Tree Removal On Highway 20 Next Week

The Oregon Department of Transportation reminds motorists to expect delays on U.S. 20 Corvallis-Newport Highway around milepost 3, Tuesday, Feb. 14 and Wednesday, Feb. 15 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. ODOT crews will be removing unstable hazardous trees from the slide area. About 20 trees will be removed from the top of the slide to prevent them from falling on the road and on power transmission lines.

Flaggers will stop traffic when trees are being taken down. Delays are usually 20 minutes or less, but could be longer if material falls on the road. Landslides can be initiated in slopes already on the verge of movement by rainfall, snowmelt, changes in water level, stream erosion, changes in ground water, disturbance by human activities, or any combination of these factors.
