US101: S.E. 23rd DR. – S.W. 35th ST. (Lincoln City) Sec.,  U.S. 101, MP115.9 – MP116.8
Project Summary: The project will widen US 101 with a lane in each direction and a center turn lane. It will create wider shoulders, new curb and sidewalk, a new pedestrian crossing, a new signal at 32nd St., retaining walls and landscaping.
Remarks: ODOT’s contractor is working to install retaining walls and build the large pipe crossing US 101 near 29th St. They will be installing pipe and building the roadway embankment on the new 32nd St alignment east of US101. Traffic on US 101 is on a temporary alignment while the contractor installs half of the Baldy Creek culvert across the highway near SW 29th St.
32nd St west of US 101 remains closed between Coast Ave and US101, to install a new large culvert. A signed detour will direct traffic around the work area. Motorists can expect minor delays and increased traffic in the work zone. No lanes on US 101 will be closed during the day, but flaggers may be stopping traffic for short periods to let trucks and equipment on and off the road.
