Nobi’s Corner Road Project May Be Back On

A project to improve safety at Nobi’s Corner on Hood River’s Tucker Road appears to be back on.  Hood River County Commission Chair Mike Oates says he was informed by Oregon Department Of Transportation Region 1 manager Rian Windsheimer that the state should be able to pick up the tab for the work to make changes to the corner that is difficult for large trucks to get through.  Oates says funds originally planned for placing sidewalks on AGA Road in Odell will be used for the Nobi’s Corner work.  Oates said ODOT had found during preliminary study for the sidewalk project that costs were going to escalate substantially to deal with a number of obstacles to the effort.
