Work continues Saturday, Nov. 21No work over Thanksgiving Wednesday-Monday
K&E Excavating continue to work on the slope west of the runaway truck ramp to install rock bolts that help stabilize the hillside. This work must be complete before work shuts down for the winter and should wrap up by mid-December.
Due to the rainy, windy and snowy weather, K&E Excavating will work on Saturday, Nov. 21 during daylight hours to make up for lost time. Travelers should expect flagging and lane closures on Saturday, Nov. 21.
The stormy weather did bring minor landslides and down trees within the project area. Minor landslides are expected on newly blasted slopes during the winter months. These slides and down trees did not affect U.S. 26. ODOT and K&E Excavating are working to repair the slides and will monitor the area throughout the winter.
Work will not take place during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend Wednesday, Nov. 23 through Sunday, Nov. 29. Work will resume at first light on Monday, Nov. 30.
