N. Bayview Road Open to One Lane Traffic at Milepost 1.1

North Bayview Road Slide

(Lincoln County, OR – 10.24.17)

North Bayview Road is currently open to one lane traffic at milepost 1.1 due to a slide.  The road is safely passable with good sight distance.

Sunday evening (10.22.17) at 7:30 pm, Lincoln County Public Works responded to a call out regarding the slide on North Bayview Road at mp 1.1. 

A 200 foot section of roadway abutting the Alsea River broke off taking out a four foot section of roadway.  Public Works employees barricaded the failed section and pinched the traffic down to a single lane.  The following morning the concrete barricades were adjusted for the decreased roadway width and the road was widened on the up-hill side by adding rock to the shoulder.  

The northerly expansion of the road will give Lincoln County Public Works time to enlist the services of a geotechnical firm to develop a long term fix.  A permanent repair will not likely take place before next summer.  In the meantime, the situation will be monitored.
