Deputies’ work makes difference
I wanted to give a big thank you the Polk County Sheriff’s Department.
For the last week, the Oregon Department of Transportation has had traffic diverted from Highway 99W through Perrydale due to a construction project.
Our small community is not set up for the volume of traffic that flows on Highway 99 on a daily basis. We have a school zone, narrow shoulders and farm equipment. The Polk County deputies did a fantastic job of “reminding” people that the detour route was not a freeway.
Their presence in the area was a big help.
Thank you for all that you do every day to protect our county, and especially for caring about our small area of the county during the detour.
