The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) reports that Interstate 5 motorists should expect weekday traffic delays through southern Douglas County the next two weeks for hazard tree removal.
Starting Monday, February 20, contractors for ODOT will fell trees along the center median and shoulder of I-5 between Glendale and Azalea (milepost 80-88). The work is scheduled from Monday to Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Rolling slowdowns will be used in both directions and most delays will be less than 20 minutes. Southbound traffic will be affected between Canyonville (Exit 98) and Glendale (Exit 80), while northbound traffic will see slowdowns from Wolf Creek (Exit 76) to Azalea (Exit 88).
Flaggers will hold traffic at each on-ramp in these areas for 10-20 minutes.
The work may also require lane and shoulder closures in both directions. Motorists should watch for construction vehicles entering and exiting the travel lanes.
