OR 6 paving project to start on April 29
BANKS— A project that will pave OR 6 (Wilson River Highway) between milepost 39 and 51.5 and the ramp connections between OR 6 and U.S. 26 and OR 47 and OR 6 will begin at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 29, weather permitting.
A contractor working for the Oregon Department of Transportation will begin with the paving of the OR 6/U.S. 26 ramps at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 29. This will require the closure of the ramp for two consecutive nights.
The detour during the closure is OR 47 to and from U.S. 26.
Most of the paving of OR 6 will take place between 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Variable message signs will be posted in key locations for motorists warning them of the planned work. Motorists can expect some delays with at least one lane open with flaggers controlling two-way traffic.
This project is weather dependent so the schedule could change.
