Community sign took a beating

Damaged Leaburg signLEABURG: One of the “Welcome” signs in Leaburg had a rough time last week when it was struck by an unknown eastbound vehicle. The structure, located at the western portal to the town, was constructed at the intersection of Leaburg Drive and the McKenzie Highway.
Community volunteers who installed the sign estimate the accident happened sometime be-
tween Thursday evening (February 13th), and before Sunday evening, Whether or not icy roads were a contributing factor isn’t known. A Lane County  Sheriff’s deputy was on the scene and apparently is working the accident but no other information is available.
Luckily, components of the structure survived the impact without breaking, perhaps in part due to the dampness of the soil. A work party to replace the sign is being organized.

 

** The sign was replaced on 2/24**
