Special Notice November 16, 2023


A culvert failure threatens the structural integrity of the road prism on Apiary Road at MP 11.8, just to the west of the intersection with Schaffer Road. Therefore, as a precaution for the safety of the traveling public and those hauling within Columbia County, Apiary Road is immediately closed at MP 11.8 until further notice. The Public Works Department is working to address this situation and remedy the deficiency. Once construction begins, we anticipate between six and eight weeks for completion. Depending on the destination, traffic should use Highway 30, Highway 47, and Canaan Road/Meissner Road as detour routes (Please see the attached map for details). Schaffer Road to Pittsburg Road should not be used as a detour, as this section of Pittsburg Road may be impassable to some vehicles, and cellular service is poor in this area.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Columbia County Public Works Department at 503-397-5090 or by email at
