People planning on traveling up Hwy. 126 to access Sisters and parts of Eastern Oregon need to replan their route. The road is closed to allow for removal of rock from a landslide as well as filling in a massive hole that had blocked traffic east of Deer Creek over the weekend.
Although times and days may vary depending on the weather, repair work is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily from April 3rd through 13th, or until rock removal is completed according to the Oregon Dept. of Transportation. Work may continue during the weekend of April 8th to 9th, ODOT also advises.
During work hours, expect to stop for flaggers during lane closures or to take a detour for full closures of this section of OR 18.
