$2K in repairs reopens Ocean Blvd

Posted: Tuesday, Nov 19th, 2013

New barriers should prevent vehicles from being driven into the Siltcoos River.

DUNES CITY Dunes City reopened Ocean Boulevard Monday after about a four-month closure.

The narrow one-way residential street has been used as a two-way drive by residents without incident during the closure.

It is officially a one-way street again, its entrance off Lake Boulevard and its exit at Laurel Avenue and the turnaround at Westlake Resort.

The section of road that prompted the closing was narrow and steep, running parallel with the Siltcoos River outlet. It was showing signs of erosion and was often overgrown with brush, forcing drivers perilously close to the steep bank and a short roll down to the river.
