There’s a lot of talk lately of the “big one” hitting the northwest and what that could mean for us in Central Oregon. We talked to ODOT about their role in a major disaster. Peter Murphy with ODOT says they would play a big role here in Central Oregon if a disaster of that magnitude were to strike. "In a worst case scenario, we'd become headquarters because we have the communications systems here at the traffic operations center to talk to the rest of the State, in case the need arises; in the event that things were very serious then we'd have supplies come into the Redmond Airport for example, and then from this side ODOT would push it's way through to the other side of the valley to do whatever it could. Now that's a worst case scenario. He explains ODOT has the ability to move things; the trucks the graters and the equipment that can clear highways and fix roads so that people can drive on them.
