Lane County State Highway Construction


February 8-12, 2016
OR99/West 7th Ave. intersection with West 5th Ave.
Project summary: Modifications to the traffic signal will be made and detection loops installed at this location.
Remarks: Work is weather dependent. It is scheduled overnight beginning Monday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. until Tuesday, Feb. 9 at 5 a.m. Lanes will be closed overnight, changing as needed as work progresses. There will be several short full road closures with delays of up to 20 minutes expected.
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. For this work, there will be 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 in the vicinity of the 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: Punch List work will be ongoing, but shouldn’t have as significant of an impact on traffic as the regular contract work did. We do not anticipate any punch list work on the project for the week of February 1 – 5. The majority of this work will likely take place during the daytime hours and its occurrence will be sporadic. During punch list work, travelers should expect a single lane of travel through the work zones, controlled by flaggers and often a pilot car. Single lane restrictions will likely occur during daytime for punch list work.

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 in 2019.
Remarks: Work will continue on the north end of the bridge within the containment, including electrical, zincing, along with additional containment erection on Span 4, etc. Work will be ongoing for most hours of the day. On the south end of the bridge, drilling for decorative bridge rail will continue. Single lane closures controlled by flaggers and pilot cars on US101, may be used to support this work. 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. Business access will be maintained at all times, with some traffic switches on Bay St., which will be controlled with stop/yield to on-coming traffic signs as one lane of Bay St. is fully closed at a time for containment for overhead work. Sidewalks on one side or another of Bay St. at the bridge may be closed, but alternate routes will be signed to maintain pedestrian accesses to businesses. 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.

US101: Sea Lion Point Rockwall Project (MP 166.5 & MP 179)
Contract Amount: $2.6M
Project Summary: This project will repair and increase the height of the rock wall just to the north of Sea Lion Caves on US101. It will also replace the bridge rail on a viaduct to the north of Cape Perpetua. Work is to be completed in Spring of 2016.
Remarks: Deconstruction and reconstruction of the rock wall will continue this week. The traffic staging will remain in the same configuration for a couple of months near Sea Lion Caves, with some additional work in the pull out to the south of the current traffic control set up. Work at Cape Perpetua replacing the bridge rail is tentatively scheduled to start on February 8th. This work will also require 24 hour flagging, once it begins. This project requires a single flagger controlled lane closure for 24 hours a day, with traffic separated from the work area with concrete barrier. Usually, delays will be minimal, but there may be occasions where traffic is held up to 20 minutes. Be cautious, and watch for trucks and workers moving in and out of the work area.
