Highway 20 OPEN ALL FRIDAY NIGHTS July 16 thru October 31st – The rest is complicated. See graph below!
The information in the ODOT graphs is a little complicated but if you study it long enough, it’ll all fall into place. You need to study both top and bottom graphs. They’re related, but not the same. You’ll figure it out.
There are stretches of days and times that closures will be somewhat elastic. Just figure out what days and what times you need to travel on Highway 20, roll the dice on the delay, or take Highway 18 or 34. No matter what, it’ll be a little like roulette. If you’ve got appointments at specific times in the valley or on the coast, Highway 20 may not be the route to take. About the only thing you can count on is those Friday nights when the road will be open all night July 16 through October 31st. Again you can always head east out of Waldport on Highway 34 or east out of Lincoln City on Highway 18.
The rest is on the graphs.
