Overpass construction limits traffic near Owens

Railroad crossing delays on a main route to Owens Community College soon will be history, but for the next six months or so, construction of a new overpass on Oregon Road likely will cause traffic congestion.

Starting Monday, Oregon will be reduced to one lane in each direction near the CSX Transportation crossing north of the Owens campus, where the overpass has been under construction since last year.

The overpass is scheduled to open in October.

Owens officials urged motorists headed to campus to allow extra time or consider using alternate routes, such as the Buck Road/Third Street approach instead of Oregon.
