OR 34 (Alsea Hwy) is experiencing a lane restriction and rough road conditions after last week’s powerful storm.
The highway is reduced to two lanes at milepost 49, between Philomath and Alsea, where a portion of the roadway has been claimed by the Alsea River. The restriction may last for several weeks.
There is a climbing lane at that location, so traffic can still be accommodated in both directions at this time. That condition may change unexpectedly if additional roadway is compromised.
ODOT is also advising motorists who travel OR 34 to expect rough pavement at two separate locations where landslides occurred recently.
During last week’s storm, landslides blocked OR 34 at locations east and west of Alsea (mileposts 22 & 44).
While debris from the landslides has been removed and the highway remains open, ODOT wants to monitor the slide locations for continued movement before repairing damaged pavement.
Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds and travel with caution through the areas.
