Monday Morning Evacuation Level Update New Information

This morning, September 21st, 2020, at 8:00 a.m., the five mile section of Highway 22 from North Fork Rd to Mill City will be reduced from a level 3 area to a level 2.

As level 3 areas are reduced to level 2, we want to remind community members they are permitted to return to the area, though they should remain prepared to evacuate should conditions change.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to work closely with fire management officials, ODOT, and Marion County Public Works to re-evaluate evacuation levels.  Prior to reopening access to county roadways, assessments of culverts, bridges, and retaining walls along roadway systems are being conducted.

The areas immediately to the north of the city limits of Mill City and Gates remain at a Level 3 – “Go” evacuation status. Road closures will be in effect on Carr Road, Hudel Road and Gates Hill Road north of the city limits.
