TRAFFIC ALERT: Hwy 26 Closes At 3 P.M. For Several Hours

MT. HOOD, OR -- Oregon's Department of Transportation will close Highway 26 Wednesday afternoon, between Mt. Hood and Warm Springs. The closure is expected to start at 3 p.m. and stretch a couple of hours, to allow crews to recover a semi truck that crashed Tuesday.

The blockade will occure between Frog Lake, at milepost 62, and the Highway 216 junction, at milepost 71. Eastbound drivers will be detoured on to Highway 35 then I-84. Westbound will detour down Highway 216 to Highway 197.

Officials say removing the semi requires a complex process that will block the entire highway. Crews will reopen the road as soon as work is complete. 


EVENING UPDATE -- ODOT reports the highway reopened before 7:45 p.m.
