NEWPORT— A contractor for ODOT is expected to begin paving a section of U.S. 101, four-and-a-half miles south of Newport, by early this afternoon after rebuilding the highway foundation that had given way during last week’s powerful storm.

Two-way traffic is expected to resume at the site by early tonight. In the meantime, a single lane of travel at milepost 144.5 will remain under the control of flaggers.

In two days of construction, W-W Construction of Newport acted quickly to:

Stabilize a landslide at the location
Clear a creek bed and culvert
Excavate and rebuild the highway foundation 45-feet in depth and 80-feet in length

The contractor will spend today finishing construction of a rock base; saw cutting the adjacent asphalt; and paving a 15’X180’ foot section that includes a smooth transition between the new and existing roadway.

Weather conditions will prevent final striping of the highway but reflectors will be placed along the fog line and center line. Until final striping can occur, motorists are asked use caution while traveling through the area.
