I just saw this article from Pamplin Media Group.  I wonder how this will impact 224 this coming winter.


ODOT says shortage of funds, road conditions could be worse this winter

Always check road conditions before heading out. 

Buckle up because ODOT officials are anticipating a worse winter for drivers than we’ve seen in recent years.

“This year, with costs increasing, and fuels tax revenues trending down, we are forced to scale back maintenance and services around the state,” officials said in a statement. “We won’t be able to clear roads during winter storms as quickly as in the past. There may be more snow and ice buildup, more chain requirements and longer delays and more frequent road closures.”
