The Oregon Department of Transportation has shut down the Maples Rest Area – the only rest area between Sisters and Salem, located on Highway 22, just east of Gates.

The rest area will be closed through the evening of September 19.

Crews will be completing a maintenance project that includes repaving of the rest area, replacing a fence on the south side of the property and widening the entrance and exit areas.

Signs will be in place to alert motorists of the closure.
