SISTERS, OR -- Yesterday ODOT locked the gates at both ends of Highway 242 that runs from Sisters to Springfield due to the Holiday Farm Fire. Peter Murphy at ODOT says they closed Highway 242 to prevent people from using it to get around blockades at Santiam Junction. Murphy says they told people on Highway 242 to drive east to Sisters. He says they also put leaflets on parked cars urging the drivers to leave the area as soon as possible and head east. Murphy says if you have to travel, go to the tripcheck-dot-com website for the safest, most open route to your destination.
