CORVALLIS, Ore. -- ODOT crews said the eastern closure point for Highway 34 is now at Peoria Rd. They said fast moving water covers parts of the road between Peoria Rd. and the Willamette River, east of Corvallis.
Crews said one lane, in each direction, will open when it’s safe for travel.
The water levels are lower than they have been, but they’re still very high and the flooding across Benton and Linn County is extensive.
A section of Highway 34 is still underwater today. @BentonCoGov Commissioners declared a local emergency because of all the flooding. We’ll have more details on @KEZI9 at 4,5&6 PM pic.twitter.com/mHU3c8w6OG
