Travelers in southwest Oregon should expect snowy roads and winter conditions today as winter weather continues to affect the region. Plan ahead, take extra time, and expect delays throughout the day.
Roads in high elevation areas may be covered in packed snow and ice. OR62, OR138 and OR230 are especially treacherous. Travel on these roads or other high cascades areas is not advised; use alternate routes. Sno-Parks in the Crater Lake and Diamond Lake area are still inaccessible.
Chains are still required through several high elevation areas. Chain requirements can change throughout the day, depending on conditions. Check Tripcheck.com for the latest information, and make sure you chain up in designated areas on road shoulders only.
