Highway 22 work scheduled

A contractor working for the Oregon Department of Transportation will begin a slide repair project Monday, May 11 on Highway 22 east of Buell - milepost 7.5. The project will stabilize the slide area and should be completed by Saturday, June 6.

After the stabilization is completed, another contractor will repave the slide area. This work will take about two days and will be weather dependent, but will be completed by Tuesday, June 30.

Motorists should expect delays with two-way traffic controlled by flaggers. ODOT has placed variable message signs in various locations warning motorists of the rough road ahead, as well as information about the project and possible delays.

Motorists should drive with caution through the construction zone.
