Oregon Route 222 (OR 222) is an Oregon state highway, consisting of two disconnected sections.

The north section runs from OR 126 Business in Springfield to OR 58 near Pleasant Hill. Incorporating a temporary location for part of its route, the north section is 8.00 miles (12.87 km) long and runs northwest to southeast.

The south section runs from a point on Cloverdale Road north of Rodgers Road near Cloverdale, along Cloverdale Road, to OR 99 in Creswell. It is 3.16 miles (5.09 km) long and runs generally east–west.

OR 222 is known as the Springfield-Creswell Highway No. 222 (see Oregon highways and routes).

Both sections run entirely within Lane County. If connected, they would probably be considered to run north–south, as they would form the eastern half of a loop.

OR 222 was established in 2002 as part of Oregon's project to assign route numbers to highways that previously were not assigned, and, as of August 2008, was unsigned, although OR 222 route shields did appear on construction warning signs in 2008.
