This section of the roadway between Necanicum Junction at OR 53 to the Nehalem River Bridge is in poor condition.
Side roads and approaches will also be repaved. ADA ramps will also be installed at the end of bridge pedestrian facilities.
We will not have a full road closure, but will have delays and lane closures.
In 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.
Work has begun and will continue through September 2021.
From mileposts 9.8 to 21.67
The section of roadway between Hayward Road to NW Mountaindale Road is in poor condition.
During construction expect delays up to 20 minutes. There will be lane closures with the work zone being controlled by flaggers and a pilot car. Work is expected to occur at night. Simple detours will be in place for paving of the OR 47 on and off-ramps.
There are provisions in the contract to allow for a 7 day work week (at night). More specific details will be determined after we have a contractor on board.
Construction will begin in 2021.
From mileposts 47.6 to 53
Removing the original paint that contains lead.
Painting under the bridge deck.
Repairing damaged steel.
Making other repairs as needed.
The contractor will also build containment structures to prevent or contain any paint and debris from falling into the Columbia River.
During construction, plan for single lane traffic with flaggers and up to 20 minute delays.
Single lane closures will be allowed:
Most work will be done during the day in the hours listed above. However, when working on the southern portion of bridge that connects to U.S. 30, the contractor will be restricted to working at night when traffic volumes are lower. Sunday night through Friday morning, between 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM.
Travelers should drive through the area with caution. Oregon State Police will be enforcing the speed limit through the work zone.
Pedestrian access below the bridge will also have temporary access routes in place.
TripCheck will have the most accurate construction impact information.
Construction will begin in the Fall of 2021.
Mileposts 1.78 to 3.32.
The bridge is located on a designated truck route and addressing the issues now will allow the bridge to remain in service following high water events.
During construction, most of the work will be done under the bridge. When lane closures are needed, the work zone will be controlled by flagging.
Construction is estimated to begin in 2021.
As part of the project we will:
During construction expect noise and delays caused by lane closures. Construction is estimated to take 5-6 months and will require 24 hour flagging.
Construction is estimated to begin in Spring 2022.
As part of the project we will:
The bridge is on a designated truck route and fixing it now will avoid significant mobility impacts.
During construction expect noise and lane closures which will cause short delays. Work will be done during the day with one lane remaining open and controlled by flagging.
Construction will begin in Spring 2022.
Located in Tillamook County, this project will provide erosion repair to the existing bridge supports. Riprap, a type of large rock used for erosion control, will be placed at locations along the bridge supports.
During construction expect noise and lane closures which will cause short delays.
Construction will begin in 2021.
This project will improve the safety of U.S. 30 between Scappoose and St. Helens (from mileposts 25.7 to 27.2) in Columbia County by:
Activity in the work zone will be intermittent as our utility partners work to move their lines and pipes to new locations. The detour will remain in place.
When roadwork restarts, expect delays and lane closures. Traffic on U.S. 30 will not be detoured, however there are alternative routes available for those wishing to avoid the work zone.
Construction is being done in stages as our contractor coordinates the work needed with our utility partners, and with the railroad contractor.
Construction is underway and expected to be completed in 2022.
U.S. 30 from 25.7 and 27.1
The project will make safety and ADA curb ramp upgrades at N Nehalem Street and Bel Air Drive where they intersect with U.S. 30.
At Bel Air Drive work will include removing the existing pedestrian ramps at all corners and installing new ADA compliant ramps.
At Nehalem Street, all the existing ramps will be removed and new ramps will be installed. This intersection will also have new pedestrian signals and push buttons installed.
Expect minimal delays during construction, and:
Construction estimated to begin in late 2021 or early 2022.

The intersection of U.S. 101 and Perkins Lane in Warrenton has frequent and severe crashes, most of which are caused by cars turning.
To reduce the potential and severity of the crashes, we will explore safety improvements including:
We plan for construction to take place at night. Travelers may experience traffic delays during construction times.
Construction is estimated to start in late 2021 or in early 2022.
Milepost 9.48 on U.S. 101
We will be improving six intersections in Scappoose, five in St. Helens, one in Columbia City, two in Clatskanie, one in Rainier and five in Astoria.
At the identified intersections, we will:
Periodic lane closures will be needed. The current plan is to:
Construction will begin in late 2021 or early 2022.
Various locations in Astoria, Clatskanie, Columbia City, Rainier, St. Helens, Scappoose
Over 50% of Oregon's curve warning and curve advisory speed signs do not meet current national standards. This is because of outdated technologies used in initial curve analysis, changes in driving habits, improvements in vehicle safety features and inconsistent curve advisory speed changes that have happened over the past several decades.
Upgrading and installing new signs will improve safety by having consistent curve advisory speeds and signs that meet the national standards.
Because many curves have posted advisory speeds that are lower than the current standards for safe driving, drivers often do not follow them. Instead, drivers travel five, ten, or more miles per hour over the posted advisory speed.
Travelers can expect lane closures and delays up to 20 minutes where work is taking place.

OR 47 Chip Seal Pavement Preservation Project
This is a preservation project that covers 24 miles from Vernonia to the junction with U.S. 26. (Mileposts 53-77). Work will be done during the daytime with flaggers controlling two-way traffic. Expect delays up to 20 minutes. We estimate completion by the end of September.

New Youngs Bay Bridge Repairs
The project will:
Most of the work that impacts the travel lanes will be done at night. There may be times when one lane closures occur to accommodate the equipment needed for the work and activities being done underneath the bridge.
A 14 day full night closure will occur in June 2021 to replace the lift span bracing. During the night closures, traffic will detour onto the U.S. 101 Business route. The route is on the map to the right.
This project is expected to be completed in late 2021.
