Highway 20 to close Sept. 8-10 as slide area cleanup continues


A landslide repair project on U.S. 20 is closing the road for three days east of Sweet Home near Sheep Creek, between milepost 54 and 57.

Crews are trenching to install two culverts under the road.

Wednesday, Sept. 8 through Friday, Sept. 10: The road closes entirely for three days beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday morning and reopening at 11:59 p.m. on Friday night.

There are no local detours.

Detour routes along OR 126 and OR 22 are in place and there are signs throughout the corridor to help guide traffic. There will be no through traffic during this three-day closure.

Sept. 11 through December: When the road reopens, expect one 15 foot wide travel lane with 24-hour flagging.

This will continue until the project pauses for winter at the end of December. The project is scheduled to be completed in August 2022.
