ODOT plans work on Highway 26


The Oregon Department of Transportation is planning a project on U.S. Highway 26 east of Rhododendron between approximately mileposts 49 and 57 (the junction with Oregon Highway 35).

The project, ODOT representatives say, will “improve safety and preserve the highway.”

An open house to help local residents understand the project will be held from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, March 14, at the Resort at the Mountain, 68010 Fairway Ave., Welches.

More information on this project, including a map with lists of plans for the project, can be found at the website US26MtHoodSafety.org. After March 14, residents may leave comments on this project website.
