SISTERS, Ore. (AP) - Oregon Department of Transportation crews expect to reopen McKenzie Pass on the old McKenzie Highway on June 16.

KVAL reports (https://bit.ly/1fUhSYz) crews are plowing from both sides - one from the Santiam Pass office and one from Sisters.

The 30-mile scenic byway on Highway 242 is known for majestic waterfalls and old growth forests.

Snow closes the 5,335-foot McKenzie Pass for seven months out of the year.
