We’re getting reports of major traffic congestion on Highway 101 through Lincoln City. Construction workers are changing out the signal lights on 101 at the D-Lake Wayside, just south of Kyllo’s. They’re also running the phone, power and high speed data lines underground so they can remove the big poles and wires that partially obscure the view of the ocean to beach visitors and folks just driving by.
No word yet on how long the congestion might last today or what might spill over into tomorrow. But for those who know the area, you might contemplate how to make time on side streets and rural roadways.
