Lincoln County Road Construction Update


OR 34: McKinney Slough Bridge replacement Traffic is controlled by flaggers 24/7. Crews are raising the grade of the roadway as it approaches the new structure. Traffic will be driving on gravel for up to 14 days. Expect minor delays.

An existing bridge near milepost 1.5 is being replaced with a new structure. This new structure is being constructed one half at a time. Due to limited working space one lane of traffic is closed for the duration of the project. The south half of the new structure is complete.


U.S. 101: Devil’s Lake Outlet, Schooner Cr & Siltcoos River Bridges

At D River Outlet night work is complete for the season and work will continue during the day underneath the bridge. Short duration lane closures are allowed from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. but will only be needed on occasion. Work is expected to last until the spring of 2020.


Work at Schooner Creek Bridge is expected to start in August 2019. Expect minor delays.

This project includes the following improvements at each of the three bridges:

Repair damaged concreteInstall zinc anodes to the structures to protect them from the harsh coastal climateReplace bridge railings to meet current crash standardsInstall steel and titanium rebar to strengthen bridges


U.S. 101: Yaquina Bay Bridge painting The eastern sidewalk is closed for the duration of the project. A temporary pedestrian crossing at the south end of the bridge will allow pedestrians to cross U.S. 101. At the north end, pedestrians can use the existing sidewalks under the bridge, which will be signed as the pedestrian detour route. This project is expected to last until October 2019. Expect minor delays.


Most of the work is under the bridge with no impact to traffic. There will be occasional nighttime lane closures to set up containment under the bridge and move equipment. Intermittent night work will continue with lane closures allowed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

This project is painting the steel bridge members under the roadway deck in two spans of the steel structure. These members are in need of additional protection from the harsh coastal environment.

OR 229 Paving Project The Siletz Highway is being paved from the south end of the town of Siletz to the U.S. 20 Junction (mp 24.13 to mp 32.14). Work is done during the day, Monday through Thursday. Expect lane closures and up to 20 minute delays.
