Lookingglass Rd repairs start Tuesday


ROSEBURG, Ore. – Drivers should use caution and expect delays when three days of maintenance to extend the life of Lookingglass Road begins next week in southwest Roseburg, weather permitting.

Starting Tuesday, Aug. 29, City of Roseburg and Douglas County road maintenance crews will apply a chip-seal surface to about 4,700 linear feet, or 0.90 miles, of Lookingglass Road from Harvard Avenue south to the city limits.

The work will be performed from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is expected to be finished by Thursday, Aug. 31, according to the Roseburg Public Works Department.

Cracks in the roadway were sealed in early July before the upcoming chip sealing was scheduled.

Lookingglass Road will remain open, but drivers should expect delays, possible detours and/or flagging to control traffic.

Drivers are asked to use caution when traveling through the work zone. The City of Roseburg appreciates residents’ understanding and patience throughout the project.
