ODOT to close Old Youngs Bay Bridge for 16 days starting on June 4
The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) will be closing the Old Youngs Bay Bridge on U.S. 101 (Business) from June 4-20 to replace the rapidly deteriorating deck system. The drawbridge has been closed to all marine traffic until June 30.
Additional bridge work has been performed in recent weeks. Some work will continue after the full bridge closure but this work will occur by closing one lane during the daytime or by a full bridge closure with detour at night.
Motorists will use U.S. 101 as the detour route.
