Details: US20/OR126 MP 92.29 to MP 92.83 EB & WB (Sisters) As of June 26, 2014, the 12 width restriction through Sisters has been lifted; however there are new requirements for loads over 12 wide traveling through this area. The movement of two loads each exceeding 12 in width traveling in opposing directions through Sisters at the same time is not allowed through a six block section of downtown Sisters between S Pine St and S Larch St due to horizontal width constraints. The lead pilot vehicle operator must ensure no oversize load over 12' in width enters the restricted section from the opposite direction before the permitted vehicle enters the restricted section. Pilot vehicles escorting wide loads exceeding 12' in width must announce their approaching presence on CB radio channel 17 prior to entering the six block section of downtown Sisters between S Pine St and S Larch St. In the event of an oncoming oversize load, one of the lead pilot vehicle operators must direct his piloted load to wait and allow the approaching load to pass safely before proceeding.
