In 2017 the City of Corvallis rolled out a pilot project to allow painted intersection projects in Corvallis residential neighborhoods. The Jobs Addition Neighborhood Association completed work on the first-ever painted intersection on July 30, 2017. As a pilot project, the City will evaluate the outcome and use that information to determine how future painted intersection projects will be designed, installed and maintained, while also ensuring that the City will not incur long-term costs and that the public-right-of-way is protected.

Painted Intersection Pilot Project

"The Eclipse Rides through Corvallis" is located at the intersection of 11th Street and Taylor Avenue, about half a mile north of the Oregon State University campus.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the timeline for the pilot project?
Because a painted intersection is a semi-permanent installation, the pilot will run for one year. The timeline for this pilot project is July 2017 – July 2018. During this time, city staff will meet with neighborhood participants to gather their lessons learned and observe the impacts of seasonal weather and road maintenance to determine if changes are needed.

Can we apply for a painted intersection project?
Not yet. The experience and information gained through the pilot will be used to determine the feasibility of painted intersections as well as define the application and review process for future installations.

How can we remain informed of the pilot’s status?
Those interested in the outcome of the painted intersection project or possibly applying for a future installation are encouraged to email Tracy Oulman to receive updates on the project.
