Construction under way on Cape Creek Bridge

Posted: Friday, Jan 3rd, 2014

A project to replace sidewalks and bridge rails on the Highway 101ís Cape Creek Bridge, near Heceta Head, is under way; however, the construction schedule has changed.

Motorists traveling 101 near milepost 178 should anticipate daytime single lane restrictions through this weekend, Jan. 4 and 5. Delays of 10-20 minutes should be expected.

Beginning Monday, Jan. 13, and continuing until approximately Friday, Jan. 17, the project will entail a flagged single lane of travel 24-hours-per-day. During this time, the contractor will remove rail and sidewalk from one side of the bridge. As soon as the rail and sidewalk have been removed, the construction zone will be open to two 12-foot wide lanes of travel with intermittent daytime lane closures controlled by flaggers.††

A second week-long period of 24-hour flagged travel will be scheduled later.

During the 24 hour flagging, flaggers will control northbound and southbound vehicular

and bicycle traffic through the work zone. Twenty-four-hour flagging will also be provided for Cape Creek Road. Impact to the traveling public will be minimized to the extent practical.

Access to the Heceta Head State Park will be maintained at all times during construction.
