A project to improve travel south of the Yaquina Bay Bridge has started. The work will improve movement and connections for cars, pedestrians and bikes in South Beach. Details about the work being done are shown in the map below and listed on the project webpage. Construction is expected to be completed in 2021.
What to Expect:
Increased activity and noise – You should start seeing more signs and changes to how traffic moves through South Beach. There will be increased noise from construction and from equipment moving through the work zone.
Night work – Starting March 29, the construction crew will be working at night to remove the center median throughout the project area. Expect delays and construction noise from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily.
New traffic pattern – Starting April 5, crews will be working during the day on the shoulder of the road. We will shift traffic and use the center lane to maintain flow in both directions.
