Delays on Baker – Copperfield Highway On September 22 and 26

BAKER CITY –  Expect 20 minutes delays along OR 86 (Baker-Copperfield Hwy.) during the evenings of Sept. 22 and Sept. 26 to accommodate a 16-foot-wide, 180-foot-long, 416,300-pound load.

The oversized freight (non-hazardous generator equipment) will move slowly (10-40 mph) down the center of the highway at times, blocking both lanes. Pilot cars and flaggers will direct traffic around the transport as it moves from Baker City to the Brownlee Dam, on the Idaho side of the Snake River.

Delays on Sept. 26 are to accommodate the return trip of the empty transport trailer from the dam to I-84. Dates are tentative and may change.
