This week Clatsop County crews will be applying herbicides in the Astoria District, brush chopping in the Jewell District and doing drainage system work on Burnside Loop

The Ensign Lane Road construction contractor will continue doing pavement work at the Old Highway 101 Business intersection. There will be intermittent lane closures that will be controlled by flaggers. There may be up to 20 minute traffic delays, so using alternate routes when possible is recommended.

Also this week the Oregon Department of Transportation will continue work on the Astoria Bridge. The project involves recoating the steel above the bridge deck on the southern side of the Columbia River bridge along U.S. 101 north of Astoria.

The scheduled work includes preparing and painting the bridge steel above the bridge deck. Flaggers will control single lane traffic. Lane delays of up to 20 minutes will be allowed anytime on weekdays and weekends. 

ODOT crews will also be replacing a culvert with a bridge along U.S. Highway 30 at Mill Creek, just east of Astoria between mile posts 94.42 and 95.11.

Work will include construction of the new stream channel and paving of the roadway. Traffic has been switched over to the new roadway alignment. Flaggers will control single lane traffic. Expect delays of up to 20 minutes.

Bridge rehabilitation work will be performed, including replacing the concrete bridge rail and placing a new concrete overlay on the bridge surface, along U.S. Highway 26 at its intersection with Oregon Highway 103 (Little Nestucca Highway).

The scheduled work includes overlaying the bridge deck. The roadway lane width will be narrowed to 12 feet in each direction during the majority of the work. Flaggers will control single lane traffic, and delays of up to 20 minutes can be expected.

The Oregon State Police will be enforcing the speed limit through the work zones.
