Roberta Road

Small City Allotment Grant – $250,000

Project Summary

Project: Grade and resurface Roberta Road, beginning at Hwy 140 moving north, and ending at Missouri Avenue.


The Town of Lakeview has been awarded a $250,000 Small City Allotment grant. The Small City Allotment program is an annual allocation of state funds for local transportation projects. Sponsored by the League of Oregon Cities and Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT).


This section of Roberta Road serves as a central access road to Collins Sawmill and Warner Creek Correctional Facilities. Both facilities are significant employers for Lakeview, with over 400 cars traveling Roberta Road weekly at any given time. This portion of Roberta Road has more than 40 residences, which increases the amount of traffic and transit. Roberta’s road includes utility cuts, unsafe potholes that harm tires and suspensions, badly painted lines, and inconsistencies from poor grading where water has accumulated and created uneven surfaces. When visibility is poor during the winter, the road is particularly hazardous since drivers might easily underestimate concealed, compromised road defects. There is an urgent need for repair.
