Which is the better choice with the weather? We are familiar with the Florence to Eugene route, but have never used the road from Reedsport to I 5. We came up the coast to avoid snow. Thanks!

Oh boy! The road from Reedsport to Drain is an ok road except for a tunnel and a narrow bridge. My last trip on that road cost me $9K in damage because another coach was half way on my side of the road on the bridge.Meeting a logging truck in the tunnel isn't for the feint of heart either.

I have traveled both roads and from now on, I'll go to Florence before cutting over to I5.

Now here comes those that say "no problem"

I've driven both, prefer Hwy 126 (Florence-Eugene). Be sure to check the Oregon Traffic info site TripCheck.com before you use either route.

We use Reedsport to I 5 every year for 17 years or so on the way to Florence Ore
so far we have never had a problem towing a 34 ft TT and one summer a 40 ft 5th w
