EUGENE, Ore. — A portion of a massive dam is about to make its way through the state of Oregon, causing delays for some drivers.
When loaded onto a 142-foot long truck and trailer, the 23-foot-wide gate needs two travel lanes, and can only be driven on I-5 at night when there is less traffic on the road.
So starting Wednesday night, late-night drivers should expect long delays between Cottage Grove and Sutherlin.
Northbound traffic may be delayed for up to 45 minutes between 10:45 p.m. and midnight. Southbound drivers about 30 minutes.
