Leaburg DamLEABURG: Problem's continued today at the Eugene Water & Electric Board's Leaburg Dam.
Due to the breakdown of a crane on the structure, the road across the Leaburg Dam is closed. EWEB personnel were driving pilot vehicles to escort passenger cars and trucks through the private logging roads accessed by Goodpasture Road starting at approximately 4:30 p.m. today.
According to McKenzie Fire & Rescue, flaggers on the Highway 126 side of the dam will direct vehicles to a location on Goodpasture Road. The pilot vehicles will then escort passenger vehicles on the private roads to the Leaburg Dam.
