Paving impact to end before you might want to visit China Gorge for lunch, dinner
Good news, dining connoisseurs: The contractor working on repaving the section of Highway 35 that passes near Grace Su’s China Gorge says crews will finish their work early Thursday morning and move operations south of the Button Junction intersection.
John Arambul, project manager for Kerr Construction, says work should be finished by mid-morning on Thursday.
As the crew moves paving operations southward up the hill, it will configure traffic to allow one lane of travel in each direction to avoid any delays.
“When we delay traffic, we delay our trucks trying to reach us with asphalt,” Arambul says.
Work will start at 5:30 a.m. Thursday, and wrap up in the area of the Button Junction intersection around 8:30 a.m.
For you diners looking to join Grace Su’s China Gorge for lunch at 11 a.m., no worries — we’ll be open, and accessible.
The contractor has assured the Oregon Department of Transportation that it will complete work on the repaving and striping project by July 20. The paving work will stretch several miles south along Oregon 35, past Odell.
Crews will repave a section of Historic Oregon Hwy 30 in front of Grace Su’s on the morning of Monday, July 16, a day that the restaurant is normally closed.
