*** 2024 SUMMER ROAD IMPROVEMENT UPDATE ***

Douglas County Public Works to Begin Summer Road Work

 

 

(Douglas County, Ore.) – With summer season officially underway, the Douglas County Public Works Department (DCPW), Operations and Maintenance Division wanted to remind residents that they have begun work on our annual paving, striping and chip sealing programs on roadways throughout Douglas County.  The work is scheduled to continue through mid-September.  As with any road project, unforeseen delays due to weather, equipment and material availability could possibly extend the anticipated project timelines.

 

Road maintenance is typically performed Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm depending upon the weather. We are asking motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists to be on the lookout, slow down, and use caution in areas where we have posted road construction signs, speed reduction warnings, and detours.  Traffic in some work areas might be controlled by flaggers, and motorists could experience delays of up to 20 minutes. 

 

Safety is always a priority for the motoring public, as well as for our employees.  Please understand that road construction projects will impact drive times, so we are asking residents to plan accordingly by anticipating delays and seeking alternate routes whenever possible.  Please proceed with caution, be patient and obey all posted signs, warnings, and flagger instructions as you travel in and around all road construction zones. 

 

For information on Douglas County Road Projects for 2024, please contact DCPW, Operations and Maintenance Division at (541) 957-2026.
