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. Steven Schultz (541) 757-4158
