Highway 140 Road Conditions - 7/17
Brought to you by:
Road maintenance causing no to short delays are on going on Highway 140 in the Cascades. Be expecting to encounter machinery and workers at any time.
The Bootleg Fire is having an impact on Highway 140 in the following ways. Thick smoke has been present from Bly Mountain to Quartz Mountain at times. Fire fighting resources are using Highway 140 heavily. Be alert for them at all times. And, while the fire is very visible from Highway 140......it has not closed Highway 140. That status could change. Always be checking the latest status of the Highway before travel. Highway 31 is now in much more direct threat from the Bootleg Fire than Highway 140 is. Highway 31 should NOT be used as an alternate to Highway 140.
MP 142.62 - 144.06 in Lakeview. Road construction is occurring causing no to minimum delays. Use caution. Demo, excavation, and sidewalk work is scheduled, flagging operation at times with minimal delays to traffic.
