The breathtaking Highway 242 may open soon to cyclists. ODOT's Peter Murphy says crews have been plowing through the snow yesterday and today to make a one-lane path on the scenic McKenzie Highway before the snow melts for the season; cyclists can enjoy the rugged ride through the mountains. There’s probably people listening right now who are saying 'all right!” The snow will eventually melt away so that cars can drive through. Last year the snowpack was so tall and heavy that the popular route didn't open until mid-July. At one point there was 30 feet if snow covering the highway.
