1:33pm update – Highway 101 is down to one lane of traffic at the north end of town, but appears to apply to semi’s only which cannot take the detours. All other traffic is being re-routed to East Devils Lake Road. If you’re heading Northbound from south Lincoln City, turn right (east) onto E. Devils Lake Road at the Tanger Outlet Mall. From the north coming into Lincoln City, turn left (south) onto East Devils Lake Road. Another detour you can take if you’re headed west on Highway 18 is to turn left (south) onto North Bear Creek Road. You’ll eventually turn onto Schooner Creek Road and it’ll drop you off on Highway 101 as the south end of Lincoln City. And of course, if you’re headed north on 101 toward Lincoln City enroute to Portland, you can turn off at Schooner Creek Road, turn onto No. Bear Creek Road and get onto Highway 18 that way.
