Delta Highway is a short limited-access freeway in Eugene, Oregon, United States, linking downtown Eugene with Beltline Highway, northern Eugene, and the Riverridge golf course to the north.

Route description[edit]

Delta Highway begins at an interchange with Interstate 105 near downtown Eugene. Heading north from the interchange, it passes a shopping mall and a few car dealerships before crossing through a wetland area called the Delta Ponds. The freeway ends at Beltline Highway, but continues as a two-lane surface street named the N. Delta Highway northward to Ayres Road and the Riverridge golf course.

Aside from the two interchanges with the city's major highways, Delta Highway has only two exits. The first exit provides the primary access for the Valley River Center shopping mall. The second exit leads to other commercial and residential areas in the Goodpasture Island neighborhood.

The interchange at Beltline Highway is planned to be upgraded along with several enhancements to the rest of Beltline Highway.

History[edit]

Delta Highway opened on October 27, 1964.[1]

Exit list[edit]

The entire route is in Eugene, Lane County. All exits are unnumbered.
