NEWPORT—Mandatory work on several bridges in Lincoln and Tillamook counties will begin next week and will reduce travel to a single lane during construction. However, pedestrians and bicyclists will not lose access to the bridges at any time. ODOT crews will be prepping and sealing the decks of the bridges and will close one lane at a time according to the following schedule:
Little Nestucca River: US 101, milepost 92
Monday, August 8 and Tuesday, August 9—2 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Wednesday, August 10 and Thursday, August 11—6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Ojalla Bridge and Fuller Bridge: OR 229 (Siletz Hwy) — Milepost 20.6 and milepost 23
When: Monday, August 15 and Tuesday, August 16—6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Alsea River Bridge: OR 34, milepost 7
When: Wednesday, August 17 and Thursday, August 18—6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Flaggers will control travel over the bridges during construction. There is no complete bridge closure anticipated but motorists should expect minor delays during times of congestion. Motorists are encouraged to reduce speed and travel with caution through the construction zone. Bicyclists and pedestrians may also experience momentary delays.
Bridge deck sealing is expected to preserve and protect the bridge’s wear surface for the next 15 years.
