Construction Impacts

view the interactive map to learn what other projects are constructing this yearIn the two lane sections of the project area travel will be down to one lane and work will be done at night, Sunday night through Friday morning 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. In the four lane sections of the project area, work can be done during either daytime or nighttime hours and we will maintain one travel lane in each direction. 

Construction will start with the guardrails, move to the side streets before starting work on U.S. 26 itself.

There will be a second paving project​ on U.S 26 this summer from mile post 47.6 - 53.

​Pedestrians, including those with disabilities, will have access through or around work zones. 



​U.S. 26 is a major tourist route from Portland to the Seaside and Cannon Beach areas of the coast. This is also a freight route for the north coast area as well as an important regional route. 
The section of roadway between Necanicum Junction at OR 53 to the Nehalem River Bridge is in poor condition.  We will repave the highway, install new striping, signage and stormwater treatment. We will also install new guardrail and modify the existing bridge rails.
There will be lanes closures, expect delays. Work can be done during the day or night, the details will be determined after the contract is awarded.
Once construction begins, will have the most up to date information about impacts.
