UNION/UMATILLA COUNTIES – (Information from ODOT Resident Engineer) There is now single lane, opposing traffic separated by surface mounted orange tubular markers on what is normally the WB side of the freeway.  There are 2 lanes WB for the steep grade between approximate MP 248 and MP 246 to allow a passing opportunity.  Everywhere else is reduced to a single lane in each direction.  There will be a couple of emergency turnouts available each direction to allow for disabled vehicles to pull off.

Work on the closed EB side of the freeway will include removal of existing asphalt in the slow lane where new concrete pavement will be constructed and the fast lane where new asphalt will be placed.  Trucks will be entering and leaving the work zone into live traffic at both ends of the project all week, so please use caution when driving through.

The posted speed limit both directions is 50 MPH through the work zone so please slow down and plan extra time.  OSP will continue to have an increased presence at times to help keep the work zone safe for everyone.
