The roads that are fine for today's traffic could become clogged if no plans are made for future traffic. 

Fortunately, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is looking down the road (so to speak) a bit. 

Two of the main highways in the Rogue Valley, Oregon 140 and Oregon 99, are both due for new "corridor plans." 

ODOT's Gary Leaming joins us to talk about which portions of the roads are under consideration, and for what improvements.

PUBLIC MEETING: ODOT will host an open house at the District 5 Fire HQ on Highway 99 north of Talent, 4 PM to 7 PM on Thursday, July 24.  Drop in any time during those hours.
