McKenzie Highway opens today

This morning Highway 242, The McKenzie Highway will be open to vehicles. The highway couldn’t be opened until it was made safe from various hazard trees caused by the Milli Fire last summer. People can expect to see views much like they experienced driving over the Santiam Pass after the B & B fire took place in 2003.
