How state intends to fix Hwy. 20 junctions

Written November 18th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

ODOT is inching ahead with plans for safety upgrades on the Albany-Corvallis Highway, and here is the agency’s concept for improving the junctions at Granger Road and Independence Highway.


Welcome to Albany: Sign’s getting replaced

Written July 2nd, 2019 by Hasso Hering

Chances are drivers heading for the Ellsworth Street bridge on Highway 20 don’t need a sign to tell them they are entering Albany. But whether they do or don’t, the sign welcoming them to town is gone.

Written August 8th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

Lane closures that caused unusual traffic slowdowns on Albany’s downtown Highway 20 couplet Wednesday should be a thing of the past, for this year anyway.


Trouble spot on 20 waits for a fix

Written August 22nd, 2017 by Hasso Hering

This is where Independence Highway runs into U.S. 20, the Albany Corvallis Highway. It’s a tricky place for making left turns on to 20, toward Albany, as one of these trucks is waiting to do.
