Anyone who drives north or south out of Newport knows that Highway 101 gets very loud under your tires, almost to the point you can’t carry on a conversation with anyone in the car.
ODOT has announced that their long-awaited re-paving of a stretch of 101, from Walmart clear to Beverly Beach, will take place starting in late July! Not only that but two others; from the Lost Creek Recreation area south of Newport through Seal Rock, and from the north end of the Alsea Bay Bridge northward about a half mile.
It’s get better!! ODOT’s doing the repaving at night! Completion of all this is targeted for late September.
If silence is golden, ODOT’s gone PLATINUM!
