Oregon Route 501 (OR 501) is an Oregon state highway running from Alsea to the Benton-Lane County line. OR 501 is known as the Alsea-Deadwood Highway No. 201 (see Oregon highways and routes). It is 9.49 miles (15.27 km) long and runs north–south, entirely within Benton County.
OR 501 was established in 2002 as part of Oregon's project to assign route numbers to highways that previously were not assigned.
OR 501 begins at an intersection with OR 34 at Alsea and heads south to the Benton-Lane County line, where it ends.
The Alsea-Deadwood Highway originally continued south into Lane County to end at OR 36, but has since been truncated to the county line. Near Lobster Valley, the road becomes Hazel Glen Road, and continues on for 2 miles. At approximately the one mile mark, the road crosses into Lane County. Approximately one mile further, the road becomes a gravel BLM road. OR 501 was assigned to the Alsea-Deadwood Highway in 2002.
