SISTERS, OR -- From ODOT Region 4
As ODOT plows the Old McKenzie Highway there is a serious hazard to bicyclists who choose to ignore the warning signs at the gate outside of Sisters. The signs are posted for the safety of everyone and ignoring them presents risks to themselves and the operators of the heavy equipment transiting the highway. We are encountering 9 feet of snow below Windy Point and there’s a reported 105 inches at Obsidian Trailhead. This will take some time for ODOT to remove and bicyclists (and others) are prohibited while our plowing work is underway.
