How Are Those Backroads Working?August 6th, 2008 by ed friedrich
It’s only been a few days since they blocked off Burley-Olalla Road from Highway 16, but I was wondering if it’s going to a big deal. Are Olalla Valley and Bandix roads becoming freeways? Has the mess in Purdy gotten even worse than usual?
I notice the highway speed limit is still 50 mph through there. I’ve written a bunch of times they’ll be reducing it to 40 mph, so that must be right.
The state will be having a big shindig down on Burley-Olalla on Friday, somewhere over by where the creek goes under. Paula Hammond and Judy Oke will be there, among others.
