Highway 97 work continues
This week, Oregon Department of Transportation Region 4 will be working on U.S. Highway 97 from Madras to Terrebonne.
The contractor, Knife River, will be grinding and inlay paving the northbound lane of Highway 97, north of the Crooked River Bridge. The work began late June 10.
Between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., there will be one-way traffic with flaggers and pilot cars, with traffic delays of up to 20 minutes. The contractor may also be overlaying the shoulders of the Crooked River Bridge during the day. There may be slow traffic and lane closures, but one lane of traffic each direction will be maintained.
Stellar J Construction is performing bridge replacement work on U.S. Highway 97 for the Spanish Hollow Creek and Trout Creek bridges, where there may be one-way traffic with flaggers at any time.
After the flagging is complete, the construction zone will be switched over and controlled with signals.
ODOT invests in Oregon's future through roadway improvement projects, in order to provide a safe, efficient transportation system. All work is dependent on weather conditions and schedules are subject to change.
Where traffic is routed through or around a work zone, pedestrians, including those with disabilities, will also be provided alternate routes through the work zone.
