Road work coming through Burns

Posted on April 3rd in News
No parking on Broadway Ave. April 9-10
Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) crews will be performing highway grinding and paving activities along Broadway Avenue (U.S. Highway 20) through downtown Burns for two days in April and about one day in early May. 
The work will be done along Broadway Avenue between North Alder Avenue (near Triangle Park) to Monroe Street at the south end of town. Travelers can expect lane closures, flaggers and delays of up to 20 minutes. In addition, curbside parking along Broadway will not be allowed through the work zone during the scheduled days of grinding and paving.  
On Tuesday and Wednesday, April 9-10, the existing pavement will be ground down to remove the top layer of the old asphalt surface that is deteriorating. Work will begin early in the morning and be completed by evening. Curbside parking along Broadway Avenue will not be allowed between 5 a.m. April 9 and 8 p.m. April 10. 
Crews will return Sunday, May 5, to lay new asphalt. Work will begin early in the morning and is scheduled to be completed by evening. If necessary, crews may return Monday morning to finish paving activities. Curbside parking along Broadway Avenue will not be allowed between 5 a.m. May 5 until paving work is complete. 
The scheduled work dates are weather dependent and may change. To help remind businesses and travelers, flyers will be distributed to local shops in the area. 
“We understand this paving project will be an inconvenience for businesses and travelers and appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation,” said ODOT Public Information Officer Tom Strandberg. “The project will help extend the useful life of the highway and create a nice clean look for downtown Burns’ main street.”
