Update on road conditions for holiday travelers

Posted: Updated:

Severe weather from a few days ago is still forcing drivers to be on their toes today. Heavy rains have taken a toll on many roads.

Highway 1, north of Mount Vernon is still closed after being washed out on Monday. Two cars got stuck when that happened. The DOT says highway repairs will begin next week. 

Also in Linn County, work will begin on Highway 151 next week. Part of the road gave way near a bridge in Fairfax. The DOT says plans could soon be finalized to fill the hole and then pave over it. Detours are in place.
