Motorists on Interstate Five Tuesday morning will be dealing with rolling slowdowns between Rice Valley and Cottage Grove.
Dan Latham of the Oregon Department of Transportation says the delays are due to road construction work in that area. Drivers should expect delays of about twenty minutes. The delays are tentatively scheduled to take place between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and will affect both north and southbound motorists. Latham says that Tuesday’s delays are due to blasting that is going on.
Latham says there will be a lot of construction activity between Rice Valley and the Drain interchange exit this week. Motorists should watch for message boards and traffic control changes.
