Warrenton

** Work crews have begun constructing Bugle Way, a new road in the North Coast Business Park. The new street is 650 feet long initially, but is likely to extend farther north as the park develops. The street runs from Ensign Lane to Southeast 19th Street, roughly between the Clatsop County Sheriff’s Office and the Animal Shelter.

** There could be single-lane closures on Youngs Bay Bridge during night hours on weekdays with up to 20-minute delays. A pilot car will assist drivers past the construction site. While most of the work is being done below the bridge deck, periodic single-lane closures are expected through 2020.

Astoria

** Work continues on the waterfront bridge project, which affects the north end of Sixth, Eighth and Tenth streets downtown. Work on the odd-numbered streets has been completed. The project will cause disruptions in the area through June.

** Work on Highway 30 at 30th Street could cause nighttime lane closures from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. Sunday nights through Friday mornings.

Clatsop County

** Maintenance of the Blind Slough Bridge on Brownsmead Dike Road will continue through mid-May.

** A project replacing lights inside the Arch Cape tunnel on Highway 101 south of Cannon Beach means single-lane closures with up to 20-minute delays. Work hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays with flaggers assisting drivers.

Elsewhere

** State Route 4 on the Washington side of the Columbia River, which closed after a Jan. 23 landslide nine miles west of Cathlamet, opened this week to single-lane alternating traffic.

** The Farmer Creek Bridge on Highway 101 between Beaver and Hebo in Tillamook County is being resurfaced and reconstructed, with flaggers in place, through June.
