Road Work Highlights for the coming week

Have you driven the new mile of road that goes through downtown Long Beach (SR 103 between 15th Street SE and 13th Street NE–milepost 0.80 to 1.99)?  Knife River and WDOT sure are off to a great start.   There are several arms of this project still to be completed; expect it to continue through the summer.  Here are the highlights for the coming week:

Contractor crews will use hot-mix asphalt to pave US 101 between the Astoria-Megler Bridge and Fort Columbia vicinity (mileposts 1.85 to 2.46) and crews will chip seal SR 103 between Pioneer Road W and 255th Place (mileposts 2.53 to 10.77).

  • June 22: Daytime traffic reduced to a single lane, alternating directions with flaggers on US 101 in both directions at the Astoria-Megler Bridge (milepost 0) for signal sensor replacement operations.
  • June 22: Daytime shoulder closure and intermittent single lane closures will occur southbound on US 101, Southbound near the Potter Slough Bridge (milepost 52) for culvert repair operations.
  • June 22-23: Daytime slow moving maintenance vehicle on SR 103 in both directions between 264th Place and Oysterville Road (mileposts 12-18) for roadside maintenance operations
  • June 22-26: Daytime single lane closures on SR 103 for crack sealing work between Pioneer Road W and 255th Place (mileposts 2.53-10.77) for roadside maintenance operations.
