FLORENCE, Ore. -- The Lane County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting saturation patrols in the Florence and Highway 126 West areas Friday, May 18, through Sunday, May 20, during the Rhododendron Festival.

Deputies will be focusing on speed limit enforcement, seat belt compliance and DUII detection and apprehension, according to a press release from the sheriff’s office.

The festival is expected to cause heavy traffic and congestion on Highway 101 and Highway 126 West. Motorists should expect delays.

These patrols are funded through grants administered through the Oregon Department of Transportation and the Oregon State Sheriff’ Association, allowing deputies to conduct saturation patrols on overtime to increase community safety.

An additional grant funded saturation patrol is planned for May 14 through May 27, overlapping the patrols for the Rhododendron Festival. The National “Click It or Ticket” campaign will set a focus on seat belt compliance.
