Local ODOT Traffic Updates

The Oregon Department of Transportation reports that the Siuslaw River bridge in Florence will be closed for periods of one hour in the early morning hours this Friday, April 19th, as ODOT crews conduct an emergency training exercise. Beginning at 2am and continuing until 5am, the bridge and the highway will be closed to all traffic. The bridge will be re-opened each hour to allow traffic to cross the structure. All traffic will be held at the bridge during the closure periods. Drivers should be prepared for delays of up to one hour, or plan to take an alternate route. There is no detour available. This training exercise will prepare ODOT crews for a real emergency.

A portion of Date Street, between 9th and 10th Streets will be closed to through traffic on Tuesday, April 16th, weather permitting, for patch and repair work to be done. Traffic will be detoured around the work zone.
