The road to the summit of Pilot Butte is now closed to drivers for the season.
The road normally closes in mid-November. And while Oregon State Parks says they usually give people advance notice of a closure, they say recent snowfall is not melting on several sections on the road.
“The upper one-tenth mile of the road is especially icy since it is shaded most of the day,” said Park Manager Joe Wanamaker.
The road remains available to pedestrians and non-motorized vehicles year-round.
Motorized vehicles will be allowed back on the road in mid-April.
