Weekday paving on U.S. 20 near Santiam Pass continues

The construction project on U.S. Highway 20 at Santiam Pass will continue paving and striping during the day, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday, Oct. 14 through Thursday, Oct. 17. This includes the Mount Washington Viewpoint parking area.

Access to the viewpoint will be closed for one or two days. Night temperatures are now too cold for paving and striping to be done successfully in the area.

The only work remaining on the project will be six new guardrail end section installations. That is scheduled for late October.

The project covers almost 14 miles from Santiam Junction (U.S. 20/OR 22) in Linn County (milepost 74.5) to Jack Lake Road in Jefferson County (milepost 88.2). Travelers can expect up to 20 minute delays with two-way traffic controlled by flaggers and a pilot car.

All work is weather dependent because paving requires dry and warm conditions. Travelers should stay alert, watch for signs and drive cautiously through construction zones.

Access for pedestrians, including those with disabilities, will be available and identified through or around the work zones.
