Mid-Valley Road Closures The last time a valley resident may have been forced to ford a creek to get to town probably involved a trip to the mercantile in the trusty old wagon. With bridge replacement work scheduled on Odell Creek from now till November sometime, you might need to pull your trusty buckboard out of the barn. Alternately, you could just choose to forego your favorite shortcut and take Odell Highway or Highway 35 into town. Both Dethman Ridge and Ehrck Hill will be closed on the west ends for bridge replacement. The work is scheduled to last approximately 15 weeks, but you can check co.hood-river.or.us for updates on County Road Closures. Be safe out there. JI
