Partial Restriction of Cascade Lakes Highway

Traffic on a portion of the Cascades Lake Highway near Elk Lake will be restricted to one lane with a pilot car starting on Friday, Sept. 15, 2017, to assure firefighter and public safety.
Lane restrictions are anticipated to be in effect through at least Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017. Longer restrictions may be necessary.
Firefighters assigned to the Horse Creek Complex fires, which include the Nash and Separation Fires on the Willamette National Forest, are working along the roadway to clear a 300-foot firebreak.  Trees are being felled and decked in the area. Heavy equipment and trucks are parked along and in the highway.
In addition, visibility may be limited due to smoke in the area. The public should expect sporadic travel delays, limited visibility due to smoke and increased traffic from firefighting efforts along this portion of the Cascade Lakes Highway. 
For more information on this, the Nash Fire or any other fires in the Horse Creek Complex please call (541) 719-8371.
