The North Coast will be affected by several county and state road construction projects in the coming week.
Weather permitting, county road crews will continue chip sealing operations on Fish Hawk Lane Road in Birkenfeld, Lower Nehalem River Road in Seaside and Sjoli Lane and Hungry Hollow Loop in Clatskanie. County crews will also be removing vegetation on the shoulders of Youngs River Road, Lewis and Clark Road and Logan Road.
Contractors will be removing trees and loading logs along Old Highway 101s Business loop; there will be intermittent lane closures that will be controlled by flaggers. Clatsop County Public Works urges extreme caution while driving through this work zone.
Oregon Department of Transportation crews will be recoating the steel above the bridge deck on the southern side of the Columbia River Bridge along U.S. Highway 101 north of Astoria.
State crews will also be replacing a culvert with a bridge along Highway 30 just east of Astoria between mile posts 94.42 and 95.11. Access to the old Columbia River Highway located at the project site has been permanently closed. Flaggers will control single lane traffic during construction activities as required.
Expect delays up to 20 minutes and drive through the area with caution. Oregon State Police will be enforcing the speed limit through the work zone. The project is scheduled to be completed in September 2014.
