HERMISTON — Oregon Department of Transportation is closing access to Livestock Road from Westland Road near Interstate 84 exit 180 interchange southwest of Hermiston for realignment work.

The project starts the last week of October and could continue through part of November, according to a press release Friday, Oct. 21, from ODOT. Work includes some road shoulder upgrades and signage to redirect traffic to an alternate access further north on Westland Road. The traffic pattern change will improve safety, as turning movements near interchanges are often a contributing factor in crashes.
