Cascades Lakes Highway to open in central Oregon

BEND, Ore. (AP) — The Cascades Lakes Highway in central Oregon is expected to open on Thursday.

Deschutes County officials tell The Bulletin that the 66-mile (106-kilometer) highway that’s been closed since November could have limited parking at higher elevations due to snow.

The county’s road department each year tries to have the highway open by Memorial Day in late May.

Last year, snow and ice kept the road closed until June 5.
