Territorial Highway

Lane County is proud to assume ownership of Territorial Highway. For years, the community has rallied around roadway improvement needs, supporting Lane County's pursuit of design and construction funding. House Bill 2017, Keep Oregon Moving, included a provision to transfer Territorial Highway from Oregon Department of Transportation to Lane County and allocated some one-time funding to support needed improvements and maintenance. The transfer will occur in phases over several years. Lane County has committed a significant portion of the funding to improving the segment of Territorial Highway located between Gillespie Corners and the town of Lorane. Lane County is also working with the City of Veneta to improve walking and biking on Territorial Highway between the City and Elmira.
