Delays expected on US 20 and OR 126, ODOT crews to remove trees


Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) crews will remove around 100 hazard trees along U.S. 20 and OR 126 near Sisters starting.

Crews will begin work Monday, May 2, and plan to finish Friday, May 6.

Flaggers and pilot cars will guide traffic through the tree removal work zones. 

Work begins east of Sisters near the U.S. 20 and OR 126 junction, and ends around Suttle Lake (milepost 94 on OR 126 to milepost 87 on U.S. 20.).

Expect delays up to 20 minutes during the daytime from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

Dead trees close to roads can be hazardous and need to be removed so they don’t fall onto the highway.

ODOT removes them when they present an immediate or near-future risk to the road or utilities.

Hazard trees are identified and evaluated by ODOT foresters prior to removal.
