As part of a pilot project, the Oregon Department of Transportation is adding half-mile markers on two highways. “On 217, the whole route. And also on Highway 26, on the east side, about a 30 mile stretch from Sandy up past Government Camp.” ODOT's Don Hamilton says emergency responders want them, so drivers can give better descriptions of their locations. The project costs $43,000 with the money coming from ODOT's Highway Safety Fund. If it's successful, it might be expanded to other highways in the state.
