ODOT: Plan ahead – OR 47 through Banks closes May 16 to October

We’re starting work soon to replace the West Fork Dairy Creek Bridge! Starting May 16, expect OR 47 to be closed to the north and south of the bridge as our crews work on replacing the 80 year old bridge.

While OR 47 is closed, you can use OR 6 and U.S. 26 as a detour.
