U.S. Highway 101 projects continue

The Oregon Department of Transportation’s $5.2-million improvement project is continuing along U.S. Highway 101 in Curry County between milepost 295 and 300, Childers Road to Garrison Slough.

The project will pave five miles of U.S. 101 and repair four bridges between the Sixes area and the north end of Port Orford.

The speed limit has been reduced to 40 mph at milepost 295, a one-mile section of highway between Crystal Creek and Sixes River.

Motorists are advised to watch for intermittent weekday lane closures, paving and brief delays throughout the project area as the contractor continues the road work.

Flaggers will provide traffic control as needed.

Also along U.S. 101 at various locations in Gold Beach and Brookings, drivers should prepare for intermittent 9 p.m.-6 a.m. lane closures as workers conduct a $1.6-million upgrade on local traffic signals.

The signals will be turned off for short periods of time and flaggers will provide traffic control.
