Southbound U.S. 101 has one lane closed on the D-River Bridge in Lincoln City while a bridge support girder under the bridge is repaired. Closing the lane will reduce the weight of traffic on the bridge and provide a safer work area for crews and travelers.
Crews have been working on the D-River Bridge for the past year, rehabilitating the bridge support girders, adding reinforcement to strengthen the bridge, and applying a cathodic protection system.
Night work begins on Schooner Creek Bridge on Tuesday, September 10. Lanes will be closed and traffic flagged through the work zone. Travelers should expect minor delays between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. at the southern entrance to Lincoln City.
Expect intermittent lane closures. Single lane closures will be allowed at night when traffic volumes are lower. Temporary traffic control will be in place to guide travelers through the work zone. Sidewalks on each side of the bridges will be closed periodically. Occassionally, it may look like there is nothing happening in a closed lane, but our crews are likely repairing cracks under the bridge. Traffic can't use the location above the repair sites while cracks are being repaired from underneath.

Hydroblasting the bridges to remove the bridge rails for replacement and spraying zinc coating for the cathodic protection are noisy. Neighbors will be notified of construction schedules and what to expect.
