Road closures planned next week

Several road closures are planned from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 25 through 27 while Knife River Materials performs right of way work in east Medford.

On Monday, June 25, on Crater Lake Avenue between Roberts and Delta Waters roads, crews will prepare the roadway for a repair process called "cape sealing." During the prep work, one lane of traffic will be open for each direction.

Cape seal involves applying a tacky coating on the street, then covering it with rock chips. After the new surface cures for three to four weeks, another surface seal is applied.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, crews will place a new layer of asphalt on Hillcrest Road between East McAndrews Road and Highcrest Drive.

Motorists should expect delays and should seek alternate routes. Weather conditions and equipment failures could cause work to be rescheduled.
