Umatilla County – ODOT crews will be closing off the access to Livestock Road from Westland Road that is closest to the Interstate 84 Exit 180 interchange. Work includes some road shoulder upgrades and signage to redirect traffic to an alternate access located further north on Westland Road. The traffic pattern change will improve safety, as turning movements near interchanges are often a contributing factor in crashes.
The project starts next week and could continue through part of November. Please watch for crews and drive with extra caution in this area.
Along with blocking the current access point, Umatilla County crews will close a short section of Livestock Road. They will also improve the new section that leads to Westland Road and upgrade signs to help travelers navigate the changes.
See attached project map.
Where traffic is routed through or around a work zone, pedestrians, including those with disabilities, will also be provided routes through or around the work zone.
