REDMOND, OR -- The city of Redmond will close SW Sixth Street, from Black Butte Boulevard to Forest Avenue on Tuesday, from 4 a.m. to 11 a.m., to allow heavy equipment to remove snow that’s piled up on the street and in parking areas.
Officials ask drivers to not park in the closure area, so plows can reach the edge of the street. Sidewalks will be open and market detour routes will be in place.
The city's operation overlaps the Oregon Department of Transportation's work on Highland and Glacier, which are the east/west couplet for Highway 126 through Redmond. Contract crews will work Tuesday and Wednesday nights, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., to clear both lanes of each road after last week's immense snowfall. They also ask drivers not to park on Highway 126, overnight so plows can make a clean pass.
