Highway 199 wrecks stalling coast traffic to the Rogue Valley

Rogue Valley residents trying to get home this afternoon after a weekend on Oregon's south coast can expect the trip to take a while.

Two crashes on Highway 199 near Kerby were blocking the northbound lanes as of 2 p.m., causing already heavy holiday traffic to back up, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation.

While northbound drivers can expect congestion and delays this afternoon, the southbound lanes are open, according to ODOT.
