ODOT says Highway 20 will not close this Saturday night for more road construction. ODOT says the weather will be bad enough that they can’t work effectively in it. So this Saturday night you can drive all the way to the Valley if you want.
There will be several more weeks of evening closings on Highway 20 – from Saturday night through Thursday night until the Highway is re-opened to normal traffic. That should come by mid-October, according to ODOT.
The new bypass portion should shave up to twenty minutes off the drive time from Newport to Corvallis
