Oregon Route 501 (OR 501) is an Oregon state highway running from Lobster Valley Road, near the Benton-Lane County line, north to Alsea. 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 Lobster Valley Road, just north of the Benton-Lane County line. From there, it heads through rural land, much of it forested, before meeting OR 34 at an intersection in Alsea, where OR 501 ends.
South of Lobster Valley Road, the Alsea-Deadwood Highway 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.
The Alsea-Deadwood Highway originally continued south into Lane County to end at OR 36, but has since been truncated to Lobster Valley Road, a short distance north of the county line. ODOT designated the Alsea-Deadwood Highway as OR 501 in 2002.
The entire route is in Benton County.
