Wild Willamette winds affect travelers

Posted on: October 26th, 2014 by Madeline MacGregor in News & Press | No Comments

Saturday’s power outages in the lower Willamette Valley affected three of our rest areas: Santiam (north of Albany), Cabin Creek (north of Roseburg) and Gettings Creek (south of Springfield).

The outages occurred in the early evening hours and affected I-5 motorists for approximately eight hours.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced. Everything is operating smoothly today, Sunday, but watch for clean-up operations as staff sweeps through downed branches and leaves.

Drive safe and have a great rest of your fall weekend!
