Highway 101 Paving Update
Alex Hodge Construction and their subcontractors have begun the paving operations for U.S. 101 between the Siuslaw River Bridge and the OR126 intersection. The contractor will be paving Sunday night, Oct. 6. Asphalt grinding operations will start at 5 p.m. and paving will begin at 7 p.m. Crews will be working on paving the southbound interior lane and half of the median on the west side of U.S. 101.
Paving will require impacts to traffic flow. During grinding and paving operations, the contractor will have flaggers positioned at both the U.S. 101/OR126 junction and U.S. 101/Rhododendron Drive intersection to allow traffic to cross or enter the highway in the construction zone as necessary. Traffic on U.S. 101 will be restricted to north/south movement. Side streets will be closed along U.S. 101 during night paving activities.
Motorists are encouraged to use Kingwood Street, Quince Street, Bay Street, and other side streets as applicable to navigate through the area if it is possible to avoid using of U.S. 101. Traffic will also be shifted to the east side of U.S. 101 along the length of the project during paving operations. Please use caution in the construction zone, watch for flaggers and pay attention to the change in traffic patterns.
