Slide repairs begin Tuesday on OR 126W near Walton

Expect short delays 

WALTON — Travelers east of Walton should expect flaggers and daytime single lane traffic through the OR 126W Florence-Eugene Highway Shoulder Widening Project construction area starting Tuesday, Jan. 11.

Crews are repairing a portion of the north hillside that slid in recent rains. A rock pad will be constructed for access, and rock placed to stabilize the slope. The drainage ditch below the slope will also be cleared and repaired.

Construction should be complete early next week.

The recent project between milepost 36.0 and 36.7 widened the highway and installed concrete barrier and guardrail to make the section safer for travel. This is part of our mission of creating and maintaining a safe, multimodal transportation system for the people of Oregon.

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