing the closure area as well as detour routes.

Improvements to this section of road will include the widening of road shoulders as well as creation of a new dedicated left-turn lane for traffic on Foothill Road turning left onto Coker Butte Road.  All of these changes will improve safety in the area.

Coker Butte View CEmergency services agencies have been notified of the closure.  The designated detour route includes the use of East Vilas Road, Crater Lake Avenue and Delta Waters Road if needed.
