The Oregon Department of Transportation reports that Interstate 5 motorists should expect delays Wednesday and Thursday nights, December 18 and 19, in the Roseburg area due to rock scaling work.
Rolling slowdowns will be used in both directions of I-5, with traffic delayed up to 20 minutes between 7:00 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. each night.
In the southbound direction, pilot cars will lead I-5 traffic on a low-speed approach from the Winchester area through Roseburg. Flaggers will hold traffic at each southbound on-ramp from the Del Rio/Winchester interchange (Exit 129) to McLain Avenue (Exit 121).
Northbound rolling slowdowns will begin north of Myrtle Creek, with flaggers holding on-ramp traffic from Boomer Hill Road (Exit 110) to McLain Avenue.
Most of the rock scaling work will take place on the west side of I-5 near the McLain Avenue interchange.
