ODOT is directing traffic with flaggers. One lane of travel. Expect delays. There is also reported to be a major fuel leak that they’re beginning to clean up. The Salmon River is very close to the highway at that point.

8:01am
Truck driver is being transported to a hospital in Lincoln City. The scene is beyond Rose Lodge but not quite to the Van Duzer Scenic Corridor.

8:05am
Driver is being transported to North Lincoln Hospital. That’s a very good sign. If they had transported him east to meet with REACH or Life Flight might have indicated worse injuries.
