Snow and Icy Roads May Make for Precarious Holiday Travels
Oregon may see much snow in the next week

If you take to the roads this holiday season be aware that your travels may become treacherous, with freezing temperatures and snow expected in many corners of Oregon.

The Willamette Valley, the mountains, the Columbia River Gorge and Central, Southern and Eastern Oregon all likely will see varying degrees of snow and freezing temperatures over the three-day holiday weekend and into the following week.

Be prepared. Travelers may encounter hazardous winter conditions.

ODOT says their staffing shortages mean they may need a little more time to clear roads, whether it be snow or slides.

This is a continuation of a staffing trend seen since last year. ODOT says they are working hard to fill vacant positions and will shift resources as needed when they see significant snow or other issues on our roads.

ODOT crews are on duty around the clock to keep the roads safe and clear problems as quickly as possible.

Here are a few holiday travel tips.

In recent days, snow has forced the closure of U.S. 97 into California and of Interstate 5 over the Siskiyou Pass into the Mount Shasta area. Be extra careful whether traveling through the Columbia River Gorge, the Coast Range or the Cascades.

Snow is expected so be prepared, be flexible and be careful.
