Heceta Head Lighthouse, as well as two others just to the south of Southview
Lane. The job is expected to be completed by mid-September.
Mainline paving will continue Sunday

Cathodic Protection (MP190.8 - MP191.21)
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.
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 normally be 5 minutes or less

I-5 @ Beltline Interchange – Unit 4
(MP194 to MP195.75)
This is the last phase of a
multi-year interchange project. This phase will begin with the building of a
new bridge over I-5 to accommodate a reconfigured onramp. A sound wall will be
built south of Beltline and east of Coburg Road, and then an additional lane
will be added on eastbound Beltline from Coburg Road to I-5 on ramps. For bike
and pedestrian travelers, the multi-use path will be extended south, linking
Harlow Road to North Garden Way.
Minimal delays during the day are
expected. Lanes may be closed at night. Travelers should expect distractions
from off-road work in the area and be prepared for trucks entering and exiting
the roadway. Oregon State Police will be enforcing the speed limit through the
work zone area. This project is scheduled to be completed December 2017.
