Brush cutting begins on U.S. 101
Crews will begin at least two weeks of brush cutting along U.S. 101 on Monday, April 3. Work will start near the Newport Municipal Airport and continue south to the Alsea Bay Bridge.
For the safety of crews and travelers, one lane will be closed in the work zone area. Expect lane closures along the corridor between Newport and Waldport between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. between April 3 – 7 and April 10 – 14. The project is expected to be completed by April 14, but could last longer.
ODOT maintains roadside vegetation through brush cutting and mowing to ensure traveler visibility and to reduce potential fire hazards.
