Closure needed install two culverts near Sheep Creek

SWEET HOME—U.S. 20 east of Sweet Home (mileposts 54-57) will be closed to thru traffic for three full days September 8-10 so crews can install two culverts that are part of a landslide repair project. The slide area is just west of Sheep Creek.

The three-day full road closure begins at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, September 8 and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, September 10.

Crews have been working on the slide area since August 23 with single lane closures and flaggers controlling two-way traffic Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. There are no lane closures at night, or on weekends and Labor Day.

The suggested alternative or detour routes during the full closure are OR 22 and OR 126.
