The Oregon Utility Notification Center (OUNC) is advising excavators to be aware of these impacts when scheduling work and calling 811 for locates. Many facility operators are making arrangements to address the potential traffic impacts. If possible, excavators may want to schedule work around August 21st. An excavator planning to start work around August 21, may want to consider calling 811 early if possible. Locators will be facing heavy traffic throughout the region. The OUNC encourages all facility operators, locators, and excavators to communicate with each other at all times and especially during this total solar eclipse. All OUNC rules and regulations are still in effect throughout this special event.
