Info from ODOT
A contractor for ODOT will begin a stream slope repair next week along OR 18 (Salmon River Highway), causing a lane restriction for motorists approximately 2.5 miles west of Grand Ronde, in Polk County.
The stream slope was scoured during a recent weather event and will be rebuilt with a rock buttress and a rock blanket to withstand further erosion. The roadway was not damaged during the weather event but would be vulnerable if the repair is not made.
Beginning Monday, January 7 and continuing until Friday, January 11, the highway will be restricted to a single lane of travel at milepost 18.6 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Flaggers will control traffic in alternating directions. Motorists should anticipate a 10-20 minute delay.
North Santiam Paving of Stayton, Oregon was awarded the $30,000 low-bid contract.
