If you’re headed to the Oregon Coast, be prepared for delays between Depoe Bay and Lincoln City. A bridge rehabilitation project is underway on US 101 just over a mile north of Depoe Bay. Crews need to apply a new waterproof membrane and repave the deck of the Fogarty Creek Bridge. Expect single lane restrictions from 6 p.m.- 9 a.m. Monday-Thursday the week of June 21. The work on Tuesday morning won’t wrap up until 10 a.m. Watch out for flaggers and expect delays no longer than 20 minutes.

Lane closures are scheduled for SE Tacoma St from 17th to 23rd. The work starts Tuesday, June 23 and runs through Friday, June 26 between the hours of 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. During that time, crews will pave almost two miles of SE Tacoma St.

In Beaverton, construction crews are finally starting the project to widen and improve Farmington Rd between Hocken and Murray. That means traffic will be down to one lane in each direction beginning Monday June 22. The project and expected delays will run for more than a year. You can use TV Hwy or Allen as alternate routes.

Safety improvements scheduled for the Johnson Creek Bridge will force crews to close SE 110/112th Ave between Brookside Dr and Foster Rd on Saturday, June 20 and Sunday, June 21. The closure runs each day from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. PBOT crews are improving the guardrail on the approach to the Johnson Creek Bridge since there have been two deadly crashes there in recent years. Drivers using 112th Ave will need to take Flavel St and 122nd Ave.

Lane closures continue this week on W Burnside from NW 10th to NW 11th. Flaggers will direct traffic through both directions using the two westbound lanes of Burnside. Crews are repairing a failed road base and need to stabilize the foundation of the road to prevent potholes. Expect delays between the work hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. The project will wrap up on Friday, June 26.
