SISTERS, OR -- As snow melts across Oregon’s highways, the Oregon Department of Transportation is moving snow blowing equipment to Old McKenzie Highway so crews can get into the area and repair damage done by the 2017 Milli Fire. 
Plows began working Monday, clearing the highway from the gate near Sisters to about Windy Point. Once the lower portion is clear, they’ll move to the upper area, to the Dee Wright Observatory. 


The Federal Highway Administration provided about $800,000 to repair guardrails and culverts, and repave segments. Some work was done last summer, but winter weather forced crews to suspend their efforts. "No entry" signs will be posted when crews are in the area, Mondays through Thursdays, Bicyclists and pedestrians are advised to use Highway 242 at their own risk until it's formally opened by ODOT later in the season.
