The scheduled work includes installation of the containment structures and painting the bridge steel above the bridge deck. Flaggers will control single lane traffic during construction activities as required. Lane delays will be allowed anytime on weekdays and weekends. Expect delays of up to 20 minutes and drive through the area with caution. Oregon State Police will be enforcing the speed limit through the work zone area. The project is scheduled to be completed in July 2015.

(Sunset Highway, mile post 4.37 to 4.48)

The scheduled work includes the Contractor performing bridge repairs. Flaggers will control single lane traffic during construction activities as required. Expect delays of up to 20 minutes and drive through the area with caution. Oregon State Police will be enforcing the speed limit through the work zone area. The project is scheduled to be completed in October 2014.
 
US101: Necarney Creek (Sam Reed) Bridge
(Oregon Coast Highway, mile post 39.53)
This project consists of recoating the steel below the bridge deck.
 
The scheduled work includes installation of containment structures and painting the bridge below the bridge deck.  Flaggers will control single lane traffic during construction activities, Tuesday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (noon).  Expect delays of up to 20 minutes.  The project is scheduled to be completed in March 2015.
 
 
US26: West Humbug Creek Bridge   
(Sunset Highway, mile post 16.16 – 16.48)
This project will replace the existing timber structure with a single span bridge removing all abutments from the stream channel. The highway will be widened in the vicinity of the bridge to meet current standards. Foundation construction, bridge removal and beam and deck construction will be completed during a series of four and half day periods using a single lane closure. Additional shorter duration lane closures will be required in September. A reduced speed zone will be in effect for the duration of the project.  The project is scheduled to be completed in October 2014. 
For the week of September 1st, the highway will be open.  For the week of September 8th, expect work on the shoulders and intermittent flagging with delays up to 20 minutes.
OR130 (Little Nestucca River Hwy) 
(US101 to OR22)
 
Three, single-lane bridges over the Little Nestucca River on OR130 are undergoing maintenance between April 1 and Sept 30, 2014.  Work includes minor repairs to, and painting of each bridge.  Each bridge will take approximately 6-8 weeks to complete. 
 
The contractor has completed work on the first two bridges. On August 4th, the bridge at Milepost 5.97 will be opened, and the last bridge at Milepost 7.55  will close so painting can begin on that structure. This change will necessitate property owners west of Milepost 7.55 to access their properties from the west on Hwy 130.  Access from the east on Hwy 130 will be closed.  This change only affects a few properties.
 
Through traffic will need to used established detours. Options include traveling northwest on OR22 to Hebo, or OR18 southwest to Otis to reach US101. OR130 residents may be able to reach their properties using OR130 depending on their location to the bridge work.
 
It is expected that the project will wrap up and Hwy 130 will reopen on September 30.
