Lane County State Highway Construction
April 29 – May 5, 2016
OR99: Roosevelt – Garfield Bike/Ped Path (MP 121.14-122.25)
Contract amount: $3.34M
Project Summary: This provides a continuous pedestrian path between Garfield and Roosevelt on Hwy 99 including a new bike/ped bridge over the railroad tracks near Roosevelt.
Remarks: Work will continue on the NW side of the SE bound lanes of OR99. Expect intermittent lane closures of on the left side of OR99 SE Bound, starting at the intersection with W. 5th Avenue. Sidewalk and electrical work will continue on the business frontage to the NW of the 5th Ave and OR99 intersection, adjacent to the west side of OR99, which will push traffic into one lane along portions of the frontage as the work progresses. Watch for intermittent lane restrictions during weekday daylight hours. Access to the businesses along this frontage will be maintained. Bridge work will continue. Watch for truck traffic, workers and equipment entering and exiting the work area directly adjacent to the traveled way.

US101: Cooks Chasm – Sutton Creek Sec. (MP167.23 to MP184.80)
Contract Amount: $9.6M
Project Summary: This project will pave approximately 17 miles on the Oregon Coast Highway. Signs and guardrail will be replaced and/or adjusted. A new bridge membrane will be placed to protect Sutton Creek Bridge and surfacing stabilization work will be done on the bridge ends at both Sutton Creek and Big Creek. A new retaining wall will be constructed near Heceta Head Lighthouse, as well as two others just to the south of Southview Lane. The job is expected to be completed by the end of August.
Remarks: Shoulder widening work will be taking place this week at Cape Perpetua (about a quarter mile south of MP 167). This work requires 24 hour flagging. Pavement repairs will also be done just to the South of Mill Creek towards the middle to end of the week. Watch for truck traffic, workers and equipment entering and exiting the work area.  Maintenance activities may also be taking place within the project limits as well.

US101: Siuslaw R Bridge (Florence), Cathodic Protection (MP190.8 - MP191.21)
Contract Amount: $14.2M
Project Summary: This project will make repairs to the existing concrete and reinforcement and replace the cathodic protection system on the Siuslaw River Bridge. Seismic restraints to help maintain the integrity of the bridge in an earthquake will also be added. A new ornamental bridge rail will replace the existing rail along with improved pedestrian access to the bridge. Work is to be completed by the end of March 2019.
Remarks: Work will continue on the north end of the bridge within the containment above the parking lot south of Bay Street and EB Bay Street. Placing zinc will continue often in the night time hours. Some touchup work will also be done on the spans above and either side of Bay Street and on the corner of the Bent splitting Bay Street. Bay Street is now open to 2-way traffic under the bridge, though some flagger controlled short duration single lane closures may be needed from time to time. Work will be ongoing for most hours of the day. Also on the north end of the bridge, access and containment will continue to be installed, which may require some flagger controlled single lane closures.  On the south end of the bridge, new bridge rail installation will continue. U.S. 101 flagger-controlled single lane closures will be required while rail work occurs. The overall plan is to start on the City of Florence side of the bridge with the cathodic protection work and progress to the south. Bridge rail work will happen concurrently, starting on the south end and working north. Single lane closures, controlled by flaggers and for a short duration with pilot car, will be used for materials transfers, bridge rail and other roadwork on the approaches to the bridge. Delays may be up to 20 minutes, but will usually be of a shorter duration.
