- Over the next several months, crews will be working along SR-17 and in adjacent communities. Traffic in the communities and along SR-17 will be intermittently impacted.

- The project team is working to minimize traffic impacts and will provide weekly updates to residents and highway drivers. Stay informed of delays and alternate routes.
- Check project status and sign up for weekly updates on Firesafe17.com. Traffic information can also be found on 511.org.
- In addition to electronic media, there are several physical locations in the area where SR-17 Shaded Fuel Break info flyers are posted: Redwood Estates Pavilion, Redwood Estates Post Office, Redwood Estates Store, Chemeketa Park, and Summit Store.
