Major traffic alert for drivers out in Josephine County.
Starting at 7:00 this morning crews began excavating a large failed water valve beneath the west bound lanes of M street just past the parkway and before Mill street.
The area won't re-open until at least 6:00 PM Monday night.
Now if crews don't finish the work by Monday night, the same delay will be in effect again Tuesday.
Officials do say M street will remain open to traffic, however west bound traffic will require re-direction through temporary travel lanes.
