Delays at Fall Creek BridgeTILLAMOOK - Motorists can expect 20-minute delays Thursday at the Fall Creek Bridge, 14 miles east of Tillamook.

The installation of the precast bridge girders will require stopping all traffic for up to 20 minutes to offload the delivery truck, said Oregon Department of Transportation engineers.

The project consists of installing a bridge over Fall Creek, repositioning the stream bed channel and removing the overflow culvert. A temporary signal will be in operation and engineers suggest that drivers consider an alternate route.

Motorists can log on to or call (800) 977-ODOT for traffic information.

Vessel safety checks set FridayThe Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Lower Columbia Power Squadron will offer free recreational vessel safety checks Friday in Astoria.

Vessel safety examiners will be conducting the safety checks from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Englund Marine & Industrial Supply at 29 Portway Drive.

Examiners will provide vessel safety checks and boating safety information on a first come-first served basis.

For information, contact Jack Bradbury at 861-3142 or David Wilson at 861-0709.
