Thanks OSP for providing this information.Road closure information in evacuated areas

During this time of unprecedented wildfires resulting in mass mandatory evacuations, Law Enforcement is working with fire incident commands and the offices (county and state) of emergency management to determine when these evacuations are necessary and when people can safely RETURN to those affected areas.

ORS 810.030 allows authorities to impose restrictions on highways as necessary to protect the interest and safety of the general public.

ORS 401.309 – “A city or county may authorize an agency or official to order mandatory evacuations. During this time of unprecedented wildfires resulting in mass mandatory evacuations the Sheriff of the affected County is the evacuation authority.

The Sheriff of the County will communicate when it has been deemed safe to return through their emergency websites and social media platforms. Until the official notification has been posted, please stay out of the affected areas. It is for your own safety and the safety of all First Responders.

Public Safety personnel are working as quickly and efficiently as we can to make these areas safe for residents to return.
