SPRINGFIELD, Ore. – Weeks after the Holiday Farm Fire devastated the McKenzie River area, Highway 126 is set to reopen soon.

Angela Beers-Seydel with the Oregon Department of Transportation said the highway will reopen at noon on Friday.

There are still many hazards, so ODOT asks that drivers avoid Highway 126 unless they are residents, first responders or recovery personnel.

Trees and rocks could still fall on the road, and there is debris up to the fog line. There is no guard rail in spots, Beers-Seydel said.

When the change takes effect, there will be no more pilot cars leading caravans.

Drivers should expect lengthy delays during the week as work continues.
