A project to improve Youngs Bay Bridge on Highway 101 is under way and expected to continue through 2021. A containment structure attached to the sides of the bridge was built and most of the work is being done from a barge beneath the bridge. There will be periodic single-lane closures at night. County crews will be cleaning the Del Rey and Sunset Beach approaches.

** Astoria

A project to replace six aging bridges along Astoria’s waterfront will continue through June 2020. Seventh, Ninth and Eleventh streets are being rebuilt with an expected completion of June 15. Construction on Sixth, Eighth and Tenth streets begins after that.

** Seaside

Work crews are removing and replacing a separator island on Highway 101 between 10th and 12th avenues in Seaside. There will be single-lane closures at night to allow the contractor to perform concrete pours, with all lanes open by 4 a.m. During the day, traffic lanes will be shifted to accommodate traffic.

The Dooley Bridge, just north of the Highway 101 junction with Highway 26 is undergoing repair, including soft spot fixes, asphalt grinding and inlay, centerline rumble strips and new striping. There will be single-lane closures between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. on weekdays only.
