Suggested lead: The Astoria DMV field office will be closed for a week.
SALEM – Astoria area residents will want to plan ahead if they need to go to the local DMV office next week. Public Information Officer David House explains:
House: The Astoria DMV office will be closed the entire week of May 20 for repairs and updates to the interior. :06
The office will open again at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, May 28, after the Memorial Day holiday weekend. It will take a week, House said, because the office needs a lot of work.
House: DMV has had its current location in Astoria since 1992 and the last maintenance was carpet replacement five years ago. :08
House said much of the furniture and fixtures are over 20 years old and will be updated during the closure. Remember, Astoria DMV is closed Monday, May 20 through Monday, May 27.

House: We always suggest that people check OregonDMV.com before visiting a field office in person. You can complete a few transactions online or by mail if you download a form and mail it in. :12
