Flooding Hwy 101 near Seaside

It appears that ODOT’s need to create some wetlands to make up for wetlands they’re paving over somewhere else is going to fix a long running problem south of Seaside. Highway 101 at high tide south of that coastal town. It floods every time the tides and the rains join forces; but that commuter-hostile combination may be ending very soon.

Highway 18 now open two miles west of Grand Ronde

Road subsidence on Highway 18, two miles west of Grand Ronde, has created a significant road hazard. The eastbound lanes are starting to break up but traffic is being allowed through in the eastbound inside lane.

ODOT crews blame the recent heavy rains that caused local soils to become supersaturated and to slump toward the southeast.

ODOT crews are working at this hour to assess the level of subsidence and to put a big pavement patch over the whole area affected by the subsidence. They said they will have motorists shifted over to the two westbound lanes, with flaggers to regulate the traffic until the patch operation is completed. They say they’re shooting for 5pm or 6pm.

Use caustion in the area.

ODOT continues to restrict Highway 20 to one lane of travel, six miles west of Eddyville. The roadway was discovered to have no river bank shoulder last evening after swift currents of the Yaquina River undercut the bank. ODOT officials say they are hiring a contractor to replace the bank and strengthen it so that it’s safe to drive on. Reconstruction of the bank could take up to three days, according to ODOT. In the meantime ODOT flaggers will control alternating traffic using the westbound lane.

The stretch of road involved will be bypassed when the Highway 20 upgrade project is completed in 2015.
