Caveman Bridge blocked by overturned vehicle - 06/03/21

GRANTS PASS - Oregon 99-6th Street, Grants Pass (MP -.17): Caveman Bridge is blocked by a single vehicle rollover crash. Emergency crews on scene. Expect delays/congestion until removed. Seek alternate routes.

Interstate 5 northbound closed south of Ashland due to commercial truck fire - 06/02/21

ASHLAND - Interstate 5 northbound traffic remains closed tonight near the California border after a commercial truck caught fire near milepost 11, just south of Ashland.  ODOT, OSP and Ashland/Jackson Co. Fire District 5 fire crews responded to the truck fire shortly before 6 p.m. The truck trailer contained paper products and appears to be a total loss.

Crews are attempting to clear the burning debris and get a single lane of northbound traffic open by 7:30 p.m. It will take some time for the traffic back-up to clear as it extends from milepost 1 and into California. ##
