Highway 227 conditions - 12/4
Brought to you by:
Heavy rain has been causing water to pond on the road surface. Expect that there could be debris in the roadway as well.
WINTER DRIVING CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP AT ANY TIME BETWEEN TILLER AND TRAIL WITH NO PRIOR WARNING. THIS WILL ESPECIALLY BE TRUE OF ICY CONDITIONS. ALWAYS DRIVE WITH CAUTION FROM 3 AM TO 9 AM
HIGHWAY 227 IS NOT A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO I 5. IT HAS HAZARDS THAT CAN LEAD TO VEHICLES GETTING STUCK AND NEEDING COSTLY TOW/ RECOVERY TO GET OUT OF.
This highway is a paved logging road essentially. I am aware of trucking companies that will not let their drivers take this route for any reason. There are number of SHARP hairpins in Jackson County that standard 53 foot commercial trailers will have great difficulty negotiating. Even longer length travel trailers producing a combined vehicle length over 35 feet have difficulty negotiating the haripins. In Douglas County there are sections where this is an extremely narrow roadway. You are warned. Don't be surprised by what this road does. Take it at your own risk.....especially in winter.

Because of delays by the railroad contractor, the traffic signals will not be turned on until the new railroad signals are operational, which could be later this summer. Until then, traffic control will be provided by a stop sign. The work zone speed limit has been reduced to 45 mph for worker safety.
