Hwy. 26 sign project to impact weekday traffic posted on 06/30/2017

Legacy Contracting, the contractor for the Oregon Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) RealTime sign project on Hwy. 26, is expected to continue work through July, including drilling, installing electric conduit and pouring cement pads for the sign supports.

The electronic signs will offer up to the minute traffic information and advisories, including road conditions and travel times between destinations.

Lane and shoulder closures are expected to take place for the work, and while the contractor is allowed to work Monday through Saturday each week, Legacy has kept to a Monday through Thursday schedule.

Kimberly Dinwiddie, ODOT Community Affairs, noted the custom-made signs could be installed sometime in August, but the signs will not be fully functional until a later date as ODOT will need to test the software.

“Compared to the project that we had over the past three summers, this one is much more minimal as far as impacting travelers,” Dinwiddie said. “I think everybody up there deserves a break from all the construction. We really appreciate the patience and understanding of all the community members up there.”
