Memorial Day means many will hit the road to visit family or take a mini-vacation. If you are planning to travel eastward towards the Burns area, we need to tell you about a road detour. Highway 20 near Burns is closed down because of flooding from the Silvies River. "This is actually the second time we've had to close that route this spring in April. There was quite a bit of flooding, and to alleviate the flooding, and get them from one side of the highway to the other, we actually breached the highway where they cut a trench through the middle of the highway to allow the water to cross over from one side to the other." ODOT spokesman Tom Strandberg says you will encounter a detour from Fry Lane to Highway 78.
