March 30th, 2016

ODOT will be doing a road closure on US20 that will affect travel from the PCT to Albany/Corvallis, and vice versa. Travel to Bend and the trail, Salem to the trail and Eugene and the trail will not be affected.

US20 will be closed west of the trail for all of August and September of 2016. It may reduce vehicle traffic past the PCT and potentially affect hitchhiking from the trail into Bend.
