Highway projects planned in Grant Co. area this summer

JOHN DAY, Ore. – Highway construction season is just around the corner. The Oregon Department of Transportation will be working this year on several projects in the Grant County area along U.S. 395 and U.S. 26. Below are listed a few of the projects currently scheduled that will result in lane closures and traffic delays. The good news, these projects will help extend the useful life of our transportation infrastructure and improve safety. Construction updates will be shared with media in the future as the work gets underway. Motorists are reminded to slow down, watch for crews and equipment, minimize distractions and expect delays when you see orange cones and flaggers. Whether driving, bicycling or walking, keep safety in mind at all times.
