Highway 62 road conditions - 8/22
Brought to you by:
TRAVEL ALERT BETWEEN THE ROGUE VALLEY MALL AND DELTA WATERS ROAD IN MEDFORD.
Expect very slow going and backups due to construction closing one lane of travel northbound from the North Medford interchange to Delta Waters Road. You will want to use caution in that area. It is recommended to avoid that area if at all possible. Local traffic use Crater Lake Avenue as an alternate north south route. Biddle is not recommended if you are wanting to access Highway 62 northbound. You will be right in the middle of the worst of the mess trying to get on 62.
A wildfire is occuring near Prospect and Crater Lake National Park at this time. The fire does not pose a threat to the highway at this time. But be watching out for fire fighting vehicles of various size in the area from Lost Creek Reservoir to the east Crater Lake National Park Boundary.
Construction is occurring in Medford between Progress Drive and Delta Waters Road. Most of the work is being done at night. There will be flaggers out at night and expect short term delays. During the day, expect slow downs in the area.
Work is being done in the westbound lane 14 miles east of Shady Cove .with a utlity project. Signage and a pilot car are controlling traffic. Expect delays of under 20 minutes.
Many smaller road repair projects are under way from Prospect to Fort Klamath. This is not going to create any delays. But do be watchful for workers and equipment.
