Medford, OR – According to the state officials, full closure is scheduled from Monday, Sept. 11, through Sept. 18, from the Andies Prairie Sno-Park, approximately 26 miles east of Weston, to milepost 30.2, approximately 10 miles west of Elgin.
ODOT officials also said that crews will replace a failed culvert at milepost 28.7.
A new culvert will reportedly allow water to pass under the highway.
Travelers will need to detour around closure via OR 82, I-84 and OR 11. Local routes near the closure are not suitable for highway traffic.
For one week following the closure, the road will be under 24-hour flagging with single lane restrictions of 14 feet.
All work is expected to be complete by the end of the day Sept. 26.
