ODOT to begin Hwy. 26 Warm Springs paving project


Beginning Monday, construction crews from Laduke Construction of Medford, under contract to the Oregon Department of Transportation, will begin a highway improvement project on US Highway 26 on the Warm Springs Reservation, from milepost 99 to milepost 103.

ODOT officials said the $3.25 million project will repave the section of highway. The existing pavement will be ground out and new asphalt put down on the roadway and shoulders. Signs will be upgraded as necessary.

The agency said the improvements will extend the life of the roadway and make the wearing surface safer for the traveling public.

​​​​During construction, motorists can expect:

Lane shifts utilizing temporary concrete barrier. Occasional lane closures controlled by flaggers. Delays up to 20 minutes. Limited Duration Road Closures between MP 99 and 101.75 between the hours of 1pm – 3pm on various Tuesdays thru Thursdays. These closures will be a maximum of 20 minutes and a maximum of 6 closures will be permitted during January and February.

The project is expected to wrap up in the summer.

Where traffic is routed through or around the work zone, pedestrians, including those with disabilities, will also be provided routes through or around the work zone.
