Air quality causes DEQ delays

MEDFORD, Ore. — The DEQ station in Medford on Biddle Rd. had to shut down one of it’s lanes early Friday morning because of air quality.

The DEQ manager said when the air quality gets over 200 or in the very unhealthy range, they only keep one lane open.

They do this to protect their employees and limit their exposure to unhealthy air.

The DEQ says Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays are usually the busiest day of the week .
