UPDATE WITH PHOTO: OR82 now has one lane open with flaggers directing traffic near MP 41 in the Minam Canyon area. The route was completely closed earlier due to a rock slide that covered the road. Crews are working to remove debris and travelers should expect delays. Continue to check Tripcheck.com or call 511 / 800-977-6368 for update conditions. Outside of Oregon call 503-588-2941.
Starting tomorrow and continuing over the next few days ODOT crews will be working in the downtown areas of Union, North Powder and Cove to help remove some of the snow along the state highway (main street) through town. The operation will help clear some of the snow pack from the highway, uncover drains and create room for future snow storage. It will NOT result in curb-to-curb removal of all excess snow and will be limited by vehicles parked along the street. Local residents and business owners are asked to limit parking along the state highway in downtown areas during this operation. Please watch for ODOT crews working in your community and move vehicles to provide access to as much roadway as possible. Your support is greatly appreciated.
