TA section 2 - McKenzie Pass OR 242 status - Spring 2018
« on: April 22, 2018, 02:06:08 am »
Update April 18 2018
From link:   " New update from ODOT, they have closed the road to all users! See photo below. Because of the fire (in 2017) ODOT is still assessing and clearing danger trees, the state of the roadway and culverts. Work crews are on the highway with heavy equipment. Once they have completed their work bicyclist and pedestrians will be allowed at their own risk. The plan is to open the highway to cars and all users the third Monday in June, June 18th. No date at this time when crews will be done, we will keep you posted. Feel free to call the shop for latest updates."

Though McKenzie Pass just reopened on Monday, June 18, it appears to be closed again due to a landslide.

You must ride the Santiam Alternate between McKenzie Bridge and Sisters, Oregon.

It is unknown at this time when the road will reopen.

I just heard from the Oregon DOT. They should have the slide cleaned up and road reopened by tomorrow (6/22/18).
